This past year and a half has been difficult and its been easy at times to focus on the troubles, the heartache and the sadness, rather than on the Lord. A few days ago, I read this in my devotional:
type of prayer that empties us of faith frequently arises from focusing
our thoughts on the difficulty rather than on God's promise." (Jan. 4th 'Streams in the Desert')
So I've chosen a word for 2012: Promises...God's Promises.
Throughout the coming year I will be trying to focus on God's promises. I thought it would be fun to share these promises every once in awhile here on my blog. They will be under the heading of 'God's Promises.'
For today I'm focusing on this promise. This verse always reminds me that I am never alone. I think it's one of the greatest. :)
