Day 88: Love is not jealous

 

Love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire.—Song of Solomon 8:6 NIV

 

TODAY’S DARE

Determine to become your spouse’s biggest fan and to reject any thoughts of jealousy. To help you set your heart on your spouse and focus on their achievements, take yesterday’s list of negative attributes and discreetly burn it. Then share with your spouse how glad you are about a success he or she recently enjoyed.

 

-- I burned the list of negative attributes a while ago…I don’t even remember what was on the list, which is good because we are not supposed to remember wrongs.  “Love keeps no record of wrongs.” (1 Corinthians 13:5) 

 

I called MB about 4:00pm and she did not pick-up, so I left a voice message saying something like, “...I was just looking at the calendar today and noticed it is the 6th week of school for you…just wanted to say congratulations; I remember that the 6-week mark is a big milestone for teachers; routines are established, kids off to a good start, the stage is set for the year, etc.…so just wanted to say congrats!  That is all I wanted to say…hope you have a good rest of the day…good-bye!” 

 

I am worried, should I be making this type of contact.  I need to continue pondering this...

 

"...desiring for us to keep Him as our first love.  He doesn't want us to let anything take precedence over Him in our hearts".  Another thing that I learned through this journey is that God is even jealous (the legitimate kind that's based upon love) when I worship my wife, constantly thinking of ways I can bring her back and how I can do that.  I feel bad that I thought I could, God is the only one that can change my wife’s mind.  I still get confused at times distinguishing between showing love to her on my own or am I showing unconditional love to her enabled by God.  I believe that I am closer to the latter, but I'm awaiting more test so I can become better at this.

 

  • Be careful if your asking for more tests or trials to prove something.  There are enough trials without asking God for more.  Maybe that's not what you meant.  

    Seek wisdom from God in your questioning contacting her.  But I don't think you can get in her space enough doing just the dares.
