Good

There are times in my life were I feel like I am pulled to do something. Sometimes its to go for a long walk and pray. Other times its to sit and mediate and sometimes, like this week, its to read and read and read that good book. So, thats what I did.  And in my readings I found a verse in Lamentions 3 that talks about how good God is. And how his love never fails.

And I do not doubt that. But its easy for me to say that when my life is good. And when I am happy, when things are going “right” and everything is “fair”. Its hard to keep saying that God is good when my world had fallen apart. Its hard to keep blessing his name when I have no answers for things I’m asking. And its hard to bless and praise God in the midst of pain and trial.

But when I re read that section, and I looked at what it was saying. I realised.

In the midst of what I am feeling, what I am going through and the trials I face, God is STILL there. And when I doubt, and struggle, his love is STILL never ending. And to those who hope on him, and trust in him, he is so SO good.

I find that when I remember that, I am calm. Because I know that He is there, I know He knows, and I know He cares. And when I feel like I have nothing in control, and I can’t do anything, its such as blessing to know that he is STILL in control. Its so comforting to know that God is NEVER changing. His love NEVER ends. And he is ALWAYS GOOD to those that Love and depend on him.

May I always praise you for your goodness and love LORD, Not matter what trail, what pain and what is happening in my life. May I always remember how good and merciful you are. Thankyou for being unchanging, always loving and still good.

Love,

New Little *God-Is-STILL-Good* Wife

Yet I dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; His mercies begin fresh every morning. I say to myself ” The LORD is my inheritance; Therefor I will hope in him!’ The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.

  1. Oh SO true Mum! Makes me think of Romans 8.
    “Not death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present or things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in ALL creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord!”

  2. Having just got home from Rachelle’s funeral, a young mum with a loving husband and two small children we can think ‘some things just don’t seem fair’. But we can also see God has been SO good to her in her life and now is surrounding her little family with so many people to show abundant love to James and the kids; and that He has ALREADY given His son so that she will have a better life at the resurrection, – that we know that – God is always good !
