Sharing Our Faith Together

The Goodness of God

Psalm 100 v 1-5
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

There are times in our lives when we can find It all a bit of a struggle. Whether it is our personal situations or concerns for the needs of others, our community issues or the troubles of the world, we may find it hard to praise God for his goodness.

It is on occasions like this that it is important to put our trust in God and step out in faith. Looking back at those moments when we have been blessed by God’s goodness can be really encouraging.

As I write these words Chris and myself have indeed had several of those days when we have truly known the goodness of God as we have spent precious time together with all our family, making us very proud parents and grandparents.
