Promises

There are many things that are broken in this world; promises must have the highest casualty rate of them all.
Politicians break them with monotonous regularity and Parents break them to their children often with disastrous results.
Marriages are dissolved when promises made in the Marriage vows are broken.
There is a worldly saying that Promises are not worth the paper that they are written on.
The Bank of England promises to pay the Bearer the value of the note. That is one that will be honoured.

When I was young my parents did not bring me up, I remember the times when my Father promised to visit me and he did not bother to come. It took me a long time to trust when a promise was made.

The Bible is full of Promises and every one is sure and true, since I have known Jesus I have learnt to trust and know that what is said from Geneses to Revelation is a true fact. It is there in Black and White and certainly worth the paper it is written on! Sealed and signed in the Blood of Jesus!

In 2nd Peter Chapter 3 verse 9 States that the Lord is not slow concerning his promise to return.

Genesis Chapter 12 verses 1-3 Shows that God kept his promise to Abraham that he would make him the Father of many nations and would bless him.

Jesus said that in my Fathers house are many Mansions, if it where not so I would have told you so.
Now that is what I call a Promise!

Cyril Almond.

I understand where you are coming from, a broken promise is definately felt in the heart as a betrayal coming from a parent, a friend or who ever. God Bless

I've always wondered why on earth a mansion in heaven is desireable to people...

As for the entry, there are some nuggets of goodness in here, nice post.

Learning how to believe God is true, when so many others haven't been has been a real area of growth for me also.
