One Word

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:

"The 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. :)


  1. Cathy, excellent post! This is one of my resolutions for 2012: trusting God more :) I pray as we all learn to trust/know God more that our mindsets and perspectives would be completely transformed!!!!!! Thanks for sharing this post, blessings!

    1. Thanks for your kind words Kara! Blessing to you too in 2012. :)

  2. I am afraid I have been guilty of the same, focusing on the problem and not the Lord. Thanks for the post. I am blessed by reading it!

  3. I love the reminder to focus on God's promises. It's always too easy to get caught up focusing on our negative circumstances.

    God bless you, Cathy.

  4. Love it. Thanks for linking up!


Feel free to leave your own thoughts in the comments. I try to respond to all of them by the end of the week. : )
