Precious Promises


I am a creature of God, and He has undoubted right to do with me as seemeth good in His sight. He has my heart in His hands, and when I am called to face danger, to pass through scenes of terror and distress, He can inspire me with fortitude and enable me to trust in Him.


Jesus His faithful;
His promises are precious.

Amen! I've never heard that before, but I think it's one I'm going to copy down and save! He has my heart in His hands... Just recently the Lord's been giving me that very exact visual picture of where my heart needs to be. Thanks again for the blessing!

Bethany,

I just have to say thank you again, for allowing God to use you in the lives of others. This hit so home as I've felt His pull to stamp this very thing, deep on my heart!

What a challenge! Am I allowing Him to do what seemeth good in His sight? Or do I want what I think is right in my eyes? If my heart is wholly and fully in His hands, than no matter what comes, I can press through in His might, knowing He will enable me to trust in Him!

So what I needed, exactly when I needed it. Thank you, and praise the Lord for His ever faithful leading!

Love ya,
~Abi
PS--The picture compliments the post so well, and just pulls it all together!:)
