“God is good all the time and all the time God is good!” Don Moen
That is the first line of a very popular song that many of us have sung many times. Yet every time I sing or play it I find such peace in that truth knowing that God is in control and that He is so good!
The first verse says: “If you’re walking through the valley and there are shadows all around. Do not fear, He will guide you He will keep you safe and sound. He has promised to never leave you Nor forsake you, and His word is true”!
As the whole world deals with the seriousness of this deadly virus, COVID-19, we as Christians can take solace in a these words as we sing them out to Him. The lyrics the author used came strait from God’s Word – and His word is TRUE!
In my own career, I’ve been here many times. I’ve been through furloughs, layoffs, strikes, pay cuts and companies just going out of business as the result of the economy or some other issue. One thing that has been constant is that God has been faithful through it all. My wife and I had dedicated ourselves to trusting Him no matter what, and He never failed us – EVER. I remember one time when my airline failed that I had to get a job doing something. We had 2 small children and a mortgage to pay along with all the other bills associated with being responsible adults. I had no other skill other than to be a pilot, and there were a LOT of those looking for work then. We held on for several months until I took a part time job delivering pizzas. Even getting that job was hard to do. I’ll never forget leaving my house in my beat up pickup truck with a 1/4 tank of gas and maybe $3 left to my name – that was it. I came home that night with a full tank of gas, $100 from tips and 3 pizzas. Through it all, God was good. God was faithful. God was large and in charge. God showed His love for us and led us through that phase in our lives. I will never stop testifying of His goodness, mercy and grace that He gives freely to all who love Him!
Yes my friends, God is good all the time and all the time God is good!!
