I am still struggling with letting go and not contacting Isaac at all outside the dares. He came by on Tuesday night after I took my daughter swimming and she wanted us to do prayer and bedtime together. We had a lot of laughs and enjoyed our time. We did prayer and devotional and it was really good time and without knowing what the next two devotionals were I expressed to him that I would love to do them on a more consistent basis. Our devotionals have been deeper and more intimate than any previous.  He stated that he couldn't guarantee that we would do them every night because he is realizing how much alone time he really needs but that he would try to do it more. Wednesday we did not speak at all as God clearly as told me that I need to let him come to me. Yesterday I had some anxiety and even though God clearly told me to trust Him and let Isaac come to me I ended up calling Isaac anyway rationalizing it was for my Love Dare. He didn't answer and later called me back. He did say he was planning on calling me to do devotional and prayer that night. My choice in disobedience didn't allow God to work to increase my faith. I am thankful that God is a God of many chances. I am going to continue on my path of not contacting Isaac and letting him come to me. Today's dare of praying daily has already been asked of him and I feel I need to let it go. Last night we continued to have deep & intimate conversation & prayer. I pray this continues.

  • I am so proud of you!  I know when it was first put on my heart not to reach out, I couldn't obey.  I am getting better, but still struggle with it hourly.  I both miss my wife, and my controlling side wants to keep her engaged with me, so she doesn't find something better, or something more fun.  I know that God is putting it on me to limit my out reach to the dares and our daughter because of the controlling side that needs to be removed from me.  I will pray for you and Isaac, and am so happy for you that he has agreed to do devotions and prayer with you.  My wife talks about loving Christ, and trusting Christ, but many times it seems like the faith is like mine once was.  Shallow, and in catch phrase only.  Knowing that God loves you and that your saved, but not living it, not digging into the word, and not letting him lead you.  It is hard for me not to send scripture or other things to try and direct her faith.  I pray that God sends someone who she will receive it from.

  • That's terrific he is open to prayer and devotional and doing this with you.

    If you feel you were led to the dares by Christ, then you need to do the dares as intended, without changing or skipping or manipulating them.  

    It may have felt you already did the dare about prayer, but God could have very easily lined the timing for this dare to come up at this point to see if you trust Him enough to do the dare anyway, vs going with your feelings and choosing to take control instead of leaving the control in His hands.  

    Each time you take control, such as contacting him outside the dares, things have a way of not working out as well as if you do a dare a day, no more, no less, and leave it in His more than capable hands.
