Day 31 Love and Marriage

  • Comments 5

Todays Dare was to tell you spouse of an person/relationship you may have not have left. Spouse are to be put first. So, I called and talked to my husband a few minutes ago. I told him I have been praying and God showed me how I would put other people before him. Not giving us to create oneness. I apoligized and told him I commit to him and to God to make our marriage the top priority over every other human relationship (how to read that part out of the book I was nervous I may forget something). Anyhow, I said, "Okay?" He responded, "I don't know what to tell ya". (I felt negativity). So, I said , Well, I just wanted to share that with you". He responded, "Okay". We hung up.

I am in faith choosing not to have any expectations from my husband regarding the phone conversation. I don't feel peace at all....I feel kinda now, God I choose to give it to you. I was obedient in the Dare which is my obedience to you. I choose peace and joy and let go of the yuckiness. I need to thank you Lord that my husband has been answering the phone lately when I call versus him not answering before and all I could do was leave messages.

  • Find joy in the little things! He took your call! That is a big win, especially if it was something that wasn't happening before. It is difficult for our spouses to see us change and believe it's real. You told him you were going to put him first, now you get the opportunity to show him that you meant it. God will use this to work in him, but it may take time.

  • omj,

    Thank you for the encouragement. I really needed it tonight. You are right. I need to find joy in the little things.

  • He answered the call, even though he probably knew you were going to bring up in some way your love for him.  and he still answered, a successful step for him. Thank God.  

    the yuckiness, part of that is probably holding on to expectations of him responding to this dare.  Let no one of this earth lead you to feel anything not of God.  But it is so easy to do.  But you did what you should, turn to God with it.  

    Be in His peace, you did the dare.  you left it for God to deal with, what more can be expected of you in this dare? Nothing I can think of.  Be in peace, He is offering it to you now.  

  • I dont think he was being negative, he just had no response.  How can he really respond to that right now, at least in words, it would be difficult for him to do so.  But the thing is, you left it in such a way that God is steps closer to him now.  That's what counts.  not his goofy response.  The Holy Spirit has to be whispering to him wake up goofball and see what you are missing, God and your wife of Christ.

  • Tim,

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
