God's Promises Blog Hop, Day 1



Welcome to the God's Promises Faith Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Tammy's blog you are in the right place.  If you just arrived at my blog, you should go to Paper Tree House Studio (www.mypapertreehouse.blogspot.com) in order to start at the beginning.  Every month a group of brave women get together to showcase the Glory of God.  This month we want to showcase His faithfulness during trying times, so kick back, relax and let the Lord touch your heart with His Truth! 

Did you know that there are 1260 promises in the Bible?  I did not count them myself, but am blown away by the fact that each and every promise the Lord gives, He is faithful to fulfill.  It is pretty easy to believe this when times are easy and abundance surrounds our lives, but is that the same when trouble hits?

The Bible says that our hearts are deceitful above all things and then it adds WHO CAN TRUST IT? Have you ever considered that maybe the reason why we dont trust God is because we spend more time looking at how big the waves in our lives have become and forget that God created the entire UNIVERSE with just His breath...  Think about it, the Lord spoke the ENTIRE World into existence... the only thing created that was made with His hands was man and woman.  That is why He says that if He provides for the birds and the plants, how much more to His children?  You are precious to the Lord and He will not fail you, even when it feels He might. 

In this hop you will read the stories of women like you that have faced trouble and probably even lacked the faith to believe in the miracle the Lord performed at the very end! Our prayer is that you would open your heart to the Truth found in these promises and that you would even share with us what God has done in your life.  Your victory may become our hope... :)

During the hop you will find many chances to win prizes! All you have to do to be considered for one of those prizes is leave a comment and become a follower of the blogs you will hop through.  For the Grand Prizes , make sure to leave a comment, become a follower, and "LIKE" Paper Tree House on Facebook.  This will allow you to find out about future hops we will be having.

God's Fulfilled Promise in my life:

I came to Christ a little later in life than most. Prior to this I had experiences where God's love was evident to me and I knew that I was never alone. Recently we have had an upheaval in our family and I know that it is not the working of God but of the enemy. I was praying as I was so upset that I was having difficulty with the day to day of life. How much should one person have to endure. I knew that I could not handle this on my own and then my answer came, "If you have the faith of a mustard seed..." (Matthew 17:20: "...Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move"). Nothing will be impossible for you.”Things may not work out the way that I want them too but they will work out according to God's plan. I am choosing to have faith and believe He has it in under 
control and I will be led for what he has planned for me.
