R2D28 I really wish I knew what he needs

  • Comments 2

Love meets needs through sacrifice.  I had a hard time with this in Round 1.  I had prayed that God would open my eyes to a need that I could meet, and finally at bedtime, I was able to share a piece of fruit with DH. Well, this morning, I prayed the same thing.  But this time, I never saw a need that I could help fulfill.  I am wondering if this is a blindness, if I have been so wrapped up in my own needs that I am completely unaware of his.  I really don't know what he needs.  I have no idea.  And if I were to ask him, I think he would say "nothing"!  Well, in writing this just now, it has dawned on me that it doesn't matter how he responds, I just need to ask.  Too late today - he has already gone to bed.  It bothers me that I don't know what he needs.  I am really praying that God will help me understand what DH needs, and how I can sacrifice to meet those needs.  

I saw my counselor for my weekly appointment today.  She agrees that DH's heart is changing based on his recent behavior, and cautioned me that his journey towards me will not be a quick one.  She told me to continue to exercise patience, and to wait on both him and God. She also suggested that this would be a good time for me to take a look back at all my journaling, specifically at my prayer requests, and look at how God is answering those prayers.  I will do that soon when I can make the time.
  • You may not be able to think of or see what his current needs are at the moment, (other than more God in his life), but the dares have opened your eyes to be less selfish and more open to seeing what he needs as things come up.  Just by doing this  dare the  best you could prepared you for seeing his needs in the future.
