God So Good
Maybe you’ve heard this popular phrase at church or in Christian circles: “God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.” It’s easy to say and easy to remember, but that truth can be difficult to feel. This song is a reminder that no matter what you’ve done and no matter what may come your way, God is good and in His never-ending goodness, He will not give up on you.
"This freedom purchased by the highest price, this grace outweighing all my shame. I’m made new through the power of sacrifice. From death now raised to life again."
God’s goodness is not a prize to be won or something to earn—it is freely given. Romans 5:8 NIV says: But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
When you feel like you are unworthy of forgiveness, or when everything around you seems lost, remember there is nothing that could separate you from His love and goodness. Even at our worst moment, God sent His Son to die for us so that we would have everlasting life.
So in every season, may we remember this good news: God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/mat.7.13-14.NIV
The Choice of Trust I absolutely love referring to the Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as many of Noah Webster's original word definitions contain references to the King James Bible itself; this was all before it was diluted into our contemporary dictionaries. Literally this is the definition found in that dictionary: TRUST , noun 1. Confidence; a reliance or resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship or other sound principle of another person. He that "putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." Proverbs 29:25 KJV 2. He or that which is the ground of confidence. ..."O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. Psalms 71:5 KJV Trust is a confident expectation. Trust, like faith, is not a feeling. It is a choice. I love that “he that putteth his TRUST in the Lord shall be safe” part of the definition above. Safe? Hmmm? In this world we simply cannot put our trust into imperfect humans. There is only One that cannot fail or forsake us.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:4-6 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/exo.20.4-6.NIV
