4 – Day 14 – Love Takes Delight
neglect an activity you would normally do so you can spend quality time with
your spouse. Do something he or she would love to do or a project they'd
really like to work on. Just be together.”
very fitting chapter to read again after the conversation my brother and I had
yesterday along with the challenge he gave me. I have been praying for His love
to truly shine through me for my husband whether I “love” where he is at or
not, it does not matter because I remind myself Christ loves His children where
they are at. He is still working on moving mountains (my husband, I, and my
did what I could with the massive lack of energy I still had while my husband
was at work (laundry and bills), so when he got home I could spend time with
him. I got about 20 minutes with him before he went to play video games. It is
better than none and I know I am not the liveliest person right now.
fall asleep reminiscing over the last few days about how grateful I am for the
time I got at my parents with their care and time with Him. I miss it already.
What do you love about your husband?
Hes right there with you, and you know it.......
Dont miss it,.....find it there....
You got 20 minutes....that was alot more than youve had over the past few days...
Lead that heart of yours....
Praise God for the time you got with your husband. Lead your heart. Meet him where he's at. You did it! Makes me think about this verse .....“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” (Matthew 17:20 NLT). You mentioned mountains in your post so it led me to this verse. It's such an incredible reminder of what is possible with God!
Try something. When he is playing video games, sit in the same room for a little while. Heck do your Bible reading while he plays. Do something to initiate togetherness. Remember he is the one now lost!
Are you missing your time with your parents or are you missing time away from your husband? God is always with you, so what is lacking? You are on round 4 of this dare! Your perseverance has paid off, your husband has moved back in by the grace of God, yet, now you are wanting time away?! Round 4 Jenn! God wants you to also want your husband! You are growing daily with Him, but how are you really with hubby?
Wow so much being thrown at you here huh Jenn? Is it overwhelming? With all the statements being made, is it hard to look at them positively? I hope and pray that you are! Take Libby's question. Pick one thing you absolutely love about him. Let it crack that smile. Its like the flower blossoming. Which supports HK's verse does it not? Which would lead into what Sean suggests to just BE with him. In turn would support the growth with your husband. How long does it take a seed to bloom? I mean from breaking ground to a flower beaming in the sun!
