Give Thanks for the Goodness


Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Psalm 23:6


New International Version (NIV)


         This is my blessed assurance.  If I walk on the Lord's pathway I will always be taken care of.  I have nothing of which to be afraid.  I can look forward to my eternity with God, to be rejoicing in His presence.  God promised this and that's all I need.  

           When we learn to realize that there is good to be found in everything and every situation, we are closer to understanding another molecule in the bigness of God.   We need to keep our eyes and minds open to the amazingness that is the Lord.   Miracles are all around us and we don't even have to look that hard for them.
   

For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,  because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

1 Timothy 4:4-5

New International Version (NIV)

  1. I can see that there is goodness in everything and every situation, and also we learn from the not so good in life. Then why am I still feeling a failure as a mother?

    Good post Lee and thought provoking.

  3. Finding the good in everything is really a challenge, isn't it? Well, it is for me anyway! I know God is in all of my life, but I do forget and feel like a bobbing cork in the ocean.

    Thank you for your encouraging words!

    Peace in Christ,
