The DARE starts TOMORROW!!!!
For those of you who have purchased the book- YEAH!! It is a worthwhile investment and a resource in which God will touch and grow your marriage...
For those of you who have not purchased the book... fret not! I will be sure to include enough of each day's "chapter" to explain the foundation for each dare!!
Before we get started tomorrow, let me summarize a few things the book touches on it the introduction of Love Dare...
The Scriptures say that God designed marriage as a GOOD THING. He uses marriage to help us eliminate loneliness, multiply our effectiveness, establish families, raise children, enjoy life and bless us with relational intimacy. He also uses marriage to show us our need to grow and deal with our own issues and self-centeredness.
IF we are teachable- we will learn to do the one thing most important in marriage... LOVE. This dare is about just that. Accepting this dare means taking the view that instead of FOLLOWING YOUR HEART, you are CHOOSING to lead it. This is a journey of exploring and demonstrating genuine love, even when your desire and your motives are low.
LOVE IS A DECISION!!!
It is not just a feeling. It is selfless, sacrificial and transformational.
Tomorrow is Day 1 of the 40 Day Love Dare Challenge. I don't know how any of you are feeling but I am a host of differing emotions. I'm hopeful and expectant of what God will do... and yet I am nervous, arrogant and full of fear as well. I'm having to choose to think on the things that are good, right, true, excellent and praiseworthy instead of the what ifs, why should I have to's and seems easier to serve God as a single thoughts. (OUCH! Clearly I'm warming up to this honesty bit.)
God has a work to do in me ya'll!!!
Who's with me?
