Read the dare. Prayed on it. Didn’t know what to expect. In the morning I got ready for work and text the kids to say good morning. While at work I prayed about the dare and God answered.
My wife has the kids and she was working. Our oldest daughter(15yrs) text me about going to movies with her friends. I told her to check with her mom and if she need a ride I work take her after work. My daughter replied back,” never mind”. So I asked what was wrong. She told me,” mom said I could go to movies but dad can not take you”. This hurt. So I prayed again. I sent my wife a text asking if she said that to our daughter, she said,”no”. But why would my daughter make that up? I then sent her a text saying that it wasn’t right to punish our daughter for our mistakes. I ended the message with,” After praying, I realized that I can no longer worry about you. I will pray for you, I will love you even if you don’t love me, but I have to focus on God and my relationship with him”. She responded that I should stop playing games. I didn’t reply. On my way home from work I asked my daughter to ask her mom again about the movies. My daughter text back,” mom said it’s ok if you take me”.
I didn’t think the dare was working until that moment. I realized that I let God worry and guide me. I stayed calm and most importantly I released myself on my wife’s decision of leaving me and wanting me to do everything. I felt so much relief. I am not worried about her or if she responds to me or if she tries to get me mad.
This is the first day that I feel good. Amen. God is love!
granehe, doesn't sound like your playing games but it does sound like you wife is blind and lost just like mine. Pray for them and forgive them, it will set you free.
Mike, are you doing the dares?
