Collaborate without boundaries

Day 3 - oh the things God shows you...

  • Comments 3

As I sat in bed writing in my day three journal the Lord revealed the reason for the detour from day three To the mechanic. 

 

I mentioned my sorrow over having to "make" my husband assist me and be there to help me.  Then it hit me, he's always been there for me, even now staying in our home, it's all because of the way he loves me.   I didn't make him, the Lord just revealed this to me.

 

He never stopped, it was me who became selfish and thoughtless.  Never again!  I feel like a kid in a candy store looking at everything I ever wanted but it's not mine, at least not now, not until I am right with my heart for our Lord. 

 

By the grace, mercy, forgiveness , and love of our Heavenly Father, I know I will grow as the child of God He intended me to be and I was for 32 years to the man He gifted me with to have and to hold .

 

  • As you do the dares seek wisdom to learn of things like what was revealed to you last night.

  • We are all selfish. To a seemingly infinite degree. I tell myself every day I'm going to die to self, as the Bible tells me, and live for others, but every day I find myself making selfish decisions. This is a struggle that not everyone can handle. That's why we have so much divorce, so much murder, so much sin. We are all selfish.

    I know for myself I ever saw my wife as a gift. I never really paid much attention to God. I knew He was there but thought He wasn't that interested in me. Looking back I now see that God gave me way more than I deserved. Now I am losing it. Is this a lesson? What should I learn? Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The fruits of the spirit. All things I struggled with. Now, with or without my wife, it is my job to teach others this.

    Do what God asks and He will bless you.

  • Eddie, you don't know my husband.  He is the most selfless person I have ever known.  Even now, he left after my hurting him so deeply but made sure I knew he would be back!!!

    All I can do is keep focused on the changes God is revealing to me and pray that my husband's mercy and care for me doesn't run dry before I get there.
