God is Good!

It’s impossible to exaggerate the Goodness of God! 

In my own study on the goodness of God I found 61 verses in the Bible, Old and New Testaments, about God’s continuing goodness. There are so many more. 
These verses are written by people who have known and personally experienced God’s goodness. Some of these passages of scripture were written in the most dire situations,  circumstances some of us would find hard to imagine; yet these people could say with absolute confidence, “The Lord is good

The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works [the entirety of things created]. Psalm 145:9
For the Lord is good; His mercy and lovingkindness are everlasting, His faithfulness [endures] to all generations. Psalm 100:5
O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34
Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is [essentially] good [by nature] except God alone. Mark 10:18

*All verses from the Amplified Version

Although God’s goodness is often beyond our human ability to understand, it is never beyond our ability to personally experience.

It’s God’s desire to lavish His goodness on you and He issues a personal invitation to you to come to Him – to personally know and experience His goodness! 

O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good; How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who takes refuge in Him. O [reverently] fear the Lord, you His saints (believers, holy ones); For to those who fear Him there is no want. The young lions lack [food] and grow hungry, But they who seek the Lord will not lack any good thing. Psalm 34:10

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
