God's Promises

Over the last few months I have come face to face with a realization... I love God, I trust Him, I want to serve Him, but I struggle to believe Him sometimes. I know what His word says, I have so many examples in my life of times that He has provided, yet I still question if He is going to do what He says. I know this is illogical, but it is still a struggle that takes place in my life...

I was able to have such an encouraging conversation with a good friend the other day where I was able to see God absolutely shining through her life. It was such an encouragement to be able to see how God is working in her life, and such a reminder to me of how He always provides and supports. That was super amazing, and such a blessing in my life. Then, as we were driving back from Canada yesterday we drove into a terrible rain storm. I prayed that God would clear the rain and give us good weather to travel, and like that - it stopped raining!!! Seriously, right after the words came out of my mouth. Then I looked out the window and saw the most gorgeous rainbow I have ever seen. Talk about a reminder straight from God that He will keep His promises and hears our prayers! I'm so thankful for the little reminders in my daily life that God cares about what happens to me and that He promises to always be there for me.
