I decided to honor her by giving her all my attention when she
speaks, and to never raise my voice to her in whatever circumstances. This doesn’t seem to be practical since we
seldom talk to each other. But then
again, arguments can readily take place with our present situation. Not to mention here, I do honor her in many other ways.
Before she left for work this morning, she told me that our daughter got into
some kind of trouble again. It seems that our daughter got my bad temper . After that, she started ‘reciting’ the other things I did which she said got us into
this mess. It’s good that she’s leaving
for work and doesn’t have the time to recite everything. She
hasn’t forgiven me because all the anger is still inside her. I pray to God to soften her heart so that she can find forgiveness for me.
Anyway, I chose to ignore her and instead asked if I could call and
talk our daughter. She said it’s not the
right time for me to do that. I need to pray for my girl, too. I never imagine in my life that I will be praying for two women at the same time. I'm the one they got, so I don't mind.
She’s not yet home when I got home at 8:30pm. I cooked dinner. I was having dinner when she got home. I called her to join me but she said she’s
done. She went into her room and no more talking. No
mention of her filing the divorce yesterday, either.
Keep praying and keep believing that God is working behind the scenes.Always reply with a soft answer.You are the priest of your house and the gatekeeper.you must pray for your wife and daughter.You must be aware of what is entering your house and what is influencing your wife and daughter.
Why do you need permission to talk to your daughter? Maybe that is part of the problem your daughter is having.
And praying for 2 women? Actually there should be more. If you have accepted Christ and are saved by His grace, what about praying for others and their salvation...? You can be that testimony to many more.
Thanks my friend for your continued support. It really mean a lot to me and give me a whole lot of encouragements in my journey with Him. That goes for everybody else, too.
I was trying to know if my daughter will be in the ‘mood’ to talk to me since she’s closer to our daughter and know her better. But I agree. I don’t need her permission.
Also, I totally agree with you on praying for others and their salvation... and be that testimony to many more.
I don’t really have a good personal relationship with the Lord in the past, and I’m not sure if I have that now. I’ m trying to improve in that area. The Holy Spirit is suppose to guide me and prompt me on what to do if I have a very good personal relationship with Him. When I said in my last Dare that I surrendered everything to Him, I also asked Him to use me in any way so I can be of help to anybody in need thru prayers. I believe He is accepting my offer thru you, Sean, but I know that I still have a lot to learn. Thank you for showing the way to be of service to God and to humankind.
Here is the biggest misunderstand by many. You may not have had a good personal relationship with Christ. However, when you start this journey, you have opened your heart and your mind to accepting Him and his guidance. Which means you have an awesome relationship with Him now. And as the days go on, and you trust Him, and serve Him, it will always get better. But remember, This is not the same as someone you just meet and you have to build that relationship to be good. Christ has known you since before birth. So the second you were willing to open to Him, it took you to a whole new level.
I do understand how you feel about praying for two women but you should be praying for anyone that concerns you about any issues. I have been praying for our boys as well. As they are in their teens and it is not easy ride on coller coaster with peer pressures ,etc. we do have a daughter. shes a college age student. she no longer living at home. matter of fact, i have been praying for her as well, too. I have not seen or speak with her for a long time. Yesterday, was my lowest point of feeling aboyt our edaughter but i kept praying with christ and hoping that Christ is working on her. I do understand she s 18 but was living in our roof. she needed to respect and obey the house rules but we respect vice verdsa. She felt that since she brought her own car, which is great, but it doesnt mean she can come and go as she pleases. She choose to walk out of the house. she brought home a puppy without discussing with us. we put our dog to sleep after 15 years with us. We werent ready to have another one at that time when our daughter brought hers home. I do admit that i can be a "naggy" but with good reasons. My husband do happened to agree with me aobut the siutatuion. He tried to smooth it out and discussing to make our daughter understand. she choose not to. I have to respect and let her learn on her own in the "real World" My sister in law mentioned to me that when our daugther spoke with her about what happened, my sis in law said it sounded like a "bragging" story to everyone. Eventhough not knowing the whole story. I pray for you and put unity in your family and among the ladies important to you!! Send postive thoughts to your way.
