Considering my husband and I still aren't talking, this dare was going to be especially trying for me. He left for work late last night after our daughters were in bed and will be there until tomorrow morning (he's a fire fighter, so he's gone at least 24 hours at a time.) All the way to work this morning I prayed about how God was going to have me handle this. Should I follow through with the dare or just skip it?!?
When I arrived at work, I knew exactly what I needed to do. As soon as I pulled into my parking spot, I got out my phone and sent him a text to wish him good morning and to tell him I hope that he has a good day. I also told him that he was on my mind this morning. I didn't follow through exactly as the dare was presented, but I felt this was the best way to handle it since we aren't on speaking terms. I knew I wouldn't get a response from him, but I just wanted him to know that I was thinking about him.
About thirty minutes had passed since I sent the text and I had actually forgotten about sending it to him as I had gotten busy with my work. My phone buzzed and I looked down to see that there was a text from him. (Seeing his name and the little fire truck beside it always makes me giddy like a teenager, even when I'm upset with him). I was hesitant to open it and waited until it was about to disappear from the screen and opened it. To my surprise, he had responded back with "morning..." (which is his usual way of saying good morning to me) and told me thank you and that he hoped I have a good day, too.
I haven't talked to him any more today, but I'm ok with that. I have a sense of peace that we are at least communicating (even as minimal as it is) and letting each other know that we are thinking about the other.
Dont skip dares. Pray on them. The Lord will open up some way for you to complete them.
You are on day 4 and on here, so you probably already know this is between you and Christ, not you and your spouse. The response your husband gives you, no matter what it is, is not important other than to show you things about your relationship with Christ. Keep your faith in Him and youll feel love like no other.
You must trust Christ in doing the dares as thy are intended. Doing it your way defeats the whole purpose. And shows you are still in control when Christ should be.
It really helps me to pray and ask God for the strength and ability to complete the dare. Then I put my trust in him and he always helps me and makes it happen! Focus on God! Don't worry about your husband. I know easier said then done but you can do it. Just talk to God every step of the way.
