The Love Dare – Day 21

(You can read more details explaining how we are doing the dare here: The Love Dare with FirefighterWife)

Love is Satisfied in God

 The Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire.

Isaiah 58:11

 

Excerpt from The Love Dare Book:

“Your husband may be late coming home.  Again.  But God will always be right on time.

 Your wife may let you down.  Again.  But God can always be trusted to deliver on His promises.

 Every day you place expectations on your spouse.  Sometimes they meet them.  Sometimes they don’t.  But never will they be able to totally satisfy all the demands you ask of them – partly because some of your demands are unreasonable, partly because your mate is human.

 God, however, is not.  And those who approach Him in utter dependence each day for the real needs in their life are the ones who find out just how dependable He is.”

Today’s Dare

Be intentional today about making time to pray and read your Bible.  Try reading a chapter out of Proverbs each day (there are thirty-one – a full month’s 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.

How are you doing?  Has it been easy?  Struggling?

Big question for the fire wives…..what is your favorite daily devotional or favorite way to read the bible every day?

    Today’s dare should be the easiest, yet it’s the one I fail in most. I get daily devotion alas from the author of “The Purpose Driven Life” and this week is about God’s Word too. Hmmm, I get the hint Lord. Seriously, I know I need to “feed” myself daily, but I never have the time it seems. Wow, good thing The Lord has time for me. As my marriage should be Christ centered, I know I need to wake a little early and find a special spot to read, one I won’t be tempted to check emails at. I know what to do, but Satan keeps hitting my snooze button! Seriously, thanks Lori for the reminder that I need to be reading my Bible.

    I am trying not be critical of myself or myself. So I asked her dies any thing I do please her or encourage her she was brutally honest saying no. I shall continue to pray until God tells me otherwise.

      The more I commit to God, the more I commit to my husband and relationship. There is no hope without God. Today I choose hope.
