The husband must fulfil his duty
to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband.
—1 Corinthians 7:3
If at all possible, try to initiate sex with your husband or
wife today. Do this in a way that honours
what your spouse has told you (or implied to you) about what they need from you
sexually. Ask God to make this enjoyable
for both of you as well as a path to greater intimacy.
I was very nervous about today’s dare. Especially since the
last conversation we had about intimacy I was left feeling dirty and perverted.
We had not been intimate in a while as I leave the choice up to hubby for when
he feels like it.
I prayed about it constantly throughout the day and God made
sure I had enough to do to keep my mind off of it. I enjoyed being busy at
work, hubby and I chatted about the kids a bit. He had to get up earlier than
normal because he told our son he would take him and his sister to school!
Bless, and so he did. Our boy really enjoyed it and I also thanked hubby that I
appreciated that he did it and it also gave me time to do some washing in the
morning, rather than leaving everything for the evening.
Hubby phoned during the day to ask if I could pick up the
kids, he was running late. I explained that I had to go into town for a
meeting, but as soon as I’m done I’ll phone him and we can see who is where and
arrange picking up the kids. When I arrived at my meeting hubby let me know he
was leaving work. After my meeting, I phoned him he had just picked up our
daughter. I said that I would pick up our son, then we’ll be home more or less
the same time. He agreed.
After I picked up our son, I went to the vet to get dog food
(hubby mentioned yesterday that he took out the last), I stopped by the bakery
for a cake for school tomorrow and also for some juice for the school party.
When we got home, hubby and our daughter were already there. He helped me
unload the car, and thanked me for getting the dog food.
My mom suggested that we go out for supper, since tomorrow
evening all the friends and family will probably come to wish our son a happy
Birthday. We agreed and we all went out for supper. The kids enjoyed it so much
and even got their faces painted. Supper was my mom’s treat to us and I made
sure I thanked her properly for it.
At home, we bathed the kids & got them in bed, had our
family bible & prayer time again. When hubby and I went to bed we had our
prayer and devotion again. I prayed again on guidance for today’s dare, and for
Christ to take this “fear” away from me.
He calmed me and gave me the courage to complete the dare.
It was received well by hubby and all the fear and doubts faded away. Praise
In the morning, when we got up, hubby asked how I was doing,
I responded with “tired” he teased me and said, “well it is your fault we are
tired”, but he pulled me closer hugged me.
All the glory to Christ our Lord!
My word for today:
11 As bad as you are, you know how to give good
things to your children. How much more, then, will your Father in heaven give
good things to those who ask Him!
Funny how the foolish things we worry about, but yet when we trust in the Lord it is all fine!
Praise GOD! He always gives us what we need doesn't he? We simply have to trust him! I read some things lately about how if we have fears it's OK......just go ahead and do it afraid.! GOD will provide us with the strength and ability to do anything.
FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real.
So glad you worked your way through it by putting your faith in Him. The reward was sweet!
