promise (n.)

2.a. Mid 14-c., “A declaration or assurance made to another person (usually with respect to the future)...”

I wasn’t there when the covenant was made. 

Does His promise even include me?


I will bless you and make your descendants as countless

as the stars of the sky…and in your descendants

all the nations of the earth will find blessing

| Genesis 22:17-18 |

I see mountains and hills around me crack

relationships on rocky ground.

I am exposed and misunderstood–

Does His promise cover me here?


Though the mountains fall away and the hills be shaken,

My love shall never fall away from you

nor my covenant of peace be shaken...

| Isaiah 54:10 |


I’ve taken a step towards His outstretched Hand, but 

I feel the roaring and rolling of the waves about me

and I’m not sure where I stand with Him–

Does His promise still hold me here? 

Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;

I have called you by name: you are mine. 

When you pass through waters, I will be with you;

through rivers, you shall not be swept away.

| Isaiah 43:1-2 |

He calls out to you and promises to meet you

right where you are now. 


He promises a place for you

in friendship and community,

in the Church,

in His Heart.


He promises to bless you

and through you, bless many more

in ways beyond understanding.


He’s eager to show you His Heart

and share with you the future of hope

He has planned for you.
