Yesterday, Day 1, went better than I expected. Deciding to say nothing negative took alot of the air out of any foreseen argument that we would have had, compared to what we have been regularly experiencing. It makes me think that my negative input has really added alot to our disagreements and arguments. This is an interesting observation. I am the one who has been a Christian longer and I feel convicted for what I may have been doing to our marriage in a negative way. Today I would like to continue this non negative talk and add to it the kind gesture. Not sure what I will do but I am asking God to help me with something creative.
What God has exposed to you in this first dare will get you a long way. The point here is you were willing to listen, hence realizing your faults.
But be careful. Have no expectation yet of what your changes will bring. Just depend on Christ is this journey.
This journey is between you and Christ, not you and your spouse.
And since you are new.. Take some time and read the appendix.
Thank you Sean, I needed to hear that this journey is between me and Christ and not me and my spouse. This is where I get derailed if I don't keep Him as my focus. God bless.
Remember Christ is molding you in this process. To love Him first is to love her better!
