Day 39...... WOW

Can you believe on day 39 already ??? I dont know if I want to be done ironic I know I remember first starting this and not wanting to continue and now my friend's I dont want it to end.
Love Endures-
"Love never fails." 1Corinthians 13:8
As the devotion says ,"Of all the things love dares to do this is the ultimate.
Though thretened, it keeps pursuing. Though challenged, it keeps moving forward. Though mistreated and rejected, it refuses to give up. Love never fails.
Often when marriages are in crises we want to give up especially when our spouse seems to not budge .
LOVE if it is REALLY LOVE doesnt waffle when it's not received the way we want it to be received. If love can be told to Quit loving, then it is not really Love at all. Love that is from God is unending and unstoppable. If the other party doesn't choose to receive it, love keeps giving anyway.
Love Never Fails......................
Jesus ' love for us is unconditional and this is how we are to Love ALL THOSE IN OUR LIVES starting with our mates. we dont love because of anything they do or do not do we simple love because Christ first loved us.

Today's Love Dare was this:
Spend time in personal prayer, then write a letter of commitment and resolve to your spouse. Include why you are committing to this marriage until death, and that you have purposed to love them no matter what. Leave it in a place that your
mate will find it.
Father thank you for this challenging yet amazing journey I have been on through this Love Dare you have taken us on we have come a long way and by no means have arrived however we do have a stronger marriage then ever before and I thank you for that. Help me be obedient to you and your word may I live by it moment by moment of everyday. Father I lift up to you now all the marriages who are now going through this Love Dare challenge I ask you to give them strength in the times where it is easier to give up yet may they be encouraged to see it through and reap the blessings because of it. Father I now ask these things in Jesus Holy Name, Amen.

Until Next Time,
Your servant in the Lord,

This was a great undertaking! I wish we could all know how you feel to have "stuck with it" and not given up. Your lucky husband and lucky family! Thank you for being transparent and sharing your sincere feelings.
