The Love Dare says it's foolish, it's unreliable, and it's corrupt. Here I stop to pray, Lord, thank you for shielding my heart. Amen. I have loved my wife to the best that I know how. I will always honor our coffee time, our long walks, the quiet movies. These moments give me strength that my God gave me a wonderful gift in my wife. This divorce is not a weakness of my heart, a fickle emotion. No. I have made a lifelong commitment that reaches beyond this worldly set of feelings and emotions.
I honor God's gift by not letting circumstances change my love for Him and therefore her. Though my shield is not strong enough for two, I will fight the good fight. I will not excuse myself from God's will for my life just because the heart is selfish. "Let your heart therefore be wholly devoted to The Lord our God." 1 Kings 8:61
