After a year and a half of stopping , (I had given birth to my first born child and it was just too much at the time), I thought I'd give things a go again, since many many things have happened , and I still want to save my relationship. Today I had to be patient with my partner, which is funny because of course something that greatly tested my patience happened. I had to drive an hour and a half away to take care of a legal issue , with my son. The drive was long, my son was cranky , I hadn't eaten, you get the picture. I finally get back to my county and when I'm half way to his house to drop my son to him before work , I find out he isn't even home, he was already at work .... of course this REALLY irked me considered he said nothing , and it felt like I'd been driving for days. The good Lord himself knows I tried to be patience but couldn't help but give off an attitude . He of course got wind of it , and we briefly let each other have it. I wouldn't say it was a big deal, but after I dropped the baby off and was half way to work , he apologized and I did too. And we went along having an ok day. I'm not sure if I fulfilled this challenge as I should of , but I need to work on my patience with him and reassure that not everything is that big of a deal...
Welcome. Realize this will be a journey between you and Christ, not you and him. He will be used as a tool to mold you. Do a dare a day, no more, no less. Do not change the dares to make them easy. Do it the dare in person if you are suppose to, not a text or phone call. Do not read ahead other than the appendix, especially leading the heart. There are one or two dares that you should not complete, they are reserved for married couples.
It often gets worse before it gets better. But do not worry about that. And have no expectations of him when you do the dares.
Haha...I think this journey has revealed to most of us that patience is something we all need to work on daily! :) That and trusting in God's timing and His will for us.
