God Is So Good








God is so good, and so good is God. I just want to climb up on the roof of my apartment building, and start shouting out praises to my Father. He wakes me with a gentle hug each morning, helps me to start my day right. He prepares me for the day ahead, and stays close by my side throughout the day. At night, He tenderly tucks me into bed, listens to my prayers, and then stands guard over me as I sleep. What would my life be like without Him? I do not even want to imagine that, I would be a lost, and useless vessel. But, with Him, I am a very happy, contented, joy filled vessel. I praise You my Father, today, tomorrow, and all the days of my life.

Love the post. I often think God walks with me and carries my burdens. I wonder how much he carries I nevre knew about because he is protecting me.

I just love your heart for the Lord my dear friend. You are a humble reminder of how we all should praise Him, even when we are facing difficulties. I always feel so guilty when I visit your page - and I mean that in a GOOD WAY lol. Here I am, in my new townhouse, freaking out about getting it clean and organized for my mother to come over next weekend and Im literally in tears because I have mismatched furnature, nothing matches, Brians stuff is EVERYWHERE, and I have a sink full of dishes to do that he left me, dinner to make, no washing machine or dryer to do our piles of laundry....

...and then I remember my friend, you. Suffering as you are with your medical conditions but with such a joyful heart that nothing else matters but praising His name for His blessings and love He pours out. Thank you for reminding me how to REALLY view life...LOVE YOU MY FRIEND!
