Love Dare Day 38: April 27, 2020
What is Day 38 about:
Do you have a dream that you don’t dare to pursue out of fear of failure or the lack of support? Does your spouse? What can we do about it? Twenty plus years ago, I had a dream that the women I intended to marry squashed; however, that is a story for another time.
This chapter discusses how you can show your support for your spouse on a whole new level by supporting a dream of their’s
What do I think about the material:
This chapter is close to my heart, because I experienced what it is like to have a significant other that does not support your dream. It is amazing how much influence we have over the ones that care about us the most. A life-long dream can quickly become yesterday’s jam.
On the flip side, God then brought me Jess, and through her, I am literally living my dream. Yes, finances are a challenge and we are working on trusting Him to keep the anxiety away, but because of her support I am back on track.
Sometimes, life throws us so much stress that our dream gets buried under the chaos. It is possible your spouse doesn’t even know what her dream is, but maybe you can help her find it. This chapter puts the responsibility on our shoulders to find a way to support her in her dream and not rely on her to tell us.
It tells us to listen between the lines when you talk. What is it she really wants out of life? Try to remember things that are unique to your relationship and past experiences that you know have brought her joy. Give when the moment strikes, and not wait for an opportune time. And lastly, start to daydream about things you can do in the future to support her dream.
The last one is fun. You get to fantasize about the perfect situation and try to make it happen. I promise, if you take this chapter to heart and invest in your spouse’s dream, the light in their eyes will shine brighter than you’ve ever see. Yes, even when they met you for the first time.
My task and how did I perform the task:
The dare for today was to ask what your spouse’s dream is and commit in both prayer and action to support them. It says to map out a plan to help them pursue the dream.
This was pretty easy. Jess and I had talked two days ago about her pursuing a scary dream she has had her entire life. We worried that the next steps would put a strain on our budget. So today, I walked into the kitchen when she was re-heating her coffee and told her I wouldn’t let her dreams suffer at the hands of our tight budget. I said I will do whatever I can to make sure we can afford it.
She shyly smiled and said, “really?” I assured her it will be fine and if it is in God’s plan for her to pursue this dream, which I think it is, then He will provide the plan, we just need to listen.
