My Love Dare: Day 21

“The Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire.” ~ Isaiah 58:11




Day 21: Love is satisfied in God

God alone can satisfy all your needs. He is always on time. He always keeps his promises. He is always dependable.

You spouse is human. They will never be able to meet all of your expectations. They will never be able to assure you will be content no matter what happens. They will never be able to fill the God shaped hole in your heart. They are going to let you down at times. They will sometimes disappoint you. They will fall short of expectations.

This doesn’t mean that your spouse isn’t “the one” or that they are not a good spouse. It’s just that people are… well… human.

It’s time to stop expecting your spouse to give you all the things only God is capable of doing!!

Learn to trust God and depend on Him! God’s truth is the one constant, always dependable thing in life.

Seek Him. Love Him. Make your relationship with Him your top priority. He will supply you with all you need.

TODAY’S DARE: BE INTENTIONAL TODAY ABOUT MAKING A TIME TO PRAY AND READ YOUR BIBLE. TRY READING A CHAPTER OUT OF PROVERBS EACH DAY (THERE ARE THIRTY-ONE, A FULL MONTHS SUPPLY), OR READING A CHAPTER IN THE GOSPELS (MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN), AS YOU DO, IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE LOVE AND PROMISES GOD HAS FOR YOU. THIS WILL ADD TO YOUR GROWTH AS YOU WALK WITH HIM.

I make an effort each morning to spend time in God’s Word, and in prayer. I really do feel it makes a difference in how my day runs to take this time with just myself and the Lord. It has been a while since I have read through Proverbs in a month. Maybe March is a good time to revisit that book.

”You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” ~ Psalm 145:16

  1. March is a full 31 days too. I may join you in that Becky! My friend Katie, when talking about expectations, calls it "putting the God sized knees on a man sized back." She even blogged about it today with that same title I think! (I double checked. She did) Here's the URL:
