If you’ve lived long enough, you’ll come to notice that life doesn’t always make sense. Bad days come, unexpected things occur and leave us dumbfounded. Sometimes, even though we know God loves us, we forget. The truth is that life for a believer is not a bed of roses, sunshine and happy times. There will be thorns and sometimes storms, relationships diminish, work gets rough, finances get low, you name it. Life is hard! I think we can all agree to this. Right now I’m not having the best season in life but one thing I’m sure of is that GOD IS GOOD and He is Always is, no matter the situation or season.
I stumbled upon a chorus by Jonathan McReynolds this morning in my quiet time. It’s a simple yet profound chorus that I knew I needed to share.
Jonathan McReynolds – God is Good
“May your struggles keep you near the cross,
And may your troubles show that you need God,
And may your battles end the way they should,
And may your bad days prove that God is good,
And may your whole life prove that God is good.”
Whatever season you’re in, trust the loving and faithful hand of God and know that He will guide you through it. When you can’t see His hand, trust His heart and trust that HE IS GOOD.
Lord thank you for this reminder that you are Good. Despite what we see or what is happening, you are Good. Sometimes we look at the wind, the rain, the storms and the mountains, THE BAD TIMES and forget you. Help us to remember that the Good God is always with us whether we are going through the trials, going under the trials or going over the trials. Help us to always remember that we need You and we are to keep our eyes fixed on You. Lord may we never stray from the cross but instead cling to the old rugged cross in faithfulness to You. As we look back on our lives I pray that we will clearly see Your goodness, Your grace and Your mercy that kept us going, kept us safe and kept us FORGIVEN. Thank you for being good. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
