Promises, Promises

Oh, this one can be a tough one, can’t it? I’m reminded of that one 80s song with the same title as this blog post…

“You made me promises, promises knowing I’d believe. Promises, promises you knew you’d never keep.”

Too often as people, we make promises that we can’t, or sometimes don’t even intend to keep. Big ones, little ones. I’ve done it. Chances are, you’ve done the same.

And, what happens when we do this? Nothing good, that’s for sure. Promises get broken and then the damage comes.

Trust can be damaged and lost. People can get hurt. Like I was saying, nothing good.

The verse in the photo above was today’s daily selection on the Bible website I check every morning. There are certain verses that really just have a way of making you think, and this one falls into that category.

So, just a reminder today to also think…before you make a promise. Are you willing to commit to fulfilling that promise? Are you even able to fulfill it?

Those are questions you need to ask yourself and make sure you have a good answer to *before* making the promise, because…

It’s better not to make a promise at all than to make one and not keep it.

Have a great day, everyone.

God’s Way is Perfect

2 Samuel 22:31
God’s way is perfect. All the LORD’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.

God's Way is Perfect

Fortress

When my fear is overwhelming, on Your promise I will stand. You are faithful to the end…

…and when the battle comes, I know You’re my defender. A mighty fortress is our God. And when the victory’s won, I know I’ll still be standing. A mighty fortress is our God.

Our hands are lifted up, the King of Glory fights for us! One word will rise above, in Jesus’ name we overcome!

Gotta be honest, I am unable to listen to this song without getting completely fired up about the love that Christ has for me…and for all of us. He loves us, friends. That’s something to celebrate and take complete comfort in. Nothing that could ever come against us is too much for our God to handle.

Thank you God for being our mighty fortress!

The Rock Won’t Move

‘When the ground beneath my feet gives way and I hear the sound of crashing waves, and all my world is washing out to sea.
I’m hidden safe in the God who never moves, holding fast to the promise of Your truth that You are holding tighter still to me.
The Rock won’t move and His Word is strong. The Rock won’t move and His love can’t be undone!’

Thank you God for being our Rock…for holding onto us…for loving us unconditionally. You are amazing in every way.
