The Goodness of God

I need to write about this today.  God knows that I do and He knows why I need to be reminded of His goodness.

The goodness of God is infinitely more wonderful than we will ever be able to comprehend.
- A.W. Tozer

All that is good, all that is true, all that is beautiful, all that is beneficent, be it great or small,  be it perfect or fragmentary, natural as well as supernatural, moral as wells as material, comes from God.
- John Henry Newman

We walk without fear, full of hope and courage and strength to do His will, waiting for the endless good which He is always giving as fast as He can get us able to take it in.
- George MacDonald

Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in His Word. There is no other hope in the world.
- David Wilkerson

No matter how I feel - the truth remains. Where God has me is a good place. Because I may feel a certain way, I may fail to see that.  My feelings do not dictate what is true. The truth is: God is Good. Life is hard, monotonous, and difficult, but God is good.  I am at home all day, but God is good.  I sometimes wake up with a headache, but God is good.  God is good - nothing is too bad that His goodness cannot overcome.

Rest in that. Meditate on His goodness today.  I am not going to try and find the good things in my life (I know what they are).  I am going to try and rest and be comforted with the simple, but profound fact that my
God is good. 

Psalm 34:8-9 "O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him. O fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him."
