"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

16 Day Love Challenge




Head on over and check out The Imperfect Wives
and their Facebook Page

The Love Challenge is based on
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

Love is GOD!!!

These are the days of the challenge…. I will post more as they share more.

If you need it, to help you through, replace love with your husbands name… ‘Shane doesn’t insist on his own way.’  Pray it that way and stick with that throughout the day.  Even on the days that you are having problems put your name there… pray that for yourself as well so you can find that strength to get through the day!

Day 1~  Today's Challenge: Love is Patient... 

~We are challenged to remember that God is patient with our mistakes and growth, there for we will be patient with God as He works all things out for our good.

~We are also challenged to choose to see patience as a characteristic of Love in our husbands and respond to them with patience {even for those who don't see this at the moment}. :)

God Is Love = Love Is God

Day 2~ Love is KIND, which means having or showing a friendly, generous, and considerate nature; affectionate; thoughtful. I am praying for all of us that we would remember how KIND God is to us, to speak words of faith concerning our husband's kindness, and to ask the Lord to anoint us to display HIS kindness through us toward our husbands (and everyone else!).

Day 3~ Love Does Not Envy! Envy = a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another's advantages, success, possessions, etc. {Dictionary.com}

Did you know that envy and jealousy go hand in hand? Envy can take us down the wrong road if we don't stop it in it's tracks. What are you envious/jealous about? Perhaps your envious of God. It may sound crazy but even this can be a stumbling block for many people. Maybe your envious of your husband and the favor God has given him. You can see his light shining but not your own. There are so many reasons why we can find our selves envying others. However, Paul is teaching us that Love and Envy don't mix. 

Your challenge today, just as David did, ask God to search your heart and reveal the area's envy is residing. Once revealed, submit these to God and let Him refine you. Doing so will restore your peace with God once again. ♥

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting." Psalms 139:23-24 {NKJV}
