Day 38—Love Fulfills Dreams
“Ask yourself what your mate would want if it
was obtainable. Commit this to prayer, and start mapping out a plan for
meeting some (if not all) of their desires, to whatever level you possibly can.”
my husband want if obtainable? When I
ask myself that question, at this point what immediately comes to mind is me
being a changed person. By that I mean him having my support, trust, respect,
affection, listening to him whole
heartedly, and putting him “first” (after God). This journey has definitely opened my eyes to my areas of weakness that would ultimately fulfill my husband's desires in a wife.
reminded that “it wasn’t when I was behaving like an angel that God chose to
pour out His love on me. It wasn’t because I was so deserving that He offered
me His grace. God demonstrates His own
love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans
5:8). He is my model. He’s the One my love is designed to imitate. Though I
am not always deserving of it, He gives it anyway. He paid the price.”
said, I continue to dare to think in terms of overwhelming my husband with love—to
surprise him by exceeding all of his expectations with my kindness despite his angry
words and actions.
I was actually
pleasantly surprised/speechless by an email I received out of the blue from him—
I really wish things were different. This is the
worst thing I have ever gone through. I'm in so much pain because I know
things will never be the same. I do love you and miss you more than you
could ever imagine. I don't know why things got to this point. I wish I
was dead. My heart aches. You were supposed to be the one I was going to grow
old with. Now I know that will never happen and I'm scared.
the “nicest” thing he has said to me in months. I did not see that coming especially
after seeing him Sunday with zero change to his actions/words. I have yet to
respond. Still need to pray about what to say, but I do feel He wants me to reply.
You need to make clear to him this is all part of Gods plan. That without all this you could not be the person Christ wants you to be, you would not be able to share a love that Christ is currently molding you to.
