When God reminds you of His promises, He is reminding you to hang on. He is reminding you to keep going. You will suffer, but know that these present afflictions are not to be compared to the glory ahead. God brings you into remembrance of what He promised so you can continue to set your mind on things above. You may get distracted, but He will gently get you back on the road leading to His wonderful gifts. When God reminds you of His promises, you can see just how much He wants to bless you. So continue to speak Gods Word and apply it to your life. Don’t give up hope. Because faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Hold on to God’s promises because they are all yes and amen. So this means they are guaranteed.
“1-Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
6-But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Hebrews 11:1, 6 KJV
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
Romans 8:18 KJV
“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”
2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV
Last night I went to prayer/bible study with a heavy heart. My heart was hurting and I needed God to rid me of the pain. I was determined to go into prayer to leave this at His feet. I just knew that I was going to cry out to God on my behalf, but as I started to pray, I started to intercede for those that caused me this pain. I began to lift them up and found that the more I cried out for them, the lighter I felt. By the end of prayer, the hurt that I was carrying around was no longer there.
I am free!!
After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10

Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Luke 6:28
If you’re reading this and you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, there’s no better time like the present to invite Him into your heart and life. If you’d like to do this now, genuinely and sincerely pray this prayer…
I truly believe that You are the Son of God. I confess that I have sinned against You and cannot save myself. Please forgive my wrongdoing and let me live in a relationship with You from now on. I receive You as my personal Savior and believe that You have died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead and are alive and can hear my prayers. I invite You to rule in my life and in my heart from this day forward. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. Thank You for saving me.
In Jesus’ name,
When I look into the mirror, what do I see?
A woman that’s put together so wonderfully.
I was phenomenally made by God.
Yes, cheerfully He created a masterpiece to display.
For His work to speak of His goodness each day.
Let His greatness be seen in me
May my life be rich in favor for all to see.
I could really care less about what people think about me;
I cant allow their words to determine my destiny.
For me to become enslaved to the words of society,
would be a total disappointment to the One who created me.
I walk with confidence because I know Who holds my future.
I’m on a quest.
I’m on a mission.
Lord, use me.
