Grandfather, Great Mystery, teach me how to trust my heart, my mind,my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space and love beyond my fear, and thus Walk in Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun.

Perfect. I truly could not have said this better myself. Exactly what I feel but I did not have the words to articulate as such.

Dear Lord,

Please give me the strength to get through the next few months/weeks/days/hours.. through the first night of him gone, even.

This relationship may not be meant to be, the only thing that is certain, is that as a struggling alcoholic, I am doing him more harm than good by trying to stay with him right now. I didn't know it was a weakness in him. I didn't know I was his prime enabler, on top of being most likely his prime reason for turning back to alcohol as well, within the past year. And more importantly, I have absolutely no idea how to combat the inner battle waging war within my fiancee of 1 year who is struggling with alcohol abuse.

These next few days will be very critical while he attempts to locate and maintain a new place to stay, by himself. I pray that any hardships he faces while he is on his own now, he does not turn in resentment against me.
This is not a comfortable situation for either of us, but it hasn't been comfortable stable environment for awhile, now.

I loved him enough to confront him for the sake of our relationship, to yield no positive results. I love him enough to make him leave this morning, to try to sort this out and give him his space to focus and work on himself, before we work on fixing us as a couple, even if in the long haul, it may ultimately mean I risk never being able to reconcile with him once the dust has settled.

At least, that is how I'm trying to rationalize it tonight.

Lord, please bring me strength, and wisdom, to know what I need to improve upon during this seperation, and please let him find peace, and responsibility, and the steadfast assurance that I love him, no matter what the outcome may be.

This morning I woke up feeling weak and uneasy; all the troubles of yesterday that brought me no worry seemed to have burden me today. I ask that your restore the power of faith, patience, and courage in me so I can can stand tall against the roadblocks that I face. Please allow me to use my faculties to help the deserving in their time of need. I am letting my guards down so goodness can infiltrate my being.

Prayers for those in Nashville, Tennessee and those along the Gulf Coast. Having lived in both of these areas, my heart is breaking for so many right now.
