Happy promises of God

Today I am 65. “It’s just a number,” I’ve been told. And I’m grateful for that number. I’m grateful that God loves me, that He has saved me (so many times; most recently in December 2020), that He has redeemed me, strengthened me, comforted me, healed me, guided me, sustained me, encouraged me, corrected me, protected me, held me.

To celebrate, I was going to post 1,956 scriptures my birth year, but that would be a REALLY long post (and I could just say, “Go read the Bible”). When I turned 60, I wrote words about “what I know for sure.” Now, I want to give you God’s words, 65 verses that have touched my life. Most are in my favorite King James Version as that was what I memorized, what I’ve loved since childhood. So, grab your Bible, grab your highlighter, grab your promise. Let God touch you, too.
