Trust in God

     In our lives, there are all kinds of people. There are nice people, and mean people. There are people who believe in God, and those who don't. Also, there are people who you can trust, and people who you can't. Sometimes, it's hard to tell who the people you can trust are, and it can be very easy to trust the wrong people. Some people (and I'm not at all saying everyone, just some people) aren't trustworthy. But no matter what happens, no matter what kind of people are in your life, you can trust God to always fulfill His promises.

     All throughout the Bible, God makes several promises. He promised Abraham that he would have as many children as there are stars in the sky, He promised the Israelites that if they marched around Jericho seven times then the walls would crumble, and He promised Noah and his family that He would never flood the whole earth again, and He made several other promises that He kept. We have to remember that no matter what happens, that no matter what we go through, God always keeps His promises. The good, and the bad. My mom once mentioned at a ladies day that when she was younger, she used to wish that God would change His mind and go back on His promise so that everyone could get into heaven. Then she said that as she grew older, she was so thankful that He never would, because if He went back on His promises, then we would probably be doomed. We can look through the Bible, and find numerous stories about all the times that God kept His promises. So when you're having a hard time with something, remember that God will always keep His promises, and that we can always trust Him. Thank you for reading. :)
