Promises !

My dad had LOTS of sayings.  He had something to say for every occasion.......or a little song for whatever was going on.  He used to say: "Promises! Promises!"  In other words, your words are useless.  You make promises but never carry through.

Well, I found the Lord to stay true to His promises, every one of them.  

I bought this little box of verses around the time I was saved.  Bible verses were SO foreign to me.  My knowledge of the Bible could fit in half a walnut shell.  I'm so glad I still have the Bible I used when I first got saved.......I like to look at the pages and remember back when I was learning new things.  Good things.  True things.  

I happen to remember the first verse I memorized. 

 Psalm 58:11 .......... and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

What do you remember from when you were newly saved?  What sticks in your mind?  What makes you rejoice and smile every time you think of it?

So good to remind to think of our first love with Christ! I remember devouring the Word...starting with Galations for some reason, will His reason.
I was a young widowed mommy, "weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5

I was saved in a Sunday night service and our Pastor and wife invited us to eat with them, after church, so the Pastor's wife and I went to the grocery store.....I remember feeling like I was floating through the store and wanting to tell *everyone* what happened to me.

And, like Bonnie, I remember devouring God's word....I just couldn't get enough of it. :o)

"In my father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you..."....John 14:2. This is a very special passage for me.

My grandparents had one of those promise boxes. (I had one too but can't remember where it got to!)

I was very young when I first personalized faith in Jesus. My mother was with me - in one of my grandparent's bedroom (we were staying with them that summer). What I remember is the way the sunlight flooded the room - a blue room with white Priscilla curtains.....
