Borrowed Words

God is Good All the Time

“The longer I walk with him, the more amazed I become with the seemingly ever expanding dimensions of God’s love for us. Of course, He isn’t becoming more loving for the greatness of his person is unchanging. He is love. but As I have moved through the decades of life with Jesus, I can’t describe the joy that comes from discovering more and more of his love all the time. The goodness we sing about isn’t simply a happy time for all when things are going well nor is it only for crisis when we receive those tough time assists from God for our struggles our pains. Yes, there are happy times and His loving goodness gives them and certainly there is a special grace for hard times when God’s love comes shining through beyond the trial to shower the glory of His presence in a way that heals hurts and comforts us in sorrows. There are a thousand facets to life and for each one there is an answering facet of God’s great love and it’s always good. He is always there. Always for us. Always able. So that whenever we deal with questions or concerns, whatever comes or goes, or however much time passes and the answer’s not immediately apparent still his word speaks saying, “What shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who or what can be against us? We are more than conquerors through him who loves us and I am persuaded that neither life nor death, angels or dark powers, things present or future, things high or low, there is not any created thing that shall ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
