    Terri, why are you still fearing your EX-husband? Ex says it all, you have control of the situation him being your ex and all. You have to let go of this man completely, I understand you have children with this man but something’s going to have give and I pray to God it’s not your life because like I said, this man has a hold on your life that’s keeping you full of fear. Please seek counseling and support to be freed from this. God didn’t give you life to live in fear. I know what it’s like being afraid and living in fear, been there, done that. I had to get help and support, my ex had a hold on me that I allowed, I would get sick, throwing up, go to bed crying, wake up crying oh it was a mess. I had to get help because the enemy did have a grip on me but trusting God, being honest about my situation, and seeking counseling then and only then was I released. Try it, it starts with you. You must do something to STOP letting this man be your God, in all honesty you are allowing this to happen so if you are really, I mean really tired of living in this volatile environment that you have control over please do something about it. You also do not have to interface with this man. Lastly, PLEASE STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FREEDOM FROM THIS FEAR. I’ll be praying for you.

    Interesting calls today involving fear and being afraid, and the women made so many excuses for these men whether being the ex husband or son. Jean, the last caller’s son is sick and she is extremely afraid of her son and he is thriving off the fact that his mother is afraid of him, now he’s getting ready to marry a women who he’s physically abused and the mother is not interceding as she should, now is not the time to play blind eyes or deaf ears on this, lives are at risk. You have a right to take a stand on this to help your life, your to be daughter-in-law’s life, and your sons life. Please do something about this ASAP if not sooner. Blessings and prays to you.
