God's Promises Faith Blog Hop

Welcome to the God's Promises Faith Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Paper Tree House Studio you are in the right place.  If you just arrived at my blog, you should go to Paper Tree House Studio ( in order to start at the beginning.

Every month a group of brave women get together to showcase the Glory of God.  This month we want to showcase His faithfulness during trying times, so kick back, relax and let the Lord touch your heart with His Truth!

Did you know that there are 1260 promises in the Bible?  I did not count them myself, but am blown away by the fact that each and every promise the Lord gives, He is faithful to fulfill.  It is pretty easy to believe this when times are easy and abundance surrounds our lives, but is that the same when trouble hits?

The Bible says that our hearts are deceitful above all things and then it adds WHO CAN TRUST IT? Have you ever considered that maybe the reason why we don't trust God is because we spend more time looking at how big the waves in our lives have become and forget that God created the entire UNIVERSE with just His breath...  Think about it, the Lord spoke the ENTIRE World into existence... the only thing created that was made with His hands was man and woman.  That is why He says that if He provides for the birds and the plants, how much more to His children?  You are precious to the Lord and He will not fail you, even when it feels He might.

In this hop you will read the stories of women like you that have faced trouble and probably even lacked the faith to believe in the miracle the Lord performed at the very end! Our prayer is that you would open your heart to the Truth found in these promises and that you would even share with us what God has done in your life.  Your victory may become our hope... :)

During the hop you will find many chances to win prizes! All you have to do to be considered for one of those prizes is leave a comment and become a follower of the blogs you will hop through.  For the Grand Prizes , make sure to leave a comment, become a follower, and "LIKE" Paper Tree House on Facebook.  This will allow you to find out about future hops we will be having.

God's Fulfilled Promise in my life:
There are so many Scriptures that speak about how the Lord will protect us, but I have always been intrigued by the fact that the shadow of His Wings is enough to protect Me.  If you are anything like me, it is very easy to believe that God can love others, that He wants to answer the prayers of the other faithful women, that He is able to protect and secure others...  but not ME!  It was not until I experienced a very difficult season in my life, (a season where I disliked someone so much I literally told the Lord I did not want to go to Heaven if this person would be there), that I actually sensed the shadow of His Wings over me.

Just like in the picture of my layout, I felt defenseless, surrounded by water I could not swim and completely vulnerable even before the Lord!  I knew what I was feeling was sin and that therefore I deserved to be scorched by my problems, but instead I experienced the loving hand of my Father carrying me and protecting me.  Somehow the Lord brought me to realize that His shadow was over me and because of His faithfulness (in spite of my unfaithfulness) I would not burn or drown!  Since then I believe the impossible because I experienced it!  May you encounter Him in this way this week... :)

I would love to bless you with a special goody bag, so please leave me a comment with your own experiences with the Lord.  I will be choosing one blessed winner. :)

To continue hopping go on over to Tammy's Blog  and make sure you leave her some love! :)

Thanks for hopping through this faith hop.  Know that we are praying for you and really hope your eyes are opened to the Truth about the Lord's Faithfulness! :)

Love in Christ,
