Clinging to His Promises

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.  Deuteronomy 31:8

Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:10 

The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid? ... I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.  Psalm 27:1, 13-14

We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.  Psalm 33:20-22. 

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.  Psalm 37:5-7a

Whom have I in heaven but you: And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.  Psalm 73:25-26

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust."  Psalm 91:1-2

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us...And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who live him, who have been called according to his purpose...No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:18,28, 37-39 

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us...Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen in temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  II Corinthians 4:7, 16-18


  1. A Prayer of Moses:

    " Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days."|
    ~~~Psalm 90:14

    Marked by Love:

    "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

    And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
    ~~~1 Corinthians 13: 11-13

    Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love:

    "What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?"

    How To Live a Life and Worship God:

    " And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you.
    Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
    Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think"
    ~~~Romans 12:1-2

    How To Change the Way You Think:

    "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
    ~~~Philippians 4:8 NIV


    "Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies."
    ~~~Philippians 4:8-9 The Message

    In time of great need, a woman at Grace Baptist Church in Erie sent me a card. Inside, she wrote simply:
    "EPHESIANS 1: 15-23 WOW!!!"

    When I looked it up, I realised that strangers were praying for my needs. Only a loving God could set such an operation in motion, with me unaware!

    Here it is, but look it up later and pass it forward:
    Thanksgiving and Prayer

    "For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
    I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way."

    You have crafted a wonderful post, child, family, and faith. I am grateful!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Best regards,
    Danny Lucas

  2. "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the LORD, is the Rock eternal." Isaiah 26:3-4

    "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."
    Psalm 37:4 (didn't want you to leave that verse out)

    Love you, Glupkers!

  3. I am praying for you & trusting God's "Perfect Plan" for your sweet little family! Look forward to seeing that precious baby!
