Dare 25

WHATEVER YOU HAVEN'T FORGIVEN IN YOUR MATE, FORIVE IT TODAY.
LET IT GO. JUST AS WE ASK jESUS TO FOR GIVE US OUR DEBTS EACH DAY, WE MUST ASK HIM TO HEL US AS WELL. UNFORGIVENESS HAS BEEN KEEPING YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE IN PRISON TOO LONG. SAY FROM YOUR HEART, "ICHOOSE TO FORGIVE."

This is very impritant to our marriages we must pray daily over our marriages
and oever our hearts. May you know that God is there with you, and He will
guide you through andy and everything. My prayer is you will hold on to
your marriage and let the Holy Spirit teach you how to love your spouse.


LOVE vs LUST DAY 24

THE WORLD IS PASSING AWAY, AND ALSO ITS LUSTS;
BUT THE ONE WHO DOES THE WILL OF GOD LIVES FOREVERY.
1 JOHN 2:17


TODAYS DARE

END IT NOW.IDENTYFIY EVERY OBJECT OF LUST IN YOUR LIVE
AND RMOVE IT. SINGLE OUT EVERY LIE YOU'VE SWALLOWED IN
PURSUING FORBIDDEN PLEASURE AND REJECT IT.
LUST CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO LIVE IN A BACK BEDROOOM. IT
MUST BE KILLED AND DESTROYED-----TODAY----AND REPLACED
WITH THE SURE PROMISES OF GOD AND A HEART FILLED WITH HIS
PERFECT LOVE.

DAY 23

LOVE ALWAYS PROTECTS

[LOVE] ALWAYS PROTECTS.----1CORINTHIANS 13:7 NIV


WIVES YOU HAVE A ROLE AS PROTECTOR IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
YOU MUST GUARD YOUR HEART FROM BEING LED AWAY BY NOVELS,
MAGAZINES, AND OTHER FORMS OF ENTERTAINMENT THAT BLUR YOUR
PERCEPTION OF REALITY AND PUTTING UNFAIR EXPECTIONS ON YOUR
HUSBAND. INSTEAD YOU MUST DO YOUR PART IN HELPING HIM FEEL STRONG,
WHILE ALSO AVOID TALK-SHOWS THAT CAN LURE YOUR ATTENTION AWAY
FROM YOUR FAMILY. "THE WISE WOMAN BUILDS HER HOUSE, BUT THE FOOLISH TEARS IT DOWN WITH HER OWN HANDS" PROVERBS 14:1

MEN---YOU ARE THE HEAD OF YOUR HOME. YOU ARE THE ONE RESPONSIBLE
BEFORE GOD FOR GUARDING THE GATE AND STANDING YOUR GROUND AGAINST ANYTHINGTHAT WOULD THREATEN YOU WIFE OR MARRIAGE. THIS IS NO SMALL
ASIGNMENT. IT REQUIRES A HEAT OF COURAGE AND A HEAD FOR PREEMPTIVE
ACTION. JESUS SAND, "IF THE THIEF WAS COMING, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ON
THE ALERT AND WOULD NOT HAVE ALLOWED HIS HOUSE TO BE BROKEN INTO"
MATTHEW 24:43
THIS ROLE IS YOURS. TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.

THIS IS YOUR DARE FOR TODAY AND EVERYDAY

GOD IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN TEACH US HOW TO LOVE UNSELFISHLY, TURE LOVE IS LONGSUFFERING, AND PATIENT AND KIND EVEN WHEN THE OTHER DOES
NOT DESERVE IT. CHRIST LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HE GAVE HIS LIFE SO THAT WE MIGHT LIVE. SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO GO THE EXTRA MILE FOR OUR SPOUSE, SO THAT GOD WILL GET THE GLORY. emoticon

Todays Dare

LOVE IS A CHOICE, NOT A FEELING. IT IS AN
INITIATED ACTION, NOT A KNEE-JERK REATION.
CHOOSE TODAY TO BE COMMITTED TO LOVE
EVENIF YOUR SPOUSE HAS LOST MOST OF
THEIR INTEREST IN RECEIVING IT. SAY TO
THEM TODAY IN WORDS SIMILAR TO THESE,
"I LOVE OU. PERIOD. i CHOOSE TO LOVE YOU
EVEN IF YOU DON'T LOVE ME IN RETURN.

