God’s Promises {One Beautiful Thing}

I woke up to this beautiful surprise —

this gift that has awakened me to spontaneous worship!

Oh people of God — Be Encouraged!

His promises are Yes and Amen!

What have we to fear? If God is for us, who can possibly be against us?

How wonderful are Your works, oh, Lord, to those who trust in You.

I trust You, Lord! I trust You! As this rainbow spans our property,

I am reminded how Your love and grace and mercy span my life.

You have me covered! You haven’t forgotten. You will never forsake me!

You will never give up on us!

Your love & mercy is everlasting!

Faithful, Amazing God, thank You!

My heart is full!

    Gorgeous photo Michele-Lyn! Like a ‘canopy’ of blessing and protection over your land and home. He is so awesome in the ways He surprises us with His displays of breathtaking beauty around us, and of course, the rainbow carries a promise as well. Your kids probably loved seeing this in ‘their yard!’

      Thank you! And yes, that is what I thought, “like a canopy of blessing”! My thoughts turned immediately to the majesty and the faithfulness of our God. Then my heart welled up with gratitude and my lips filled with praise! Amazing God, He is!

    Wow! That was BEAUTIFUL! What an amazing gift from God to start your day with πŸ™‚ I just posted today on God never leaving us nor forsaking us & I LOVE that you’re reinterating that point here! It’s hard in the midst of the storms to see God’s hands, but they’re there. We just have to trust, have faith, & believe!

      I love it when God confirms His leading us. We need the extra assurance, sometimes πŸ™‚ You comment ended up in the spam folder — I am sorry about that πŸ™‚ Thank you for blessing me with sharing your thoughts.

      Have a most blessed weekend πŸ™‚
