So, it’s October 3, and I’m already behind. No surprise there, really. I wanted to participate in the #write31days challenge because I have gotten out of the habit of blogging, and I miss it. So, better late than never, right?
One of the reasons I’m behind is the simple fact that I couldn’t decide on a topic for the challenge. I considered just joining the folks at 5 Minute Friday for a month of five- minute free writes, but it just didn’t seem to fit. I finally decided to focus on 31 Promises for Parents because I need some encouragement these days, and I thought you might, too. There’s no better place to look than God’s Word, and his promises are available to hang our hope upon.
That’s where we’ll start…with a promise about his promises. After all….
“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19)
When we’re looking for something to rely on as parents, God’s promises are there. I might speak and not act, but he doesn’t. I might promise and not fulfill, but he won’t.
“The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made…” (Psalm 145:13)
So the promises we’ll ponder this month all have one thing in common: they will be fulfilled.
In a world of uncertainty, I love a sure thing.
And in the madness of motherhood, I crave things that are constant.
This month, let’s run to the rock of God’s Word; let’s find joy in his faithfulness.
