Fulfilling dreams has been what my goal was the past eight years. I strived to make my hunny's dreams come true to the detriment of my own. I lost myself in there trying to keep him happy and amused. Just a couple days ago he was saying something about how things aren't going well, and I told him he needed God in his life and asked him to go to sunday service with me, he flat out refused. He thinks that he wouldn't be accepted, and also he has some off the wall ideas about religion in general. I have not been a huge follower myself, and I knew how he felt about religion and thought it would be ok, he had so many other positive points to dwell on. Now I am seeing that I was mistaken. When I went to church today, I was welcomed by the whole congregation. It was a warm and heartfelt welcome too. And then psalm 46 was read, and I knew that I was here for a reason. I needed to hear the words.
I was able to talk with him when he got home later, told him about going to church. He tried to tease me about it but I didn't let it bother me. He got angry and left. I can show him how I am, how I feel, but I can't make him believe; that's in God's hands.
Your right you cannot make him. But you can help.
People of the world know that if they take the leap the "good things" in their life may not be the same.
What they do not realize is that things actually get better. But here is where you can help.
The more you grow closer to Christ, the more of a testimony you become. The more you shine in the hard times. When he has worries and you do not. But the best part is Christ will work on him.
And his refusal is a good thing. Notice how he would tease you? that is how he deals with guilt and conviction. Which means deep down he knows he needs it. He knows you are doing right.
