    I am feeling very down. This is day 9 of the Love Dare and up until last night I was feeling positive and closer to God even though my husband wasn't showing real signs of wanting to stay in this marriage. We were separated once before 2 years ago, and although he hasn't left physically this time, he has left emotionally. He says he is tired of our cycle. One minute we're doing good and the next we aren't. I told him it's because we haven't got to the root of the problem yet and just because we "get into it" and fuss doesn't mean we should just leave each other. He said we could take with a pastor, but he says he's probably going to feel the same way he does now and he's tired of it. I've being praying fervently for the past week now and I almost feel like giving up. Like there's no hope in continuing this marriage if he doesn't want to work on us. Marriage to me meant a "lifetime", not just a thing to do. I am beyond devastated, but maybe it's time to let go now. Maybe this is God's way of telling me, "It's over".

  • That's your flesh talking, not God's way of saying it's over.

    this will be a journey between you and Christ, not you and him.  He will be used as a tool to mold you.  do a dare a day, no more, no less.  Do not manipulate the dares to make them easier.  Do not read ahead in the book other than the appendix, especially about leading the heart.

    It may get worse before it gets better, but this will serve purpose.

    Try journaling next time or copy and paste this in the Love Dare Journal  section, under the community tab.  More people read that section.   If you come back here I will try to remember to look for your reply or new message.

  • Thank you for taking the time out to respond to me.

  • Take it moment by moment if you have too.  Put God way above your marriage and him and peace can come for you.
