God is Good
Life is going along pretty good and then Wham! You get hit between the eyes with a bad health report … or you lose your job … or someone dear passes away. Things like this happen every day. Sometimes we take for granted our good health, our job or the people God has placed in our lives.
1Timothy 6:17 - “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;”
When is the last time you thanked God for your good health? for the job He has provided you with? for family and friends you hold dear? Joy comes, tears fall … find the beauty in it all.
If you trust God in the good times, you must trust Him in the bad times too. God is good all the time, all the time God is good! Psalms 103:2 - “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:”
Third grade. I drew my dreams on a blank page, My own silver screen; Painted sun, never rain. And love without pain. It's funny, that life I designed never played out Like I had in mind. Had some highs hit the ground, some ups that went down But one thing that I figured out … Joy comes, tears fall. I'm learning there is beauty in it all. It's not hard to find it, you just have to look. Oh, God is good! I've said Hellos and goodbyes and I've held my friends while they've cried; Tasted bitter and sweet, those moments between. Oh, He's had His hand on everything. God is good!
1John 5:4 - “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
