This dare couldn't have come at better timing. There are times while on this journey that I question if I still truly love my husband. I know that I do, but I am so focused on my relationship with God, that I forget that I need to be loving my husband like God does. Does this even really make sense though? God is love and the Love Dare book is all about leading your heart back to loving your spouse. So, how can I be on this journey, and sometimes question my love for my husband? I know that I love Him, and sometimes I ask God why He is making me love my husband so much when there is a chance that I will no longer have this man as my husband. It definitely gets you thinking and to better understand what Jesus has to go through every day: the rejection. I struggle sometimes though. I love my husband so much that I have given him over to God to deal with because there is nothing that I can do to save my husband. By doing so I have chosen to only communicate with my husband when the dares tell me to so all other times during the day I can focus on my relationship with God. How do you show your spouse that you love them when you don't see or speak to them more than 15 minutes out of day, if that? Then again, I think back to previous dares, be kind, be thoughtful, honor your spouse, delight in your spouse. So maybe I should be doing more on a daily basis to show him I love him. Please help... I think I'm confused :/
You show your husband you love him by Loving God first, so that you can love him better....
Also your confusion about loving your husband is simple. You are learning the true meaning of love for the first time in your life. It is not what the world says it is. You have never had Gods love in you like this before, and now that you see you must love Him first, you will soon see what real love is through Christ.
And when you get your husband back. It will be a love that your wedding day cant even match.
I am so very excited for this!
It is awesome. It really is. And the best part is, knowing this journey will take you to a point to accept Gods will in your life. To experience a happiness you never had.
