Today we continue the Love Dare with week/dare four. But before we begin today's dare, I want to encourage you. Any time we try to do something positive, something good, often times Satan sees it as a game. You try to do good, so he tries to make things difficult. We are working on not speaking negatively toward our husband, so Satan might work to make us or our husband irritable that day. Don't let Satan win! Fight for your marriage. Kick Satan to the curb and dare to love your husband the way God wants you to.
"How precious are Your thoughts to me... How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would out number the sand." Psalm 139:17-18
Before we marry and we are dating, we often think about our guy. How handsome he looks, how sweet he is, how we can't wait to see him again, how we want to tell him how great he is and on and on. But then we marry and life happens. We are now very seldom, if ever, caught just thinking about our mate. We become selfish creatures. We want things our way. The bedroom decor, the living room curtains, the car, dinner, everything.
If you don't learn to be thoughtful, you end up regretting missed opportunities to demonstrate love. When we are not thoughtful toward our husband, we are missing opportunities from God to show our mate love.
Love requires thoughtfulness- the kind that builds bridges through the constructive combination of patience, kindness and selflessness. Being thoughtful can bridge a gap in your marriage. Whether in the middle of a disagreement or stale marriage or a solid marriage, showing thoughtfulness can show your husband how much you truly do love him.
Contact your husband sometime during the business of the day. Have no agenda other than asking how he is doing and if you can do anything for him.
