Days 1 and 2 have been very difficult. Since my husband told me he wants a divorce this past Thursday. His whole demeanor has changed since I told him that I did not want to seperate. He told me that I needed to be civil about this for the kids and that I was fighting him. He does not want to talk to me and he uses a very short tone of voice with me when he is required to speak. I did do the first two dares but it was not easy. The hard part of this is that he bought this book and got to day 5 when the circumstances of our marriage caused him to stop. I then picked it up a year later and stopped halfway through it. So he is aware of what I am doing. I can only trust in God at this point and rely heavily on him We are both believers so I am praying without ceasing and hoping for a miracle. Please agree with me and that God will give the strength.
Wendy. First understand that this dare is a journey with you and Christ. Your husband is just a tool that Christ will use to understand and humble. With that understood. You can now look to see how Christ is trying to mold you more in His image each day.
How you long for your husband, is how Christ longs for you. Christ needs to be first in your life. So love Christ first and you can love others better.
Now, starting the dare in the past. You asked Christ into your life and marriage. However you as well as your husband chose to not trust Christ in His way and decided to do it your ways. I know that sounds kinda harsh, but its ok, you did not understand what the journey truly was.
Take each day and do the dares as they are intended. Do not manipulate them to be your way. You need to trust Christ no matter what the responses or rejections maybe. There is a reason for them.
We are here everyday. And there are many good journals here to read of others journeys.
You are right. I did not trust in Christ the first time. This time he has put me in the position to have to put my total trust in him. He has put me in place of quietness. I have chose to walk with God in this journey. I have not mumbled and complained to anyone about this. I want to hear God's voice. I didn't see this comment until today(day 7) and I am grateful for his grace and for showing me his love. I thank you for your comments.
He will wait patiently...
