Collaborate without boundaries

Day 21

  • Comments 4

Did I think I would make it this far, no, but here I am. I was reading bible previously to this dare but now I have a new purpose and drive to find a closeness to God that cannot be changed. I love my spouse and want what is spoken about but I cannot change him, only God can. Patience is a hard one for me but I am learning.

  • Perseverance, my friend. Your comment about closeness reminds me of how the scripture says, "Draw near to Me and I will draw near to him". You are right. We can't change our spouses only God can do that. I think the longer we know and trust the Lord, patience grows. At least, that has been my experience. I will be honest with you trusting the Lord with my marriage is a whole different realm.

  • Keep with the dares and continue to  be molded by them.

  • Patience is terribly hard. My worst attribute by far... but this book and all the time I have spent in scripture has been invaluable to my problem with patience. I am a new person in Christ. Keep reading and studying God's word and keep doing the dares. You are about the same place I am in the book and I feel like a completely different person than I was 21 days ago. Pray for your husband and love him no matter what he says or does. Somewhere I read that being the recipient of unconditional love by another human is enlightening. As you get closer to God He will take care of you.

  • Thank you all as I have been trying to stay int he word more and more and it is showing not only in my marriage but also with my children.  I cannot believe what my life was like and how different I am now.  People at church can see how different we are in our relationship but can also see what is happening in my life as well.  God is so awesome in power that there are times I think wow from the beginning God knew I would be here and prepared all the people in my life to be right here.  If God can do all that how can I not trust him to do everything else, how foolish of me to think otherwise.  We all have to continue to read and just pray about how we can get closer to God and know that whatever God has planned for our lives he is preparing us for it right now.  That is hard for me to fathom but I know that God is in control.
