Day 158: Love fulfills dreams

Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart.—Psalm 37:4

TODAY’S DARE

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.

-- Today’s dare reminds me of how amazing God’s love is…God showers us with love and acceptance even though we are in no way deserving of His grace.  When we look at our spouse and their needs, wants, or requests, we have to be reminded that we are all sinners in need of grace and forgiveness.  As God commands us, I will continually express a heart of love and forgiveness towards MB.  Our goal should be to walk as Jesus walked and model His love for others…and that I will.  

So for today, the best I could do is commit this to prayer: Dear Father God, I come to you in Jesus’ name.  Thank you for your forgiving nature. Father God, as I strive to stand for my marriage, help us to forgive one another for things that may hurt or offend us. Help us to walk in forgiveness and NEVER lose sight of the fact that you have forgiven us.  Father God, help us to show your mercy and grace, me to Mary Beth and Mary Beth to me, each time we need it and not bring up past hurts or failures. Father God, let us be an example of forgiveness to not only to each other but also to our children and to those around us so we can show Your love to all.  Father God, help us to also forgive ourselves if we struggle with condemnation or vilifying the other.  Father God, thank you for Your life-giving words of truth that we may be redeemed by blood.  In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!  

I am thankful to our God for: being able to have a good discussion with friends this evening regarding forgiveness; helping me with a presentation today at work; and getting two positive signs from God in the past two days.

 

  • We are all sinners. That's the thing I have to constantly remind myself of when I blame my ex for something. I've done as much as she has. My goal should be to walk as Jesus.

    Struggling with vilification- that's all that goes on in my life. I've tried to stop it but when my kids tell me something she said my first reaction has been to defend myself to make her look worse than me. I need to forgive. I know this however I struggle with it.
