Promises, Promises, Promises…

Wednesday 25th August 2010.

I love it when the sun is shining…. and I love it when it rains. But I don’t like it when it’s in between! There’s something unsettling about seeing grey clouds and wondering if it’s going to rain or if it’s going to clear up and let the sun come out. This weather causes major wardrobe problems at times!!

On a totally different note, have you ever experienced the hurt, frustration, annoyance and disappointment caused by someone who did not keep their promise to you? You know- a sense of being let down, which lessens the trust you have for that person in the future. I certainly have!

I’m sure you’re thinking, “What on earth does the weather and promises have to do with each other?!” Well, check out today’s proverb-

Proverbs 25:14 (MSG) says  Like billowing clouds that bring no rain is the person who talks big but never produces. When we see stormy clouds, we expect rain. In the same way, when someone makes a promise, we expect them to keep their word.

A Girl of Wisdom isn’t just all talk and no action. She keeps her promises and becomes known as a person who can be trusted.

So, what sort of girl are you? Do you follow through on what you say? Or do you make a lot of empty promises, promises, promises…?
