4 – Day 10 – Love is Unconditional
“Do something out of the ordinary today
for your spouse - something that proves (to you and to them) that your love is
based on your choice and nothing else. Demonstrate love to them for the
sheer joy of being their partner in marriage.”
believe Christ blessed me with a quick answer to today’s dare since the time
with my husband was very minimal due to my surgery. Our interaction this
morning, for the hour we saw each other before he left for work, was positive.
Once he left, I packed up my stuff to stay at my parents for the next couple of
days and prayed for assurance on the dare. He was stronger than what I’ve been
feeling Him lately. I was to leave the letter I wrote for him on last round’s
dare 39. I’ve been holding onto it, praying for guidance everyday on when and
how to give it to him. I was led to his office and put it under a shirt he had
lying on his chair.
went smoothly. Once I got settled at my parents I texted my husband letting him
know it went well. We chatted for a couple of minutes. I asked him how court
went. The gal on trial ended up entering into a deferral, which means he didn’t
have to testify, so there was no point in him going. He wasn’t too happy about
it because he could have then helped me out. I told him I appreciated the
thought. Once the pain meds kicked into gear I was knocked out for awhile.
this evening I was talking to a friend and it came to light that perhaps the
warfare I/we are experiencing is due to the increase in prayer for our spouses.
I have been praying for my eyes to open to whatever it is that is causing me
not to feel Him like I used to. I have never thought about the reason being due
to praying for my husband more. It is more constant throughout the day since my
husband has returned home. I’ve been praying more than just His will and my
husband’s heart to soften for Christ, but also consistently for his own
strength, wisdom, peace, comfort, and the anger to subside. In addition, I’ve
started reading the Power of a Praying Wife.
received a text message later on from my husband, “Thank you for the note. That
was very nice.” I replied back, “You’re welcome.” All the glory goes to Him! It
was His words in that letter not mine.
Wonderful! Love this. Love this.
The first prayer in PPW, asking Him to make you a better wife,....ooooooooo...tears every time. I read it aloud so I HEAR it . I NEED to hear it so I humble my righteous self, if ya know what I mean. "Please Lord, humble this Queen Bee who thinks she is your sweetest honey!" LOL
Oh, yes...always a work in progress. Talk about sass... ;)
Glad the surgery went well. Stay strong. You might be at war now, but He will protect you. I keep thinking back to "footprints" when you think you are walking alone.... He is actually carrying you!
Christ can also be showing you more how tonleadnyour heart by the interest not being there.
I believe there is a reason why your husband and you are physically separated at this time.....
You have been given more time.....more time for Him.....
Praise GOD your husband wanted to be there for you but had that trial to deal with. WOW very interesting observation from your friend. Yes Satan does not like us praying so he might be trying extra hard to get to you. Don't let him win! Fight him with prayer and God's word.
How is the Power of the Praying Wife? I was thinking about getting that book.
Yay! Praise GOD your husband got the note and thanked you. GOD is good.......all the time!
Hope you heal and recover and are comforted by GOD's love, peace and strength.
