Hymn & Scripture Challenge # 4 - Standing on the Promises

Promises, wow, do you know how hard it is to keep a promise at times?  You know when we get married, we promise to love our husbands in sickness and in health, through good times and bad times.  There have been times that promise was hard to keep!  Now don't get me wrong, I love my husband of 37 years and He loves me, but there are times if you know what I mean. lol

Well there is one whose Word we can stand on and whose promises we are guaranteed!  And that is Jesus Christ!  As Patter said on her post, which you can find here, promise is a word that should be taken lightly as God does not take it lightly.  If it is a promise from God, know for certain that He stand by His promises.  And I know that to be true as I have experienced many of His wonderful promises.  The one and most important is Romans 10:9 "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."  You see I have confessed Jesus is Lord and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead and by doing this I am now saved by His Grace, His child forever!

So here is my page for this Scripture Challenge and as you can see, I chose Psalm 91:4 and Philippians 4:13 as more of my favorite promises.  Actually they are all my favorite, but I can't get them on this 6 X 6 page.


Here is a close up of the verses!
