Day 4: Love is thoughtful

 

How precious also are Your thoughts to me. . . .How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. —Psalm 139:17–18

 

TODAY’S DARE

Contact your spouse sometime during the business of the day. Have no agenda other than asking how he or she is doing and if there is anything you could do for them.

 

Based on dare #4, I called MB today at about 5pm and asked her if there is anything I could do to help her.  I offered to fix, adjust, assemble, etc anything.  She said she was fine and did not need any help. It was a short call.  I think I caught her off guard, I think she was surprised I was asking her.  She seemed nice about it, especially after her not so nice text message regarding "the hug."  I was nervous about it all day and once I did it, I felt relief. 

I am convinced these 40 days are going to be tough, but I feel I need to endure it.  This should make me stronger and learn to love better.

 

Tomorrow (#5) I am supposed to ask her to give me three things that irritate her and I am to just let her vent (I am not to get defensive).  I will see her tomorrow.

 

  • These dares will certainly mold you and yes, she will be surprised at some of the dares. Just remember, the dare is your journey with Christ, she is the tool in these dares.

  • Remember her reaction isn't inmportant.  You doing the dares is.  

    When you get texts like that you really can still be in Christ's joy, even in the painful text.  

    Often when you feel she is going to stay in a bad mood she will often let go of the extra anger or frustration.  but do not take comfort in that.  Look toward Christ for  all your comfort.  Even in the best marraiges, a spouse will always disappoint.  God is the only one who will not.
