    I don’t know what to do, I have much pain, been to chiropractors, took opiates, not any longer, but still have pain, and the only thing I can find to offer any kind of relief is drinking. I understand your show is against drugs, alcohol, and I cannot tolerate (physically, any of the drugs that are currently on the marketplace like Lyrica etc.., have tried several with bad effects), so, short of suicide (not considered), I guess the only thing remaining is divorce for peace of mind, as the wife listens to your show, and no peace for the pauper remains. At least it has helped me to know I need to be alone for all the suffering I have to endure in physical pain, I know Christ loves me and I know I am saved, having being born again, not of water but of the Spirit. I know God is against divorce, however, to spare my better half, it is best to move on as I cannot be perfect in both mind and body. Thanks for clearing it up for both the wife and I. Perfection remains a goal, not achievable in this life, but still a goal. Good luck to you and yours, may you never achieve pain or sorrow in this life. It is too bad, we are in a fallen world, and in a fallen body, where none have answers, only their own solutions.

    This is Wendy; thank you for taking my call today. I’m really hoping and praying that God will open a way for me to be able to attend “Women In The Battle”. Thankyou for asking people to consider sponsoring me!! I remain hopeful! 🙂

    Regarding the first caller, it is normal for a woman to feel she is not enough. It’s too bad we always blame ourselves for their insecurities. What if women were looking at porn and men were always feeling like they had to compete with those pictures? They would feel inadequate too.
