Day 17 Love Promotes Intimacy- Done

  • Comments 3

My wife hasn't been home for two days. I sent her a text last night after reading and praying. It said:

1 John 4:18 "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love." I'm not afraid to say I hurt you and I was wrong about many things. Husband and wife have a connection like no other on earth and I betrayed that. Our secrets are our secrets no matter what you do. I'll be here for you to lean on and my heart is yours to do with what you want."

I haven't received a response and I don't expect to but I know she sees a tremendous change in me. I see tremendous change in myself and I feel like a much better human being, thanks to God being so close to me now. My therapist is amazed at the progress I've made in one year. She may never see it or learn to accept it even if she does but that's her choice. I have made it crystal clear that I am devoted to God's Word and to her under any and all circumstances and I will love her unconditionally.

I watched a movie called "The Case for Christ" last night and I got a new prayer for my wife from it. Ezekiel 32:26- "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." I believe my wife, right now, has a heart of stone. I pray for God to give her a heart of flesh so she can let me in.

  • I would really caution doing more than a dare for the day.  So often we want to do more, but it gets in there space.  And the more we get in there space the more they pull back.  We also tend to get in Christ's way when we do more than a date a day.

    Unless she likes receiving bible verses it may push her further away.

  • tim- I thought I was only doing one dare a day. If you see something different help me understand. I don't want to over do it or push her away even further. And I certainly want to work in God's time.

    Since my wife hasn't really talked to me in a long time I tried to come up with a way to do day 17 by letting her know that I will never share our secrets because she has mentioned recently that she's afraid I will. I want her to know that I will never betray her trust. I was hoping that the Bible verse would transition into the message I was trying to send about not being afraid to tell her how I feel. I didn't want her to think I just sent that out of the blue.

  • Eddie, I am very sorry about the poor response.  I for some reason, thought the verse that you text was in addition to the dare. Sorry about that.  I am not sure.  But i may post a journal entry further explaining.  if i do please everyone read it.

    You have caught on quickly and it is good to see.
