I enjoy studying Scripture to discover how I can be more like Christ.
But sometimes, I just need to soak up the goodness of God.
I revel in his promises to believers – promises that, as God, he can always be trusted to fulfill. I appreciate that he included so many in Scripture, revealing his paternal, eternal, merciful, faithful love for us.
These promises particularly encouraged me today, and I hope they will raise your spirits as well!
