God’s Promise

Standard

 

Genesis 9: 8-17 Then God spoke to Noah and his sons; “I’m setting up my covenant with you including your children who will come after you, along with everything alive around you—birds, farm animals, wild animals—that came out of the ship with you. I’m setting up my covenant with you that never again will everything living be destroyed by floodwaters; no, never again will a flood destroy the Earth.”

12-16 God continued, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I’m putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth.”

17 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I’ve set up between me and everything living on the Earth.”

God's Promise 2

 

When Corynn was young I had a pair of hand knit socks that looked like this.  I wore them out!  I recall reading Noah’s Ark to her one day and I was wearing these socks.  After we read the story she looked at my feet and said, “ Mommy, you’re wearing God’s promise on your feet!”

I love my kids!

Sweet! 

Today she is 17 and she is wearing God’s promise in her heart! She plays in the praise band at church, wants to be a missionary and  is very active with her youth group.  I am thankful for children’s authors, great publisher’s, Christian artists, and a God who keeps his promises! 

Blessings for your day,

  1. Love the sock story Donna. It’s my belief that Corynn is well on her way of being a missionary, I know that God will continue to bless her.
