Day 34 - Celebrate Godliness

  • Comments 2

Well, I've been real behind in journaling, but I have been doing the Love Dares.  Needless to say this last week has been filled with two big back-to-back arguments.  It's been difficult to want to continue the LD and even more difficult to continue to show unconditional love, remain calm and bite my tongue.  I have accepted that things probably wont change this round of the LD.  It may be that we'll be separating soon which sucks.  She is being nastier than usual towards me and rejecting EVERYTHING.  Before, she'd only reject the things that she viewed as being "romantic". Now it's any and everything.  I'm sure this is because we are getting closer to a court hearing and separation.  However, in spite of my current feelings and her actions, I press forward.

Yesterday, I did day 34.  With things being so tense, I decided to send her a text to complete the dare.  I told her I was thankful for showing God's love towards me and my family during the deaths of two close family members in the last couple of years (one just a month ago).  She didn's respond to that, but instead responded with anger about some financial stuff regarding our separation.  I did my best to ensure her that I was praying and asking God for direction and wisdom.  The rest of the day was ok.  We didnt talk much more that day.

  • During this time she is feeling more  convicted.  and  calling vs texting will only add to the conviction.  

    She is going to throw what she can at you.  Keep biting your tongue.  

    When times are the toughest, God uses this season to strengthen your foundation in Him.  So, make sure you really lead your heart, do the dares the best you can, remain patient and kind in all things, and bite your tongue.  this  way you gain the most  growth.

    When the flesh doesn't want to, but you still follow God's will, things will happen in you.  For  God.  and this also opens the door more fully for Him to work in her.

  • Ditto to what Tim says. It does get harder before anything else. Rest assured that God is working on her. It's up to her to listen. It's also up to you to stay faithful to Him. Honoring your wife honors Him. No matter what she does.

    "Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered."

    1 Peter 3:7
