Collaborate without boundaries

Day 23

  • Comments 3

Today was the more difficult days for me to contemplate. I sat for a long while thinking 'what is hindering my relationship?' I behanbto ask God what is it that I need to get in check? It hit like a ton of bricks. I invest so much time in our children that I forget about us. Children are amazing but I have placed their needs and wants way above all else. They are now at an age where I can let go and let them fly on their own for a few things. This freed up so much time yesterday that my husband asked what I was thinking about. In reality I was not thinking I was just enjoying being there. I told him I am thinking of nothing just happy to be right here. Of course he repeated to me you will just wait until we are trying to go to bed to talk. He was in utter disbelief that I was just content to be quiet.  This is a new look about life that I am unusually comfortable about, I have time to think, do and just be. These days aren't easier than before it is just I have a different outlook now. I will prepare for Satan to attack by reading and praying. It will happen and if I become lazy I will not be ready.

 

  • I too put our children way above my wife. After studying the Bible recently I realize that I actually had them idolized even above God. I have since put my priorities straight with God at the top, my wife way below that and our children right below her. I know now that everything will fall into place as God's will is done and it gives me a comforting peace to just think about that. And let me tell you, the devil hates that!

    "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour."

    1 Peter 5:8

  • The contentment in Christ is visible to your husband.  Now, it nay be tempting to show unity when he shows frustration and anger at work, erc, for you to watch his negative attitude.  But don't.

  • Switch the word watch with the word match.  Sorry.
