Put Some Promises In Your Pocket

 Do you hear about people who cling to the promises of God and wonder how they do it?

Are they really spiritual, with tons of memorized Bible verses that play like a ticker tape in their head?

I'm not one of 'em. I wish I were, but . . . I fall far short.

So this is what I do: I make a copy of God's promises to me and stuff them in my pocket or purse. If a picture of a squirrel burying nuts comes to your mind, that's about it. lol. Some days I remember to pull them out and read them when I'm feeling low, and other days I completely forget about them until I reach in, feel the slip of paper, and am delighted all over again with God's good news to me.

What are some of your favorite verses? Why not add them to the comment line today--they'd be a great encouragement to others! Thanks for stopping in today, and I hope this gives you a little lift.

  1. I remind myself of this one every night before I fall asleep: "...and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband-the Lord Almighy is his name..." Isaiah 54:4,5 NIV

    Another one: "A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling." Psalm 68:5 NIV

    And one more: "For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." Isaiah 41:13 NIV

    And as I fall asleep I imagine that God is holding my right hand.
