How blessed is the man who finds
wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.
Prepare a special dinner at home, just for the two of
you. The dinner can be as nice as you
prefer. Focus this time on getting to
know your spouse better, perhaps in areas you've rarely talked about. Determine to make it an enjoyable evening for
you and your mate.
the day I prayed on a few things, but particularly the dare. Hubby and I never
get to eat alone. The kids and my mom is always with us. I make dinner every
night, but I tried to make something my husband would really like. When he goes
for seconds I know I succeeded and so he did!
I knew from
early in the morning that we would not be able to discuss a whole lot of things
at dinner time, so after praying about it a lot, I got, “Be Still” and listen.
So I did.
Hubby and I
did not have much contact during the day, because he is still driving his boss
around to meetings etc, for the wholesale, but the contact we did have, hubby
mentioned, that the boss was here for a week and he only had one appointment
booked. Hubby expressed how he would like for them to be able to see a lot more
people during this week to try and get the wholesale side of the business of
the ground. That was it!
I had worked
in the furniture business for almost 10 years before I started with this mining
company in January and I had a lot of contacts. Directors that resigned and
started their own furniture companies etc. So I quickly went onto Facebook and
also checked my phone, and got together about 10 companies that they could
contact for appointments. I Skype’d all the info to hubby and when he came
online he said “thanks so much love, great info”.
So I was
able to listen and recognise what my husband needed and then take action to
provide him with the tools to achieve what he longed to do. It felt so
rewarding. So now, even when we do not have time to talk alone, I will pray on
it daily that God will open my eyes and ears to recognise small or big things
in my husband’s life that I can help with.

trains me for battle,
so that I
can use the strongest bow.
scripture made me think about a lot of friends here on the love dare who is
going through a struggle at the moment with a lot of “why’s”…. verse 34 sums it
up. He trains us for Battle, so that we can use the strongest bow. I will save
this verse in my heart, because the challenges will come and then I need to
remember, instead of asking why, God is training me for battle!
Thank you Peaches! That is a great reminder that He is always training us and we will have the strongest bow to use in our battles. Love it!
Praise God for your intuition to make your hubby his favorite food and also for helping him with his job. Thank you so much for sharing those verses. I especially liked the last one about his training us for battle so we will use the best bow. Makes me think about how we have to face and go through these challenges so we can grow in our faith and grow closer to God.
God is training you to be a testimony through those battles!
