God Has Said This Is My Promise

In Jeremiah 29:11 God says " for I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. they are plans for good not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Psalm145: 13 "For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps his promises. he is gracious in all he does."

God has promised me so much in this life. Not only do I have the glorious hope of eternity with Jesus but God has promised me things in the life I live now. I have been promised that My husband and I will instill spiritual blessing not curses to our children and their children and their children's children. Because Of our faith in God our whole household will know Him. Acts 16:31 "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household."
I have been promised to be used to see children who come from situations like mine be saved. Saved to know Jesus and saved from the destruction Satan had planned.
the enemy likes to steal these promises and try to make My God seem to be a liar. At times when I hear Satan trying to steal or cause me to forget the promises I pray to be like Abraham.
Romans3:3-4 "True some of them were unfaithful but just because they were unfaithful does that mean that God will be unfaithful? Of course not! Even if everyone else is a lair, God is true."
Romans4:13" Clearly God's promise to give Abraham the whole earth was based not on his obedience to god's law, But on a right relationship with God that comes by faith."
Romans4:18 " Even when there was no reason for hope Abraham kept hoping- believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him that's how many descendants you will have.
Romans4:20 " Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God."

Would I never waver from believing God's promises because he has said these are my promises. Even when I have no reason to have hope, when it seems as though nothing is right would I keep on believing as Abraham did. Thought his body was as good as dead he believed he would be a father because God said he would.

This new role as wife and women of God

I have been Mrs. Chris Davis for nine months now. I'm starting to learn what it means to be a wife, but I will be the first to say that I have a long way to go and a lot of growing to do. Each night I think to myself as I lay next to the man I have given my heart fully to, God how do I deserve to love this man and have him love me. Then I hear God saying back to me, darling I have always wanted the best for you. What a God I serve! Chris and I have walked through a lot in our short lives so far some of it as friends some of it as strangers and some of it as partners. I love the parts of life that we have shared as partners the most. Going to Target and picking out our first comforter and sheet set. Going to the mall and picking out our first valentines day out fits. ( as seen above). Going to bed and praying God what is your will for our lives.
The hardest thing I have been learning over these past few months is what it means to share my life with another person. Even growing up in a family of five I have never really shared my life with anyone else. It has always been just Chrissy. I have had and have some great friends that I have shared my heart with, even my room with, but never my whole life. The summer of 2006 I started the journey of giving my life to God. But God is God not a human that I share a full size bed with lol. I'm starting to learn the true meaning of selflessness. My husband is the least selfish person I have ever met... and I may be one of the most selfish people I know at times. But some how he still sees past my assumptions of my motives and sees a heart that is on fire for him and for God. My hearts cry is to see people that way, to see past the human motives and my assumptions of what they are wanting and meaning, to their heart. God has graced me with a person who excels in the areas I find my self the weakest. That is where our partnership begins. I see a piece of God's heart in Chris and he sees a piece of God's heart in me. True love, true selflessness is found alone in the heart of God, and a piece of his heart lives inside of each one of His kids, in me and you. We have a gift to share that no one else can that piece that God gave us. Through learning to share my life I have started to learn to share my heart, where the piece of God's heart dwells. I have learned to see the piece of God in this amazing man that I am now sharing my whole life with. Who would have thought even two years ago that I would have this life.... My God is good all the time!
