How Good is God?

https://pixabay.com/en/users/12019-12019/



Think: "God is as good as He was when things were easy and He is as good as He is now when things are extremely difficult."

God is good. He is supremely good. He is consistently good. He is as good as He was when things were easy and He is as good now when things are extremely difficult. The intensity of His goodness only changes as how I deem it to be. But, regardless of how good I feel He is, He is and He exhibits the exact same goodness as He was and has done in the past, today, and in the future.




Think: "We lose sight of His goodness when we make it our pursuit to live our lives for here and now instead of for eternity."

There are endless ways we can perceive the intensity of His goodness. At times we lose sight of how much He loves us and of how much He will never fail to be good in our lives. We lose sight when we dwell on the brokenness, when we set our hearts on this world, when we make it our pursuit to live our lives for here and now instead of for eternity to come. We lose sight of His love and goodness when we forget that while God is restoring His Kingdom on earth, the ultimate fulfillment will come at a later time, not now.



Think: Each new day validates His goodness.

There's something assuring about the sunrise. It feeds hope, it states newness. Scriptures say, "He makes His sun rise on both the evil and the good." God is not a withholding God. The sun shines on all. Even on our worst days, the sun will always shine for you and me.



Think: Unexpected help and blessings validate His goodness.

Have you experienced unexpected help from someone when you never told anybody about your need? Have you received something from someone you never expected would give you something? Did some random stranger assist you and vanished into thin air? Did you feel a prompting inside that helped you avoid a dangerous situation? The Bible says we sometimes meet angels and we are unaware of it. In Psalm 32:8 God says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you." God sends favor upon favor, help upon help. He is so good.

What is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. (Marianne Williamson) What is Forgiveness?When you've forgiven, is everything just lost and forgotten? Like a memory wiped off, the incident and the feelings that go with are never to return?

The offense and hurt never happened? No traumatic, hurtful event took place? There's no history because no such thing took place? Is that what forgiveness is?

Each of us deals with pain and offenses in different ways and in our own unique ways. At times, our journeys sort of connect and merge with others. At other times, we may handle the hurt in ways that are uncommon with other people.

It may even seem like we're the only one who's facing that kind of experience and the way we resolve things may come off as strange for others around us.

Across age groups, genders, and cultures, forgiveness is not always simple, s…
