Your Monday Muse featuring Crowder_April 2021
He is Good. He is God. He is Almighty.
Lately, I’ve been a bit bogged down in all the things that have been stressful…school changes, family struggles, work overwhelm. My head hurts, my heart is heavy, and my feelings are gray and dreary. I say things like “Why me?“, “Nothing good is happening“, “Where is God in all this?” I let my emotions and hurts control my thoughts and drown out the truth that I have written in my heart of hearts.
I know I’m not alone. When all around us feels like sinking sand, it’s easy to forget all the good things that God does for us on a daily, weekly, monthly basis.
God placed a roof over our heads.
He puts food on our table.
God gives us transportation to and from our home when we need it.
He supplies what we need when we need it.
God heals us when we are sick and not feeing well.
He provides for our family in so many ways.
God protects us as we move through our day and night.
He hears my prayers, loves me despite my mistakes, and gives grace when I don’t deserve it.
I may struggle with the feelings I have, but my feelings don’t change the FACTS … He is GOOD. He is the one and only GOD. He is ALMIGHTY. Always and forever.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:17
God you are good and I am so grateful for the blessings you give no matter what I feel or what I’ve done. Thank you Jesus for being good to me and to my family even when I may be overwhelmed with the day to day of life. You’re grace and mercy sustain me and I’m blessed. Amen.
