God's Been Good to Me

My children have a favorite saying that says, "God is good all the time. All the time, God is good." It makes my heart sing when I hear them say it to one another. One of them will be scared about something and the other one will say it to help relieve their fears. Or at a random moment of the day, my three year old will start saying it as she walks through the house. It's such a beautiful reminder of how God is, even when I start to doubt how I am feeling at the moment.

What are all of the ways that God has been good to me?

  • He has provided for all of my needs
  • He has blessed me beyond measure
  • He gave His one and only son to take the punishment for my sins
  • He never leaves me nor forsakes me
  • He wants good things for me 
  • He gave me a purpose for my life
  • He made me in His image
And I could go on! 

So often, I get to thinking about my existence or how I can't keep up with life. I get on the "hating who I am" mindset and start to build a negative attitude. Boy, is that a wrong outlook to have on oneself. It's not about me. It's not about what I think is wrong with me. It's about God and how good He has been to me. It's about what he has done for me. It's about the miracle of creation.  He created me and called me by name to go forth to deliver the good news. 

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. 

We all need to be reminded that no matter what hard things come our way, He is good through it all. It is not just during the easy days but through the hard days too. So when we feel like we are at the end of our ropes, recite that saying to be reminded of His goodness. 

Happy Good Friday!

One of my favorite songs:


  1. What a great list you made of how God has been good to you!:)

  2. Amen and Amen! I love that saying also... and this one: God is a good God, and He is in a good mood! That one can blow your mind too! Happy Easter!

    1. I hope you had a wonderful Easter too! I so enjoyed your FMF video!

  3. I love how your kids repeat the God is good phrase to each other :). And you're right--God is good and kind all of the time--and what might look like a dark day to us is all part of his plan. We just have to keep trusting!

    1. Amen! Yes, we do have to keep trusting. That is something that is not always easy to do as we go through life. But it really makes a big difference. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Wow, thanks for that! What wonderful thoughts shared here on your blog!

  5. God is so good....God is so good...God is so good....He's so good to me. Love that child song. We need that. We need Him. Thank you for stopping by my blog this week and for this reminder/tune in my head. Happy Easter to you and your family! FMF friend, Jenn

    1. Ah , yes! That is another favorite child tune. I grew up listening to my Wee Sing cassette tape and that was one of the songs on there. Thanks for reminding me of that one, Jennifer!
