My husband has told me that he wants a divorce 4 days ago. I am now on day 3 of this dare. He was the one that bought the book and got to day 5 before he stopped. I then started a year later and did not make it all the way through. For the first 12 years of our marriage if we had a disagreement , he would become verbally abusive. He has in the past couple of years really improved this. Now , I am the one that if something is said- I get mad easily. He has tried but has given up. I realize now how far away from God I had become. He sees this as just a last ditch effort that won't last. I am praying for a miracle and believing for this miracle. I do not believe it is God's will for us to seperate. We have two school age children and this would be very difficult for them. Today I need to take home a gift. I am praying for God's strength since when he speaks to me now it is in a very short tone. He has demonstrated that he does not want to talk to me at all, He got very upset with me on day 1 when I told him that I did not want to seperate and asked for 40 days. Since that night it is very angry with me. I need to remember daily that this if to show my love for God.
I seen that you posted in the dare section as well. I replied to that post also.
Being far away from God. You took control back in your life. Now is the time to hand it all back over. You can see now that you, just like many of us here, cannot handle doing things our way. We need Christ to do it for us.
Yes and I can see now just how destructive this has been.
Thank you for sharing this. It gives me great encouragement and compels me to launch out into the 40 day love dare.
Your welcome Immanuel. I had to toally rely on God. As I went through each day, I relied on God. My husband seemed to grow more angry with each day. However, God was working. My husband told me after we were reconciled that on Day 10, as I came home from eating- he was tired and hungry. He had been working outside and as he heard me pull up- he thought- "ok - let's just see how much she has changed, let's see if she offers me something to eat." He said in about 2 seconds- he heard the door open and me tell him that I had some pizza if he would like some." God is so good.
