I have a confession: I am a little bit shy with joining groups. Friends and LinkedIn and Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest all have groups for me to join “based on my preferences.”
I tend to side with Mark Twain when it comes to groups. Until I read that there are more than 7,000 promises from God to us in the Bible. Many of those promises center on the areas I worry about the most, like being abandoned, uncertainty about the present and the future, or regret if I did the right thing in the past.
Here is my first and favorite:
If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest. ~Matthew 11:28
“When you face stormy seas I will be there with you with endurance and calm;
you will not be engulfed in raging rivers.
If it seems like you’re walking through fire with flames licking at your limbs,
keep going; you won’t be burned.” ~Isaiah 43:2
and this one~
The Father gives me the people who are mine. Every one of them will come to me, and I will always accept them. ~John 6:37
This weekend, would you like to create your own 7000 Promises club? It’s easy: just pick one promise or gather two or three more and carry them in your heart.
Perhaps you might share your Promise here in the comments too?
