Look to God to Satisfy Your Deepest Desires, Not Your Mate — A Quote by Gary Smalley in “I Promise”

“If I expect something other than God to fill me, I feel frustration, worry, and other negative emotions. But as soon as I redirect my affections toward God, He begins filling me with the gifts that come from His Spirit… God placed deep within you an affinity for a connectedness with… It is in relationship with God that you and I find meaning, purpose, significance, completeness, inner power, peace, joy, and a relational sense of belonging. In short, there is no dream, need, aspiration, or anything else that you will ever desire that He can’t meet. Period. Why? Because the almighty God of the universe created us in His likeness with the express purpose of having us know and connect to Him so intimately that we become more and more like Him…”

“Your promise to be filled with God helps your mate. It takes the pressure off of him to be the one who must meet many of your needs. The pressure of having someone depending heavily on you for something you can’t ever fulfill can be devastating… We are not designed to meet the deepest needs of each other. To depend on others for what God only is meant to supply puts impossible pressures on a relationship. Your mate can’t live up to that kind of expectation, and to continue to expect such fulfillment will only cause disappointment.”

Honoring Your Mate Requires Action — A Quote by Gary Smalley in “I Promise”

“Honor is not really honor until it is expressed and demonstrated. Those positive emotions for your mate that you hold in your heart must somehow find their way out through your mouth… You honor your wife by treating her as if she were the most valuable creature on the planet. You honor your husband by treating him as if you were the luckiest woman in the world for snaring him… This means you are attentive to her needs or sensitive to his moods. It means that you continually put your mate first and seek the best for him in all situations.”

“GOD is INCREDIBLY in LOVE with YOU!” Shirts

Every 2 years, I place an order for shirts that tell people how much God loves them, and that also advertise this website, Please email me at if you would like to order any. See the links below for the shirts available. I personally am planning to focus on gold tshirts and hoodies (with red big letters and black little laters), neon yellow (also called safety green) in the same color inks, or ash (light grey) with teal ink for large letters and black for little letters.

The Person of Jesus Alone Can Satisfy Our Hearts — A Quote by Mike Bickle in “Loving God”

“People who are born again do not automatically have a sense of the nearness of God. Effective ministry produces a satisfaction that comes through helping others and being useful in God’s kingdom, but it is not the same as the satisfaction that comes from encountering God in our inner man. The Holy Spirit may give spiritual gifts to believers and release His power through us, but these things do not ultimately satisfy the desire in our hearts for more of God… You alone can satisfy the longing of my heart, Jesus. All I want is more of You. Let me live my life in intimacy with You.”

God Transforms You to the True You — A Quote by Stasi Eldredge in “Becoming Myself”

“God! she cried out, change is so hard! She heard his reply deep in her heart. What if change is actually just me unveiling who you really are…? It is a beautiful paradox that the more God’s we become, the more ourselves we become — the ‘self’ he had in mind when he thought of you before the creation of the world.”
