God Keeps His Promises

As we look ahead to the seemingly bleak future and all that it holds, I am frightened. I said it, there. I'm scared that we won't make it.

What will our future hold? I feel like Evil Knievel looking across a great chasm. I can see the other side and the pathway there is straight and true. But in between me and the clear path is a dark and foreboding place. My earthly frame tells me I need to find a way over it, through it or around it.

But God...

Aren't those fabulous words? We find them over and over in His word to us, the Bible.

But God will provide a way. I don't just hope that he will, I know that will. Not only because he has provided in the past but because He says that He will in His word.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."

To me this means, I don't need to worry about my mortgage payment, clothes for my kids, or food for my table.

God will provide if I only trust wholeheartedly in Him.

Your right - everything will turn out o.k.
I'm soooo sorry about Bear's job and the rotten timing. Why do so many people get laid off during the holiday's.
It's when things are darkest that God carries us along. When we've done all we can do and all we have left is to trust and hold on to Hope. That's when the miracles happen.
I know there will be miracles in your life and that angels will keep you company.
My prayers will be with you and your family.

Ah, I am praying for you! Isn't it wonderful that we serve a faithful God? You are right, He will provide, some how, some way, and surely to His glory! My husband loves "But God." He once preached a sermon on those words. There is so much there. God bless you Mary!

As we go through the paperwork, the unknown and the excitement of a possible future in the military, I REALLY understand and relate to your post. How I need to hear those words though... and cling to the ONE who loves me Christ! Thanks! Shawn <><

In our 9 short years of marriage, we have faced many difficult times. My husband and I often refer to these times as "daily bread living." Trust God for today, don't worry about tomorrow. At the end of every single day, we could ALWAYS say, "Thank you God for taking care of us TODAY." God bless you and hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!
