God is Good



Not sure why I’m feeling compelled to write this morning, but I do.
I had a frustrating situation this morning that left me super annoyed and on top of that I thought it was Wednesday so I frantically ripped all of the sheets off the beds and threw them in the wash to get ready for the cleaning ladies and was in  rush to make sure everything was ready so they could clean…  Glad I’m ready for them them now…  a day early!  haha As soon as I realized it was only Tuesday and started planning for my day, I took a minute to browse through facebook which I haven’t made a lot of time for recently, and was overwhelmed by one friends life, in particular, and am in awe of what the Lord is doing in their life!  I watched this family walk through utter heartbreak and then by the grace of God, there was redemption.  It’s so fun to watch people be completely obedient to the Lord, surrendering everything, no matter what, and continuing to have faith that their suffering has a reason and isn’t in vain.  Sometimes He’s not done writing our story and it’s so powerful.  This family is such a witness and it’s so beautiful to watch.

As for me this morning, I am thankful.  My God is good.  Whether life is good or bad right now, God lives in the peaks and the valleys with us and His grace is sufficient.  My prayer is that I can live the way this family does, clinging to Jesus and praising Him even in the storms.  There is a peace when we sit at the feet of Jesus, knowing we don’t have to endure everything alone.  He is good, He is faithful.  Trust.


I have no idea if any of this made sense to anyone, but it does to me and a year down the road I can’t wait to come back and re-read this reminder for myself!
