For this Dare, I was supposed to do 2 things:
- Destroy the negative list done Love Dare Day 7.
- Pick out an accomplishment and be intentional about highlighting it and appreciating it.
Destroying the Negative
I prayed as often as I could when I started doing a mental negative list. My role is not to tally things up. It’s to love you like Christ loves the church. If he doesn’t tally my horrible record against me, then I can’t do yours (which is actually not bad at all). I have no right to keep records of wrongs.
I have a right to talk to you about things that upset me, but I am not the person to sit and judge. I really should ask your forgiveness for that in the real world.
Being Your Biggest Fan
You’ve been so diligent and two things:
- Bringing order to our house–which allows for greater peace, and
- Encouraging health and exercise.
I’ve never seen you so disciplined as you have been over the last few months. It’s an incredible example. I hope I do better at encouraging you.
I pray that I do a better job about my mental lists. For that matter, I also pray that you fall more and more in love with me. I love you and I need you.
