The Promises of God


I got joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart to stay! The bible says that the Joy of the Lord is our strength. I am finding out how true that is. I am amazed at how real the Bible is. I get so excited every time I get to see scripture come to pass in my life. The promises of God, the great big God of the world cares enough about little ol me that his promises come in my life.

No matter what is going on in life, the troubles or the finances, you can still have joy that is unexplainable. When you live for God, accept Jesus in your heart, the Holy Spirit has taken up a home inside you. Jesus is living inside you! What joy that is all in itself!

Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs. What I find is when my mind is focused on Jesus, all the troubles of the world just seem to be on the back burner. Its almost as if all the confusion and mess from the world cant over power my focus that is on God! That is just what the scripture is saying, Greater is He that is in me, then he that is in the world.

Time and time again life throws us curve balls. Guess what? You dont have to catch them; Jesus will catch them for you. You just have to stand on His word. Believe that He died for you and He cared enough to die even though we are not worthy to be loved that much. He loves us so much that not even death could keep Him from us! If you dont know Jesus, you just got to find out who He is! You just cant live this life without the joy Jesus meant for you to have. Oh, yeah, ITS FREE!

If you have an answered prayer, please share it. I share mine because I want to share how real and how wonderful God is! Email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
