Good morning.

Many of us know the feeling of making well-intentioned, half-way promises. Promises made symbolically, politely, but without intent/assurance of full execution. Like when someone asks if you’re going to an event and you politely say, “Yes, I’ll be there” when you might not? Or when you have told someone that you'd “always be there” for them? You don’t mean this literally, but you say it to symbolize your deep love and loyalty.

When we’re in times of despair, the last thing we want is a halfway promise.

Psalm 46:1 says "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." This means God couldn’t be any more present. When we are in trouble, God is exceedingly, abundantly helpful to us. God knows when we are scared, He knows when we are overwhelmed. And He knows how to help.

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18)

"God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?"

(Numbers 23:19)

God's promises are not half-way promises. We don’t have to worry about being forgotten, misunderstood, or misled. Our Father is there, helping us mend our broken hearts, being a shelter during the storm.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
