    Day 19—Love is Impossible

     

    “Look back over the dares from previous days. Were there some that seemed impossible to you? Have you realized your need for God to change your heart and to give you the ability to love? Ask Him to show you where you stand with Him, and ask for the strength and grace to settle your eternal destination.”

     

    I wouldn’t say there were any dares from previous days that seemed impossible to want to do. There were/are ones I just simply couldn’t do due to the situation of that particular day. Day 7, I call my ‘turning point’ day is when I would say I accepted the love he was giving me for my husband from that day forward despite everything that has taken place and has yet to come.

     

    “The secret this chapter points out is that you cannot manufacture unconditional love out of your own heart. It’s impossible. It’s beyond your capabilities. It’s beyond all our capabilities. So how can we do it? It’s something only God can do. But because of His great love for you—and His love for your spouse—He chooses to express His love through you.” I find the question is - will YOU accept it?

     

    I can honestly say I have, which allows me to continue through this journey no matter how horrible my husband may be treating me out of his own guilt/anger/hurt. It was another rough morning of very hurtful words, but I take what God has given me—patience, grace, unconditional love—and put it to work at full force.

     

    I am still holding on to something that is causing me to carry around some of my own continued guilt (was not disclosed in Day 17). In God’s time, it will be let go. After tonight I can truly see God’s plan with this particular situation carrying itself out more and more. Most likely another storm is coming with it, but I KNOW I will get through it.

     

    “The truth is you can’t live without Him and you can’t love without Him. But there is not telling what He could do in your marriage if you put your trust in Him.” <--- Amen!
