God is Good


So maybe I’m a bit critical of those who inconvenience me.
And, sure I should be appreciated for the sacrifices I make for those I love.
Don’t judge me for multi-tasking and mentally making a to-do list during worship.  I’m a busy girl!

Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his,
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

I’d be happy today if my life looked like my friends on Facebook.
Doesn’t anyone understand how hard my life is?
God must not like me. God must be mad at me.

For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

Self-centered is the opposite of thankfulness.

How thankful I am God doesn’t change based on His moods or circumstances.  It’s so easy to get wrapped up in ourselves – so easy to turn our focus inward.  But no matter where our thoughts are- God is still God. God is still good.

When I turn my focus off my circumstances and back to God, I am overwhelmed with thankfulness. How glad I am God’s goodness isn’t defined by my understanding of it.  I cling tightly to God’s goodness – no matter what I may think or feel at the moment.

 

Psalms 100

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his,
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations
