Faithful to His Promises

Well, my week was what I prepared for -- overwhelming. Overwhelming not in a bad sense but in the reality that I was feeling a whole bunch of things all at once. So many times we equate overwhelming times that are hard emotionally as bad things when in reality, if they are responded to with hope and trust in God can be quite good times. Good in the sense that it draws me closer to my God and allows me to work through the maze of emotions that come with some of life’s opportunities. It is these times that I must go to the Rock that is surer than I -- Jesus Christ my God. Friday morning was especially hard for me as I was working through the week and preparing to go to CO -- So I did what Tiffany did so many times, I immersed myself in God’s Word and reminded myself that He is “Faithful to His Promises.” Here are the verses that helped me through my overwhelming time.

Psalm 119
73 Your hands have made and fashioned me;
give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.
74 Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice,
because I have hoped in your word.
75 I know, O Lord, that your rules are righteous,
and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
76 Let your steadfast love comfort me
according to your promise to your servant.
77 Let your mercy come to me, that I may live;
for your law is my delight.
78 Let the insolent be put to shame,
because they have wronged me with falsehood;
as for me, I will meditate on your precepts.
79 Let those who fear you turn to me,
that they may know your testimonies.
80 May my heart be blameless in your statutes,
that I may not be put to shame!
