Collaborate without boundaries

Day 36

  • Comments 5

I should have written this last night but I almost went to the hospital. I am so sick it's crazy to just try and breath. My spouse is helping me to feel better which is odd but I will take it. Of course he had to speak cryptic yesterday evening and I was like what I am sick. So he stopped and just went on. I read the dare and know I am reading everyday but my spouse is unwilling so I will continue on and look for God in everyway.

  • Sorry, I often get each person's back story mixed up.  But, it sounds like you are doing the dares together.  or that you have expectations of him doing the dares. If so, this expectation of him has got to stop.  Forget he even knows about the dares.  This is your journey, not his.  I would highly suggest doing a round two.  

    It's tough struggling to breathe.  HOpe and praying you feel better.  

  • I apologize if I am assuming wrongly about him doing the dares also.  I know I come across rudely often.  That is never my intent to anyone.  

  • He doesn't know about the dares but I did ask if he would read with me as the dare suggested. We are both still going to church and the class suggested it as well. Never feel as though it is rude, I often feel the same. My spouse is open to nothing Godly that I might suggest so I let God infuse the moment when needed and by whomever. I cannot wait on my spouse, or wait when all is better to follow God. I know this will take a 2nd round as I am just learning about me a little this time arpund, think about the next time.

  • Sorry, after I got off the site, I thought, I bet she is talking doing the dare, not reading the dares together.  That's impressive doing the dares and not able to breath.  Make sure you get medical help if things stay bad.  

  • My wife is completely unwilling to do anything also. All I do is complete the dare and learn from it. I asked her to read the Bible with me and there's always and excuse. For the last couple nights I've asked her to pray with me and there's another excuse. Last night it was "I'm honestly exhausted and still have charting for work to do." Then she starts telling me about her day. She acts like we are really good friends but she ignores God, which is really aggravating to me. Sounds like your situation is similar. I really don't know what to suggest because I feel your frustration. All we can do is read and study God's word. If our spouses choose to disobey God and leave that's on them. They have to answer to God some day. We will too but we will have favor in his eyes if we remain true to Him.

    "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, ... "
