• 9 Precious Promises

    13 May, 2018

    Chaotic change swirls around, then charges into all lives. 

    Deep waters cry out in the long, dark and cold nights for mercy. The turbulence within claims undue attention, it refuses to be jettisoned. 

    Such times are the best blessed opportunities to lean alone on God's words, to yet again climb that rock that is higher than I, to step behind the shield of faith, and to claim His promises.

    God's promises hold firm regardless of the size of the giant, or the ferocity of the storm. He does not abandon those who belong to Him.

    You know you can't slay Goliath, or quell the Mediterranean - but you do know who can.

    Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. (Psalm 116:7)

    When Jesus carries you there is no meter running.
