Promise #176 – Tuesday, June 25, 2019
My name is a strong tower that you can run to and find safety.
Proverbs 18:10 (WEB)
The name of Yahweh is a strong tower:
the righteous run to him, and are safe.
Our stories are powerful. If we see the world as dead, we will kill it. And if we see the world as alive, we will learn how to serve its healing.
Promise #175 – Monday, June 24, 2019
I will provide justice for everyone who is mistreated.
Psalm 103:6 (WEB)
Yahweh executes righteous acts,
and justice for all who are oppressed.
Life is not about “or” — it is about “and.” It is magical and messy. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking. It is delight and disappointment. Grace and grief. Exquisite and excruciating, often at the exact same time.

Promise #174 – Sunday, June 23, 2019
I will protect the fatherless, and widows can trust in Me.
Jeremiah 49:11 (WEB)
Leave your fatherless children, I will preserve them alive;
and let your widows trust in me.
I wonder if gratefulness is the bridge from sorrow to joy, spanning the chasm of our anxious striving. Freed from the burden of unbridled desires, we can enjoy what we have, celebrate what we’ve attained, and appreciate the familiar. For if we can’t be happy now, we’ll likely not be happy when.

for they shall be called children of God.
Promise #172 – Friday, June 21, 2019
My goodness will lead you to a change of heart.
Romans 2:4 (WEB)
Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience,
not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
Forgiveness is the answer to the child’s dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again.
