Today I completed day #6 and just like the previous dares this one was just as difficult but the Lord has been good and He is my rock. Its gotten very hard since she is not physically here but I'm still praying, hoping and proclaiming VICTORY. I know this journey wont get easier but with God's guidance and strength I shall overcome any opposition. My life is His and my marriage is His, I'll do my part and leave the results to Him. Continue to intercede for me and my wife. Thank you guys! God Bless you all.
There is a reason Christ put you on this journey and she is not there. Many things He will be molding in your life will become clear if you are willing to listen....
Today is my first day of the dare...here is my story...me and my husband have been married for almost 3 years. we have two kids together..i have issues and push my husband away and now he has left our home three weeks ago and wants a divorce ....when he lefted i finally turn towards God and welcome him into my life....it was a hard day today he brought our children home and cuss me about money and keep on texting me when im going to sign the papers and stuff any advise
Continue the dare daily. Make sure you read everything before day 1 in the book. Also take time to read the appendix, there is great insight there for your journey.
As the days go on, you will learn new things, and as you implement them into your life Christ will mold you each day. Things will most certainly get worse before they get better. But there is a good reason for that. But remember, Christ will be walking with you in this journey.
Only read 1 dare a day. Do not look ahead. And continue to come to this site. There are many here that have been through what you have and are willing to share.
well i have started day 2 i text him after he text me about signing paper....i text him i hope you are having a good day at work im sending you a letter and some money( which basically talk about my wrong doing in our marrige ,that if a divorce is what he wants i will give him one that i love him enough to do it, and if he thought it was a mistake i would take him back) dont know if that was the wrong thing but i feel i was being unselfish also sent some money to help with the bills
Is there any manipulation intended in the letter by saying you would give him a divorce?
I think right now, in your communication to him, you need to stick to the dares... Leave your options out of it. That is your way of dealing with it... And this journey is proving to you that your way is part of the reason you are here. You need to trust Christ.
I was the wife who said those things. I left. I filed for divorce, and I broke his heart. But God is more powerful than anything, and HE changed my heart. I did the Love Dare as a divorced woman with an ex husband who was in a long term relationship with my neighbor. I just kept praying that God would make something beautiful out of the big mess I created. My ex and I are in Christian counseling, and working towards remarriage. You can only do YOUR part. Let God do the rest.
i dont think i was .....i told him in the letter i really didnt want a divorce but if this is truly would make him happy i would give him one.....I have faith in Christ that his will be done.....i pray every night that He will wrap His love around my husband to go to him ....Im new to beng a true christian so I laid my burden down at His feet
Praise God... Now, have faith in that and trust Him completely with it.
HI Again Guys
I am still having some difficulty trying to complete dares. Its been a very slow process. I havent seen my husband physically for over 2 weeks. I was able to complete at least 3 dares but i think it was more along the lines of me giving an olive branch towards his side of the family namely his sisters. One of them called me to thank me for being supportive during her crumbling marriage and said that "one day.." we should meet together . I told her that I am here if she ever wants to come by and I can make her lunch or dinner. I left it open. His other sister is here on holiday for 6 weeks from overseas. I invited her also and she was very thankful. My husband didnt comment at all. He been going by the house when I am not at home and taking showers and changing into fresh clothing. It frustrates me. He just seems to get farther and farther away from me. I have prayed it through and I look forward to making peace with his family members because I know that my husbands family . ut I cant help feeling hopeless at times.
Actually you can... When you learn to trust and depend on Christ, you will never feel hopeless again.
It has been alittle over one year since Ive been doing the Love Dare and on this site. I want to give thanks to all those who have supported me during my journey. Thanks especially to Sean for holding me accountable for my actions and negative thinking. Tommorrow is my wedding anniversary July 24th. It is supposed to be 12 years of marriage. Like I mentioned in my last post I am having difficulty completing my dares at times. Its a very very slow process but I been coming along. One of my christian friends suggested that I invite my husband to church tommorrow and if I am unsuccessful continue to pray for my husband and for Gods will in your lives. SIGH... I will give it a try
Pray for Gods will in this situation. A convicted heart can do wonders... Please update us.
Yesterday came and went. I did not get a hold of my husband. I called him and the phone continue to ring and ring . He never answered. I went to a baby shower in the afternoon and the guest of honour remembered that it was my wedding anniverssary. She actually had a group of people come to wish me well. I was shocked but a little saddened at the same time because many questions were being asked.. i.e how many years? what are you plans? it was nice that you came to the shower ... I went back home later in the afternoon and I prayed for quite some time. I tried calling one more time and no answer. I took a short nap and when I awoke something told me not to really worry . I have prayed for God's will in both of our lives and his perfect timing. I guess my husband is busy "doing his own thing" and very well please with his choices. I will actually be seeing his sister this weekend (the one from overseas). My meeting with her is actually one of my dares. My husband knows that I have been in contact with her and he hasnt really asked me anything about it. ... I will keep you posted.
Be proud that His will is upon you and share that testimony.
