Many conversations are started with the words he, she, they promised! Everyone has felt the pain that comes from being on the working end of a broken promise. The pain is only intensified as the one who has broken the promise is someone we believed in, and counted on and the disappointment is smothering.

What do you do? Where do you go? How do you get through this kind of an episode? Today in my Bible reading I came across a verse in Psalm 4:8

In peace, I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, Lord,
    make me dwell in safety. NIV

The Psalmist reminds me that regardless of what is happening in me, to me or around me, I can have peace! Growing up I would hear the saints testify that God ” was giving them a sense of peace beyond all understanding.” As a young person, I wondered what that meant? It did not seem to make a lot of sense to me. Now that I am down the road a way I can testify to the fact regardless of what is happening, tonight and every night I will lie down and sleep in Peace! There is only one reason for this feeling and sense of confidence: “For you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” If our confidence comes from our achievements, wealth, education or position we have our confidence in the wrong source. There is only one true source of our freedom: Jesus Christ. Whatever is happening in your life you can have peace in the Lord Jesus Christ. Even when it makes no sense to those around us, we can say “I trust in God and He is my peace.”

There are a lot of wonderful choruses today that are helpful and inspirational. I am at the age that the songs that are deep down in my heart and mind, were songs I sang in church many, many years ago. A song that has especially touched and encouraged my heart lately is an old song entitled: No never Alone. I include just the first stanza and chorus may it encourage your heart today

I’ve seen the lightning flashing,
  And heard the thunder roll;
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
  Trying to conquer my soul;
I’ve heard the voice of Jesus,
  Telling me still to fight on;
He promised never to leave me,
  Never to leave me alone.
No, never alone,
  No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
  Never to leave me alone;
No, never alone,
  No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
    Never to leave me alone.


For your enjoyment I have included the first verse and chorus of this song:



Broken Agreement concept, suitable for many other uses including depression. The word “promise” is torn in two.
