God is Still Good

He’s Faithful

I’m no dummy, but I’m rarely the smartest one in the room either. Yet, there are things I’ve learned over the past few years that make me feel like I have it pretty well figured out. From the deaths of those I love to blessings of new friendships and sweet babies, God has remained faithful in my life. The only one in that relationship who wanders is me. Over the past few weeks, I’ve learned to wander less and lean into Him more.

I’m Thankful

When life (or the enemy) throws struggles, pains, frustrations in my path, God is still good and I’m thankful for His gifts.

When amazing things happen to me and those I love, God is still good and I’m thankful for His gifts.

Anyone who has lived on this earth can attest to the challenges facing us day in and day out. It can be a struggle to get out of bed in the morning.

I get it.

Struggles are Real

I’m no stranger to depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and all the other ways the enemy tries to break us and separate us from Christ. Yet, these things are all temporary. His word tells us this world is not our home. We are heading somewhere beautiful and pain-free. Somewhere many people I’ve deeply loved have already gone and others I’ve deeply loved have not chosen.

 

 Yet, He is still good.

 

If you are struggling today, He loves you and wants good for your life. If you are on the mountain top rejoicing over the beautiful bounty in your life, He’s there with you and wants good for your life.

If you are struggling today, God loves you and wants good for your life. #faithbeyondfear #Godisgood Click To Tweet

Our life circumstances NEVER sway Him or His love for us.

 

Isn’t that amazing?  I’ll never stop marveling over that truth.

 

Life is hard right now. Things seem to get piled on top of piles of piles of piles, but I choose to rejoice in His goodness.

 

How about you? How are you doing right now? How may I pray for you and your family?  In Romans 12:15, His word calls us to, “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”

    As always, your posts have a way of touching my soul(like you’re talking about me) even when I’ve shut God out. I bless the day I came across your website ma.

    I would love if you put my fate in your prayers. This site might just be what’s keeping me a little on track.

      Justice,

      I’m so glad to hear from you! You’ve been in my prayers and on my mind quite a bit lately. Praying the Lord lovingly and gently guides you back to Him. He loves you and wants good for you. If you were the only person on this earth, He STILL would have died on that cross. That’s how special YOU are to Him! Isn’t that amazing? Blessings to you, my friend!

    It’s amazing how a few tragedies have made me a wiser person. I would have paid a king’s ransom to avoid them at the time, but now they’re the reason I am who I am today. I’m so thankful for a faithful God who uses bad things for good. Thanks for sharing, Alynda, and we’re praying that things ease up for you and your family.

    Our sufferings truly teach us to trust Jesus more. We experience his faithfulness over and over. When life hits hard again, we can remember he is good. This rememberence can strengthen us all the more. My faith is much different today than it was 30 years ago. Encouraging post! Thank you!
