These Things I Know and Hold Dear

These things I know,
And hold dear.

You are Good,
And You do good.

Your Love is Steadfast,
And willing to suffer long.

You remain the same,
No matter my present state.

You are Faithful,
And keep Your promises.

You are Protective,
And my heart is safe.

You are Constant,
And I need not fear.

You are my Provision,
And there is no lack.

You are Compassionate,
And care deeply for me.

You are Understanding,
And bring Peace to my weary mind.

You are Present,
And I am never alone.

These things I know,
And You are Everything to me.

– Laurie Pontious-Andrews

2 Timothy 3:14-15 – Prayer

But as for me, I choose to continue to hold to the things that I have learned and of which I am convinced, knowing from whom I learned [them], And how from my childhood I have had a knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred Writings, which are able to instruct me and give me the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ Jesus [through the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness].

2 Timothy 3:14-15 – Prayer

But I will choose to keep on believing the things I have been taught. I know they are true, for I know that I can trust those, who were faithful, and who have taught me. I know how, when I was a small child, I was taught the holy Scriptures; and it is these that make me wise to accept Your salvation by trusting in Christ Jesus.

Notes & Quotes
Beth Moore
90 Days With A Heart Like His

Why has God chosen me?
Why did Saul turn on me?
Why did Jonathan have to die?

You may be going through a confusing time. You may not know how God is going to use a situation in your life or why certain things have happened to you. But you can be encouraged and strengthened by recalling what you know about God in the midst of uncertainties. In confusing times, recounting what we know refreshes us.

David still had many unanswered questions. He would never know for sure why God allowed certain things to happen, but he knew God had done exactly what He promised. You may never know why or how, but you can always know Who is faithful.

Sometimes we stand to learn the most about God from the situations we understand the least.

About unabashedhope

The name Unabashed Hope comes from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Unabashed means not embarrassed, disconcerted or ashamed. I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
