Day Eleven – The Love Dare: One Wife’s Journey

The scripture verse that touched me in particular today is – Ephesians 5:28

It’s true, Lord, that I would not cut off my hand if I broke it. Rather, I would seek the best medical care I could afford, just like today’s devotion spoke about. I don’t consider my marriage to be disposable. Sadly, I look at these passages and the challenges each day and discover that I do live this way. The sad part is that I don’t perceive that my husband does, and each day I long for him to do so a bit more. Please help me not to judge him, Lord. Instead, give me the strength and determination to really love unconditionally. And, instead of longing for my husband to love me like that, let me focus on how You fulfill me in those ways, giving me more than I could ever dream. In Christ’s name. Amen.

Love cherishes…
We should love each other as we do our own bodies! At least spouses should because we are one flesh! So, I won’t give up on my husband. I will keep after his bad habits because I want the best for him. I’ll do it without nagging, and that will be a challenge. But now, I need to go blow a kiss into his lunchbox.
