When is God good?


In Sunday school after almost every lesson the story teller or I will say to the children, " when is God good?!"...and the children reply "ALL THE TIME!!!'

It's a fun thing to do to get them excited about what God s doing in their little lives; but it's true for adults as well. As you know, Stephen and I have been praying vigorously for another job that pays more so we can get married sooner and that he actually likes. Rejection, after rejection, after rejection, Stephen continued to pursue God's will and became very skilled at applying for jobs and being patient. Long nights of venting frustration and sometimes small arguments arose from hopelessness and fatigue. We prayed, and continued to seek God's direction and sovereignty over our lives together and in our careers individually.

Well dear friends, the same day that I was told I would be promoted to full time, Stephen received a job offer for a great company in Irvine. If that isn't great news enough, he will be receiving more money even starting out, he will be doing something he loves, we will be working the same hours ( we can have a normal schedule for once!) and his office is located not more than 10 minutes away from my Preschool. We have talked over a wedding date with immediate family and the wedding party. We will be getting married on the 12th of May, 2012.

When is God good? All the time, indeed. All the time.

Psalms 31:19

"How abundant are the good things
that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
on those who take refuge in you."

  1. Mm love this! One thing we've started doing in my family is ending our prayers by saying, "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever!" What a good reminder!
