God is good

27 04 2011

In the midst of suffering and trials, I’m reminded that God is still good. And he answers prayers, even though it may be in ways I don’t expect or desire.

God gave much grace to me today. Thank you for whoever was praying for me to see God’s grace. It was much appreciated. Thank you God for your favor today: Good run around the block of Biola at lunch (even though it was 85, I didn’t faint and die, although at the time I may have wished that I had). People who smiled at me and talked to me as I walked across campus – quite a few random strangers with large smiles for no reason, loving me from afar. Beautiful, warm, sunny day. Nothing too broken at work, but enough things to do to keep me busy. People who were willing to listen and hug me. The realization of God’s great love and the way he is faithful.

I heard this song today and it was perfect. I like the whole thing, but the bold part was my favorite.

You Are Good
by Nichole Nordeman

When the sun starts to rise
And I open my eyes
You are good, so good
In the heat of the day
With each stone that I lay
You are good, so good

With ever breath I take in
I’ll tell you I’m grateful again
When the moon climbs high
Before each kiss goodnight
You are good

When the road starts to turn
Around each bend I’ve learned
You are good so good
And when somebody’s hand
Holds me up helps me stand
You are so good

With every breath I take in
I’ll tell You I’m grateful again
‘Cause its more than enough
Just to know I am loved
And You are good

So how can I thank You
What can I bring
What can these poor hands
Lay at the feet of a King
I’ll sing You a love song
It’s all that I have
To tell You I’m grateful
For holding my life in Your Hands

When it’s dark and it’s cold
And I can’t feel my soul
You are so good
When the world is gone gray
And the rain’s here to stay
You are still good

So with every breath I take in
I’ll tell You I am grateful again
And the storm my swell
Even then it’s well and You are good
