God is good!

God is good.

That saying is at the bottom of my emails. I believe it. Even when there are trying times.
I have to say that I just started this "God" thing in about 1999. I won't go into my whole story, but I grew up in the church, loved God, Jesus my whole life. But didn't start living it until I was 38.
Lot's of things about my life have changed. Especially the way I handle trials.
Oh, my!
It seems Satan has been on a fast-paced path to me and my husband these last couple of weeks. (These aren't trials between us, but against us-together). We've been through trying times before, but this time it's different. We have a firm foundation in what we believe and why we believe it.
When these trials have struck, we may have felt a momentary sense of defeat, but not long term. No. Not again. We are standing on the promises of God. And God is faithful, true and just. I won't let anything/anyone ever try to tell me otherwise.
So it's with a smile on my face and joy in my heart that I type this.
God is good.
All the time.

  3. Lindi,

    I know where you're coming from. Through the rough times we just hold on to God, and remember that He is indeed good!