WHY IS THIS KIND OF LOVE IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT
THE LOVE OF CHRIST IN YOUR HEART?

HOW DOES HIS PRESENCE WITHIN YOU ENABLE
YOU TO LOVE, EVEN WHEN IT'S PRIMARILY ONE-
SIDED?

Look back over the dares from previous days.
were there some that seemed impossible to
You? Have you realized your need for God to
change your heart and to give you the ability
to love? Ask Him to show you where you
stand with Him, and ask for the strength and
grace to settle your eternal sestination.

IT MAY BE HOLDING THE DOOR FOR HER. IT MAY BE PUTTING

This is a very good one for me. Today I had a spark friend tell me that she did not like my spark page. What I have on my page, she feels, is cramping my beliefs down her throat. I did not say anything to her because she blocked me and told me she would not read thing I write. So I am praying for her and I feel I would rather be left with no friends than reject our Lord.

Well, I posted this on a team I belong to. I got a message about having a "down attitude" and needing to be gentle. I do not understand why this message. I have no ill feelings against this person, I did not speak unkindly to her and I did not slander her name. I just shared an experience.

But I have to let it go of how the remarks have made me feel. However, I did learn something,next time I will not chose to post something of this nature on that team. Perhaps that it what I was to learn.

Fortunately I did get a message back, and I now understand a lot. Sometimes
people get so busy trying to make a point of what they are saying that they forget the person they are responding to. Well, I am learning a much different lesson--acceptance & forgiveness, however most of all, God softening my heart.

Yes, I had a good cry--when I realized my fault and how much God loved me by allowing me to come to the realizarion. What an awesome Father.

DAY 14

LOVE TAKES DELIGHT

ENJOY LIFE WITH THE WIFE YOU LOVE ALL
THE DAYS OF YOU FLEETING LIFE. ECCLESIASTES 3:3

ONE OF THE THINGS WE ARE LEARNING ABOUT THE
LOVE DARE JOURNEY IS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT JUST
FOLLOW YOUR HEART. YOU SHOULD LEAD IT. WE DON'T
LET OUR FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS DO THE DRIVING. YOU
PUT THEM BACK IN THE BACKSEAT AND TELL THEM WHERE
YOU ARE GONG.

TODAY'S DARE MAY BE DIRECTION YOU TO A REAL AND RADICAL CHANGE
OF HEART. FOR DOME, THE MOVE TOWARDS DELIGHT MAYBE ONLY A
SMALL STEP AWAY. FOR OTHERS, IT MAY REQUIRE A GIANT LEAP FROM
ONGOING DISGUST.

TODAY'S DARE

PURPOSEFULLY NEGLECT AN ACTIVITY YOU WOULD NORMALLY DO
SO YOU CAN SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH YOUR SPOUSE. DO SOMETHING
HE OR SHE WOULD LOVE TO DO OR A PROJECT THEY'D REALLY LIKE
TO WORK ON. JUST BE TOGETHER

AND TELL US HOW DID YOU DO AND WHAT WAS THE RESPONSE. emoticon

I so need help in remembering God wills us to learn to bear one another's burdens. No one is without faults, no one without a cross, no one self-sufficient and no one wise enough all alone. Therefore, we must support, comfort and assist one another and good for the good in one another.

Talk with your spouse about establishing healthy rules of
engagement. if your mate is. not ready for this, then write
out your own personal rule to "'fight" by. Resolve to abide
by them when the next disagreement occurs.

Anytime hubby and I get just a little heated, which we
don't argue because we stop and pray I have learn that I
don't have to have my way. my husband is so sweet.

Yes, the more I make time for our Lord and spend time with Him and His Word, I can sincerely feel His love flowing from me to my husband. I have a different attitude, patience, tolerance, and acceptance.

When I seek our Lord first and make Him my top propriety things fall into place.

When we as wives change the atmosphere it makes our husbands feel appreciated.

