God is GOOD!

"Let's never forget that some of God's greatest mercies are His refusals.  He says no in order that He may, in some way we cannot imagine, say yes.  All His ways with us are merciful.  His meaning is always love"
Elisabeth Elliot

God is GOOD!

"For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; "because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name."
Psalm 91

God is GOOD!

"His purpose is perfectly timed."
Beth Moore

God is GOOD!

For EVERYTHING comes from Him and exists by His power and is intended for His glory.  All glory to Him forever! Amen."

God is GOOD!

"Refresh yourself in the Peace of My Presence.  This Peace can be your portion at all times and in all circumstances."
Jesus Calling Devotional

God is GOOD!

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have (perfect) peace and confidence.  In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer (take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted)!  For I have overcome the world. (I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.)"
John 16:33

God is GOOD!

"Go as far as you can see;  when you get there, you'll be able to see farther."
J.P. Morgan

God is GOOD!

ALL of these are verses or quotes that I came across TODAY. God is GOOD! Just today. Since 6:00 this morning.  16.5 hours.  All those wise and comforting words.  As if I needed MORE proof of God's love and watch-care over me!  Yet, HE continues to POUR it out.  Abundantly MORE than I could ask or think!  MY GOD is AMAZING!  

God is GOOD!

Today was back to work and school.  It was hard to get back in the routine. 

 Two girls don't feel good :(  I HATE having sick kids.  I've always hated having sick kids.  I'm a worrier.  I worry when I have sick kids.  This time, I'm "alone" with sick kids.  But, I'm not really alone.  I still "feel" Rick here with me - comforting me, and reassuring me (he was much less of a worrier than I - and I believe I have gained some of his "peace"!).  GOD is also here with me.  As if I could doubt THAT with the reassurances HE gave me AGAIN today!  And if the above reassurances weren't enough, when I got home tonight (at 9:45 - after going to Iron Mountain for a basketball game), there was a sweet card from my awesome Aunt & Uncle - and a check for us!  I had no sooner opened the card and showed it to Taya when one of my dear friends came to pick up her daughter who had ridden to the basketball game with us - and she had with her a plate of cupcakes and supper for tomorrow night - all we have to do is pop it in the oven!  Aaahhhh!  Have I mentioned that  God is GOOD!?!

So, it's late, tomorrow is another BUSY day with work and getting ready for a Town Board meeting on Thursday night, so I had better get myself settled in for the night.  Again tonight, as I lay my head on my pillow, I will rest in peace.  In the assurance that God has not left or forsaken us.  In HIS unending LOVE for us - in ALL circumstances.  In the knowledge that right up to the last second of his  life on earth, we know Rick LOVED us and we him.  I will rest well because God is GOOD . . . All the time, and All the time, God is GOOD!
