Shandra Lee. With Heart Wide Open. A Miracle In The Making.

That’s how the communiqué began. Two words. Sudden Impact. I reached over and highlighted those words. No one else will understand the significance in this particular season of this particular phrase by this particular writer. Two words. Sudden Impact.

A promise made over a  year ago…. with no particular reason to be kept… when the world is one’s oyster… As Promised.

Shortly on the heels of this several friends initiated discussions of  Trust. Hmmmm. Promises and Trust…and…disappointment.  The wheels, they be a turning. The heart, it be a pounding. The walls, they be a crumbling. Breakthrough is near.

So off on another journey of revelation, knowledge, insight and Truth….about Promises and Trust. (btw ~I LOVE, L-O-V-E these searches ! keeps me from having to clean the bathrooms) I will not bore you with all the aha moments, the tears of realization, the thoughts of Hope and restoration. Keep in mind this is not a pity party  journey (though I dearly LOVE a party:) this about applying what I know that I know that I know (and that deep down YOU know, too)but just, for a season,  got a bit wobbled sidewards. This is about reconciling the seasons past with the present and putting feet to a bright, glowing, promise filled future.

Promises: commitments to do, or not to do, something. Simple as that.

Promise –  


 Trust : reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety of a person or thing; confidence in. (Simple don’t ya know?)

Trust |  

Then I came across “it”…it spoke to the “V” word and “projection” and predictability and…well you can read it: 

What is trust

 Mutual trust is a shared belief that you can depend on each other to achieve a common purpose; that “exposing” one’s self will not result in death but mutual understanding. And how does one earn trust? By one’s track record! AHA! simple as that!

But back to Promises~Did you know that there are 1240 Promises of God in the Bible.  One Thousand Two Hundred Forty. Did you know there are 7 Promises He has made to humans?  

The 7 Promises Of God to Man –

Did you know that I have come to believe every one? That I have come to pray and stand upon each Promise-NO not just the 7 ,all onethousandtwohundredforty. NO I do not know each one by heart but I do know the nature of my God…hmmm…wait for it….boom.

Promises. Kept and broken. To humankind these are just words flung out to what~~~show intent? that i will try really, really hard. Putting hope in the promises of man leads to disappointment. Putting Hope in the Promises of God leads to Life.  So I watch. I learn. I have observed who keeps their word {promise} or who overcommits {to please people}, who is an imposter and who is the real deal. Who has the track record of walking the walk and talking the Kingdom Truth…especially they who display the nature of Christ.

“As promised” is how the letter began. Two words. Significant Impact.




God’s promises”
