"The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble."  Nahum 1:7


Today has been an absolutely beautiful day in the little corner of the world where I live.  The temperatures are starting to drop so it is not so hot and the sun was shining brightly without a cloud in the sky.  It was the type of day that is perfect for driving thru town with windows rolled down and the sunroof wide open.

Which is exactly what I did as I was out running errands this morning.  As I drove and enjoyed the weather, I listened to a favorite CD by "Point of Grace".  I've listened to these songs many, many times and really for awhile was just singing and driving and not really thinking much about the words.  After a bit, though, the CD came to the song "You are Good".  My ears and my heart perked up some as these words began playing,

When the sun starts to rise and I open my eyes
You are good, so good
In the heat of the day with each stone that I lay
You are good, so good.
 
God IS so good, isn't He?  This is something I know, something I've experienced... and, yet, I was struck anew this morning by His goodness as I really listened and sang along with this song.  
 
 

And, God isn't just good when life is moving along smoothly.  God is still so good when the roads become rocky, when we watch loved ones suffer or when we suffer personally.  Life gets hard sometimes.  But, still.... God IS Good.
 
I'd like to close today with the full lyrics to this song.  May each of you have a blessed Sunday and fully experience the goodness of God!
 
Blessings,

You Are Good
When the sun starts to rise and I open my eyes
You are good, so good
In the heat of the day with each stone that I lay
You are good, so good




With every breath I take in
I'll tell You I'm grateful again
When the moon rises high before each kiss goodnight
You are good



When the road starts to turn around each bend I've learned
You are good, so good
And when somebody's hand holds me up, helps me stand
You are so good



With every breath I take in
I'll tell You I'm grateful again
'Cause it's more than enough just to know I am loved
And you are good



So how can I thank You
And what can I bring
What can a poor man lay at the feet of a king
So I'll sing you a love song
It's all that I have
To tell You I'm grateful
For holding my life in Your hands



When it's dark and it's cold and I can't feel my soul
You are still good
When the world has gone gray and the rain's here to stay
You are still good



With every breath I take in
I'll tell you I'm grateful again
And the storm may swell even then it is well
You are good


So how can I thank You
And what can I bring
What can a poor man lay at the feet of a king
So I'll sing you a love song
It's all that I have
To tell You I'm grateful
For holding my life in Your hands

Melanie - this is so needed right now. I can't sleep, worrying about my cat who won't eat and wondering what I can do to feel better right now at 5AM. PRAY because God is so good.
Thank You!
