How could it be otherwise? Because He is good.
He IS good. Good IS God. His essence is goodness.
Godness is goodness.
God puts the "oo" in goodness.
Indescribable. Uncontainable. Ooooo!
From the creation of the universe to the structure of our bodies to every event allowed in our lives. Meant for good.
Even when from our perspective it seems terrible. Horrible. No good. Very bad.
Good. Because God equals good.
I found this note tucked between the pages of a Gideon Bible at the Ritz Carlton in Detroit.
I shared it on Facebook. And my friend, Lea, commented:
"How cute is that? You know, what a great idea that is. If every person of faith wrote a quick testimonial to the goodness of God and stuck it in the back of a hotel Gideon Bible, nonbelievers could be personally witnessed to by finding it. I believe God's Word is illuminated best by the earnest stories of believers about the real power of God to change lives. You've prompted me to start a movement, Snady."
A testimonial to the goodness of God, sometimes recognized only in hindsight, because He does what is fitting or suitable in season--even though it doesn't exactly feel good at the time.
Because God is good. All the time. All the time. God is good!
He is indescribable and uncontainable! Ooooo!
"Your marvelous doings are headline news; I could write a book full of the details of your greatness. The fame of your goodness spreads across the country; your righteousness is on everyone's lips." Psalm 145:6-7
Will you help spread the fame of His goodness? Will you join Lea's Gideon Goodness Movement?
