After Everything That's Going On...Now This

I think I've been holding it together really well considering my husband just walked out on me and my four kids, leaving me with two car notes and all the other bills. So after a long day of work, I picked my youngest son up and went home only to be greeted by my soon to be ex shortly after. 

Before leaving, he asked me if I missed him at all. I couldn't answer him at the time, but I called him a couple of hours later.  I told him that I missed the way things used to be. I tried to get him to see that he should stay with his family, but he said his mind was made up.  So now I have to move on with no regrets and no looking back.  I've tried and tried to get him to see that what he's doing is wrong.  I don't see how a Christian man can just walk away from his family, but that's what he's doing.

I went to bed early without supper because my stomach was feeling upset which I attributed to all the stress I was under.  However, around midnight when my two year old woke up sick, I soon joined him.  On top of everything else, me and my two year old are now so sick! 

I have been praying that God gets us through all of this. I don't know how much I can handle before I completely shut down.  I look to the verse: "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.  God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it"  (I Corrinthians 10:13).  So I know that even though this is hard,  I can get it if I just hold on to God.
