Over the last two weeks or so, I’ve been struggling showing my love to my husband.
After almost a week of fighting these feelings, my mom reminded me of a saying that I love, and hadn’t thought of during this time.
“Don’t doubt in the darkness, what you know to be true in the light.” <— Shine the Light….
I had been so focused on all the negative….the lack of communication….lack of time together….lack of intimacy, etc. That I didn’t stop and remember that God is with me, just as much in the dark times, as He is in the light.
I had forgotten that in order to stand on the mountaintop and have an amazing experience, I must walk through the valley, that I might ever be grateful for the mountaintop!
So I have been taking a small step at a time, to CHOOSE to show my husband that I love him.
* Making meals he loves
* Timing dinner so we can sit and eat as a family
* Detail cleaning and organizing the living room
* Scheduling a surprise Valentine/Birthday getaway for him and I, without kiddos
Picking up my feet to take these steps wasn’t easy.
When I know hubby and I aren’t connected, I shut down and retreat.
I knew I had to choose to keep loving him, even if I didn’t feel like it.
God being so amazing, reached down and fill me with love for my hubby all over again! I knew God would see me through the valley, and though I’m far from the mountain, I’m walking through the valley with my Father by my side.
I’m walking on….step by step….working on my hind’s feet……so that I will be ready to be set upon high places….
“He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.”
