Love Believes the Best

  • Comments 2

For today's dare I had to make a list of positive and negative things about my husband. The positive list was much harder during this round. I still have positive thoughts about him, but most of them are how he used to be, not how he is now. He is not acting like the man I married. The negative list was still not particularly easy, because I've worked on forgiving him for past hurts so I don't like to dwell on them. 

At my counseling session today, we worked on forgiving him for all of the hurt, pain, and negative feelings that he has caused, and releasing them to God. That was a tough, but rewarding session. 

I've been going through all of the divorce paperwork. I made an appointment with a document preparer to help me write up my response. Either way, the divorce will provide to trial. (Unless God changes my husband mind.) To avoid a trial, I would have to sign papers that say I believe the marriage is irretrievably broken. I will never be able to say that. I am still praying that God will work in his heart and change his mind. I know that God's desire is for marriages to last. I know that He is in control of everything. I am only a tool in his plan.

  • Don't lose sight in this time where he isn't acting like the same man he was that the old him  is still in there, and if he uses his free will correctly, the old him can evolve in a better him.  

  • God does desire marriage to last and a marriage is never irretrievable broken. If both people are willing any marriage can be fixed. There are way too many success stories out there to prove that. Keep your sight on God. Imagine that crown you will get in heaven for staying the course and obeying God.

    "Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life."

    Revelation 2:10
