Day 14 Love Takes Delight- Done as good as possible

  • Comments 1

My wife has made it perfectly clear in the last few weeks that she does not want anything to do with me. She said she does not want to spend time with me even if it is with the kids. I thought all day about how to accomplish this dare and all I could think to do was invite her to take the kids to the movies together. She agreed and to say the least I was shocked. It is the first time she's done anything with the family in months. We sat with one kid between us and enjoyed the movie which had themes of forgiveness and love, which I feel like she needs in her life right now. She offered to pay for half the cost since we've split the bills but I paid for everything because that's what I wanted to do.

We went to church this morning together. It's the first time she's been in a month. In morning Bible study we have been studying forgiveness. The preacher said that there are many situations which become uncomfortable because of a lack of forgiveness. This was one of those times. I felt like everything he said was directed at her because that is exactly the way she is acting. Like she can't forgive me. The church knows our situation also and they have comforted me and said they pray for us a lot. It's confusing to me how she sits through church services when they frequently mention how divorce is wrong and then comes home and says she is still getting divorced. This morning the preacher even mentioned that sometimes the church has to reprimand members who blatantly defy Gods commandments. Which according to the New Testament would be a person divorcing without cause. But she just lets it go in one ear and out the other. Maybe I'm just dwelling too much on these thoughts. It hasn't affected my faith though. I still believe Jesus Christ is my one true love.

  • She will ignore, justify, and twist things to make herself feel justified in her behavior.  And this will add conviction upon her along with you  continuing what the dares teach.  

    keep leaving the door a little more open for God to work by staying consistent in what the dares teach.

    She may show more anger as the conviction becomes stronger.  Thus the it gets worse before it gets better.  and when/if it does, this is where you need to stay very consistent and not follow your emotions.  It will be a good time to just Be still and know He is God.
