Day 14—Love Takes Delight
“Purposefully neglect an activity you would
normally do so you can spend quality time with your spouse. Do something he or
she would love to do or a project they’d really like to work on. Just be
This is a
dare I WANT to do every day. All I want is to spend time with him, which is why
this past week I would be so anxious to get home, so I wouldn’t miss an
opportunity to be with him. I’ve been praying about it because I cannot let
that stop me from experiencing each day how God wants me to. He certainly
answered that prayer because in the past week I’ve had two friends I haven’t
talked to in a long time ask me out of the blue to get together. He obviously
wants me to get out of the house.
when I got home from lunch with a friend my husband had just woke up and got
ready. I asked if he wanted to take our dog to the dog park together. The
answer was no. He packed his stuff and said he was staying the night at the
other house he has been staying at on his days off. I had a feeling that was going
to happen, but still had hope all that morning that he wouldn’t leave.
It is hard
to not get confused sometimes. When he has gotten home from work the past
couple of mornings, rather than going straight to bed he will talk with me. I
will ask how his night at work went in which he will open up and start telling
me all about it. I treasure those moments, so it is hard to not feel hurt when
it goes from that to him leaving. I am reminded of 1 Corinthians 14:33—“For God
is not the author of confusion, but of peace.”
Jenn it is moments like these you want to compare things with your relationship with Christ.
Think about how in the past you would go your own way and leave Christ.
Every single dare and day will give you insight to your relationship with Christ.
