Trampoline. Swingset. Pool. See-saw. Bikes.

There was a time in our lives when we wondered if we would ever have the privilege of having children in our family, and thus the joy of a yard filled with activities.  There were plenty of nights we soaked our pillows with tears.

But God had promised. So, some days we had great faith. Yet other days we wondered if that promise would ever be fulfilled.

But God promised. And His Word says that He always keeps His promises.

In some ways, I wish we could have seen then what our life looks like now with two handsome, strong, growing boys in it.  I guess that’s not really having faith, though. At the time, all we could do was hope… and trust… and pray… and take Him at His Word.

Surprisingly, from time to time, we find ourselves in similar situations… you know, needing to take Him at His Word when it hasn’t actually happened yet. And it isn’t a whole lot easier now… until I look at those two miracles playing in the front yard, hollering for me to come play with them… and then I am reminded that…

God always keeps His promises!

So, if you’re going through your own time in life when you wonder if God is actually going to do what He said, take heart and take note. You’re just as special to Him as we are. If He did it for us, He’ll do it for you. It’s not about us. It’s about His character. You can count on him because…

God always keeps His promises!

I too now am having to trust God for promises he told me would come to pass Its oftentimes in the waiting that we doubt and wonder if we heard him right. I love that y’all have two visual reminders of Gods promises every day! Thanks for sharing! Love the page!
