He is Good

As the sun rises each morning, I am reminded,

 God is good.

Every time I look at the smiling faces of my grandchildren – even the littlest one is smiling already – I am reminded,

 God is good.

My husband, Dave, and I are celebrating 37 years of marriage next week and I am reminded,

God is good.

My calendar is filled with good times and special moments with people I love and I am reminded,

    God is good.

I am completely confident in this truth –

   My God is good.

During the dedication of the Lord’s Temple in 1 Kings, we read that the musicians played the trumpets, cymbals, harps and lyres as they ‘joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord.”  The rest of the people also raised their voices and sang,

    “He is good; his love endures forever.”

I love thinking about how my voice saying “God is good”  is part of this enormous crowd of people who have loved God.  When I say these words, I am joining with all believers through all of history.  I hear the angels praising God with us, filling the heavens with gratitude through all eternity.

These words were true back when King Solomon built the temple and they remain true today.  When I became absolutely convinced that God is good, peace filled my soul  The truth is, no matter how bad or crazy or painful things in my life or in your life look or feel,  God is good.  Our circumstances do not change this fact.

   God is good; his love endures forever.

Thank you, Abba Father.