FROM THE LOVE DARE DEVOTIONAL:

LOVE IS MOST WHEN GOD IS FIRST

BY THIS WE KNOW THAT WE LOVE THE CHILDREN OF GOD,
WHEN WE LOVE GOD AND OBSERVE HIS COMMANDMENTS.
1 JOHN 5:1-2 NASB

KEEPING GOD FIRST BLESSES YOUR MARRIAGE MORE THAN ANY OTHER
PRACTICE. EVERYTHING IN LIFE TAKES ON A NEW MEANING WHEN IT BECOMES
AN INSTRUMENT FOR YOU TO LIVE OUT YOUR LOVE FOR GOD.

D AY 10 LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL

GOD DEMONSTRATED HIS OWN LOVE TOWARD YOU, IN THAT
WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.
ROMANS 5:8 emoticon


IF SOMEONE WERE TO ASK YOU WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR
SPOUSE, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

TODAY'S DARE

DO SOMETHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY TODAY FOR YOUR
SPOUSE, SOMETHING THAT PROVES (TO YOU AND TO THEM)
THAT YOUR LOVE IS BASED ON YOUR CHOICE AND NOTHING
ELSE. WASH THEIR CAR, CLEAN THEIR CLOSET. DEMONSTRATE
LOVE TO THEM FOR THE SHEER JOY OF BEING THEIR PARTNER
IN MARRIAGE. emoticon

Amen!!! we give God the praise! I am so Happy for you.

I got home form work it was my long day to work, and I was tired, but when
I got to the bedroom there was a large bag on the door, there was a not saying
that the Lord lead him to do this for me and that he loved me. I was so blown away
and surprised. He just blessed me with an early anniversary gift a beautiful set of
rings. we both are working on spending time with each and encouraging each other.
God is so good!!

will our next Dare Tomorrow.

LOVE IS NOT RUDE emoticon

HE WHO BLESSES HIS FRIEND WITH A LOUD VOICES EARLY IN THE MORNING
IT WILL BE RECKONED A CURSE TO HIM. PROVERBS 27:14 emoticon

REMEMBER, NOTHING IRRITATES OTHERS AS QUICKLY AS BEING RUDE.
AND AS ALWAYS LOVE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THIS. WHEN WE
ARE DRIVEN BY LOVE WE BEHAVE IN A WAY THAT'S MORE PLEASANT FOR
SPOUSE. emoticon


DARE 5

ASK YOUR SPOUSE TO TELL YOU THREE THINGS
THAT CAUSE HIM OR HER TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE
OR IRRITATED WITH YOU. YOU MUST DO SO WITHOUT
ATTACKING THEM OR JUSTIFYING YOUR BEHAVIOR
THIS IS FORM THEIR PERSPECTIVE ONLY. emoticon

HWO VASR IS THE SUN OF THEM!IF I SHOULD COUNT THEM,
THEY WOULD OUTNUMBER THE SAND.------Ps 139:17*18

DAY. HAVE NO AGENDA OTHER THAN ASKING HOW HE OR SHE
IS DOING AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU CAN DO FOR THEM.

Here is my prayer today:

Lord Jesus, grant that I and my spouse may have a true and understanding love for each other. Grant that we may both be filled with faith and trust. Give us the grace to live with each other in peace and harmony. May we always bear with one another's weaknesses and grow from each other's strengths. Help us to forgive one another's failings and grant us patience, kindness, cheerfulness, and the spirit of placing the well-being of one another ahead of self.

May the love that brought us together grow and mature with each passing year. Bring us both ever closer to You through our love for each other. Let our love grow to perfection. Amen

Dare 3

Whatever you put your time, energy,and money
into will become more important to you. it's hard
to care for something you are not investing in.
Along with restraining form negative comments,
buy your spouse something that says, "I was
thinking of you today." emoticon

Read 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Love is Patient

Ge completely humble and gentle, be patient
bearing with one another in love. ----Ephesians 4:2


Love works. It is life's most powerful motivator and has far greater depth
and meaning than most people realize.

Today's Dare

DEMONSTRATE PATIENCE AND TO SAY NOTHING NEGATIVE TO
YOUR SPOUSE AT ALL. IF THE TEMPTATION ARISES, CHOOSE
NOT TO SAY ANYTHING. REMEMBER IT IS BETTER TO HOLD YOUR TONGUE
THAN TO SAY SOMETHING YOU WILL REGRET.

WHEN YOU HAVE DONE THIS PLACE A emoticon AND TELL US
HOW YOU DID!
