Collaborate without boundaries

Day 1 - Love is Patient

  • Comments 1

Did anything happen today to cause anger towards your spouse? Were you tempted to think disapproving thoughts and to let them come out in words?

Overall, this dare was easy for me, because my husband has moved out and won't really speak to me. So I don't really have the opportunity to even say things out of anger.

The things that made me angry today:

- No response to my good morning text, but he does read them everyday even though he already knows what it's going to say.

- I'm angry that I have to do everything alone, even something as simple as buying a birthday gift for a family member. I usually do most of the gift shopping, but I run ideas by him to see if he thinks it's a good choice or not. It felt really lonely to not have that.

- I'm angry that I still don't even know what went wrong in our marriage.

While I did have disapproving thoughts, I do think I would have been able to hold my tongue on these issues even if I had the opportunity to speak to him. While spending time in prayer today, I wondered "Did I become so focused on our future that I forgot to live in the moment?" I will have to pray more about this.

  • Welcome.  Look at this as a journey between you and Christ, not you and your husband.  He will be used as a tool to mold you.  do a  dare a day, no more, no less.  Such as texting so much.  Because these texts are getting in his  space.  

    And have no expectations from him when you do the dares.  Do not manipulate the dares to make them easier.  do them as they are intended to be done.  Do not read ahead in the book other than the appendix, especially about leading the heart.  

    Things may get worse before it gets better, but do not fear this.  It will serve purpose.
