Standing on God's Promises

I Am Standing on His Promises

It’s been a while. Does the undertow of life ever knock you off-balance? Oh, good. Not that you fall, but that I’m not alone. I don’t like being alone!

I intended to post this at the beginning of our new year…but, well, you know. That’s life, isn’t it? Happy belated new year, by the way. Thank you for visiting our blog over the past year. Our posts will dwindle to once a week–I hope at least that often. My dear friend and blogging-sister-in-Christ has taken on a full-time teaching gig, so we won’t be seeing much of Susan this year. I know, bummer, right? But to everything there is a season. Hopefully she’ll pop in every once in a while, though.

I thought I had this year’s blogging theme all mapped out months ago…intended to turn from who am I? To who is God? Seemed like a continuous study. But then that undertow thing happened. God often works that way, doesn’t he?

As 2014 drew to and end, I was pondering the ups and downs of my very ordinary life, and wondering why this particular wave of events, which really weren’t that significant in the grand scheme of life, took my feet out from under me, and that sweet, calm whisper in my spirit asked, “what were you standing on?”

Silly question! Or not. I stand on God’s Word, right? His promises for very believer, that is my foundation, that is where I plant my feet. Except, well to be honest, I’m not sure which promises I was rooted in. During this conversation with the Spirit I really couldn’t quote the promises I was supposedly standing on.

That’s a problem, and thus my new pursuit. Standing on the promises…now to identify them. That should fill my year with plenty of learning, which I love.

Got any suggestions for me?
