God IS Good

Well, I do know that God is good, all the time, just like the song says.
But sometimes we are left floundering, wondering what He's doing.

I was reminded of His goodness in church this morning when the speaker told a little of the difficulties in his life and how he had often wondered if God was good to him.

He spoke of Joseph and the difficulties he had, ( thrown in a pit, sold as a slave, wrongly accused, put in jail), and yet the way Joseph had been transformed to show forgiveness and grace to his brothers. He even went so far as to tell them that "So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God".

After all Joseph's brothers had done to him and all he'd been through, he still trusted that God had been a part of it and had a plan.

I like that!
I want to have that trust (always) and show that grace (always).

    Kay, have you read the book The Shack? If not, see if you can get a hold of it. If you have, then you can relate when I say "all I wanna do is have a weekend at The Shack with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit - there is so much to learn there".
    How about we do a prayer deal - I'll pray for trust and grace for you every Monday morning (6amish) and you pray for me. ??
    Love you.
