Before I found the Lord I was full of empty promises, empty promises that were born from my many years of alcohol abuse while I was under the influence of this unholy world. My empty promises, unfulfilled, not carried out, incomplete. My empty promises, lies, guilt, shame, many sleepless nights. My empty promises, my past worldly indiscretions, my lack of good judgement without the Lord behind the wheel. But now, my empty promises are full, for I am sober, I am now under the influence of the Lord and His Holy Scriptures, I am saved. Lord I thank you for saving me, for there shall be no more empty promises, I promise.
When a man makes a vow to the Lord or takes and oath to obligate himself by a pledge, he must not break his word but must do everything he said.
