God is Good

November 11, 2008

One of my favorite sermons had a fairly simple outline.

  God is good.

  Life can be hard.

  God is still good.

Basically it acknowledges that God is a loving, kind and good God.  He is able to help us, and to bless us in a variety of ways.  Yet, life can be difficult.  There can be times of great trial and stress.  Terrible things can happen.  Yet, in all things, and at all times,  God is still good.  God is always with us, and in his presence we can find ‘fullness of joy’.  God also gives to us wisdom and strength for today and hope for tomorrow.  We may not understand why things happen as they do, but we can trust that God knows what is going on, and that he is with us through it all.
