This was a tough dare, to say the least...as we are not living under the same roof.  I have had some contact with her in the last few days that has been good.  We are able to hold a conversation, they are short...but getting better everytime!  I had called her to see how she was doing earlier and let me know that she was ok and that she had been to the Dr. and that she had some up comming appointments.  I asked I could come with her to one of them inparticular, she said that she just has to find out when it is and she would let me know.   

 

 I got to the point of asking her if she would be interested in being intimate and the answer was "not tonight".  I was afraid of the answer I was going  to get.  Would I be mad, frustrated, upset, or ok with it.  Six months ago that would have irratated me alot.  But knowing that I am following God threw this journey and that he knows the way, I have complete faith in what HIS plan is.  He is the tour guide that we should all be bragging about!!

 

On a side not a saying popped in my head while writing this and it dawned on me that it was a bible verse....I can do everyting through him who gives me strength.  Phil. 4:13 NIV.  Not sure why it did but it spoke to me in a powerful way, I felt a wave come over me.  It was amazing!!

  • Those moments are amazing, when something we already knew or  have heard previously take on a larger or  newer meaning to us.  It's tough to  explain that to others, but God hits us now and then with the old  teaching us something new.

  • You asked and she said she would let you know. Wait for her response. Don't pester her. Give her space and let her make a decision. She knows you are interested in going so you did your part. Just make sure you pray for her health and safety at the doctor.

    You asked to be intimate. It's your right, just don't be pushy. The Bible says husband and wife are to not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. (1 Corinthians 7:5) Just don't get frustrated. She is not in a place to understand this right now. Be strong for her and be there when she needs you.

    Philippians 4:13 is a very powerful verse but you have to give everything to God. If you do He will bless you beyond your wildest dreams.
