Okay ya’ll, are you ready to take the Love Dare? If you don’t know what I’m talking about and want to learn more, just click on the badge below and you can read more about what the program is, what it means to me and why I’m hosting this 10-day challenge.
In the meantime, let’s get started. Please visit this post every day for your new challenge. I’m actually going to be one day ahead of ya’ll so I can write about my experiences and I will post about my experiences in separate posts and link to them here.
Day Ten: Love vs. Lust. End it now. Identify every object of lust in your life and remove it. Single out every lie you’ve swallowed in pursuing forbidden pleasure and reject it. Lust cannot be allowed to live in a back bedroom. It must be killed and destroyed — today — and replaced with the sure promises of God and a heart filled with his perfect love. What did you identify as an area of lust? What has this pursuit cost you over time? How has it led you away from the person you want to be? Write about your new commitment to seek Him — and to seek your spouse — rather than seeking after foolish desires. My experience.
Day Nine: Love takes delight. What did you decide to give up? What did you do together? How did it go? What new thing did you learn (or relearn) about your spouse? My experience
Day Eight: Love fights fair. If your spouse participated with you, what was their response? What rules did you write for yourself? My experience
Day Seven: Love is not jealous. How hard was it to destroy the list? What are some positive experiences that you can celebrate in the life of your mate? How can you encourage them toward future successes? My experience
Day Six: Love believes the best. Which list was easier to make? What did this reveal about your thoughts? What attribute did you thank your spouse for having? My experience
Day Five: Love is not rude. What things did your spouse point out about you that need your attention? How did you handle hearing it? What do you plan to do to improve these areas? My experience
Day Four: Love is thoughtful. What did you learn about yourself or your spouse by doing this today? How could this become a more natural, routine, and genuinely helpful part of your lifestyle? My experience
Day Three: Love is not selfish. What did you choose to give your spouse? What happened when you gave it?” My experience
Day Two: Love is kind. What discoveries about love did you make today? What specifically did you do in this dare? How did you show kindness? My experience (Plus more about kindness)
Day One: Love is patient Did anything happen today to cause anger toward your mate? Were you tempted to think disapproving thoughts and to let them come out in words? My experience
