God Is Good!

Back to the Sweet "stuff" tomorrow. As for today's post, please allow me...

God is good. No really. I mean God is GOOD. I've been thinking the last few days about blessings in my life. Many of those things I take for granted - the food, the shelter, the clothes, the running water, the "job" I have (I can't believe I get paid to minister), the diversity of people that God places in my life, etc. I could go on and on.

On Sunday, our community of believers watched a video of those we recently sent to Mexico to build houses. When I use the word "houses" I really mean cinderblock structures - no office space, no bathroom, no running water, no lazy-boy or reading light. But those who received the building were extremely grateful to make this their home. Those reporting said, "Our lives will never be the same." Needless to say, there wasn't a dry eye in the room.

When I say "God is GOOD", I know that's nothing new. All good things originate with God. As the Psalmist records, "O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand" (Psalm 95:6-7 NRSV)

Sometimes it's good to just speak the truth simply. GOD IS GOOD!
