The Good God // The Weekend Brew — 40 Comments

  1. God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good! Even when we don’t see it…He is there, in control. That brings me great comfort. “In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.” Psalm 94:19. Thank you for the great linkup Barbie, be blessed! ♥

  2. Yes indeed, He is good, all the time. It’s hard to see when circumstances are not as we would like. But those are the times when we have to trust the goodness of His heart towards us, even when we can’t see how His hand is moving in our situation. Thanks for the encouragement, Barbie!

  3. “There is GOOD to be found even in hard circumstances.” Barbie this is such a simple truth yet, at times it is difficult to embrace. Thank you for your reminder that God is good.

  4. Thanks for sharing these inspirational words to us, Barbie–yours as well as those amazing verses from scripture! I don’t know how we can be as insecure as we often are, when God is so clear about His love for us. Thanks so much for the linkup!

  5. Your post reminded me of a quote from the beautiful Miss Kara Tippetts. Kara said, “The absence of suffering in my life is not my good. The nearness of God is my great, great good!” AMEN!

  6. Oh, yes! He is good even when we are not. We are not the prodigal children, He is our prodigal Father. For He loves us with no limits and no reservations. 🙂

    Have a fantastic weekend, Barbie!

    Thanks for leaving us another wonderful link up party for the weekend.

  7. I’m really enjoying this series, Barbie. A good reminder that Truth must reign over our feelings and emotions, sometimes even over what we “see” – we must remember what Is. Have a blessed day!

  8. Beautiful Barbie!
    I especially loved the verse from James 1. I have read it before but for some reason it really resonates with me today that every good and perfect gift comes from above. Our lives are full of gifts from God which we don’t always recognize because we are caught up in what is wrong instead of what is right in our lives.
    Thank you for giving me a reason to thank God for His goodness today. Love you!

    • It is all about perspective, isn’t it? Even in the most trying of circumstances, He leaves us good gifts to find, hidden treasures, if we would but open our eyes. Hugs!

  9. Barbie, this has been such a wonderful series. This right here so so good >>> “There is good to be found even in hard circumstances.” Amen! There is good to be found even in hard circumstances because even in hard circumstances God is with us! So very encouraging! Blessings!

  10. It is so easy to fall into that pattern of thinking that because life is spinning out of control, God must not be good or present, caring or compassionate. Thank you for this reminder that He is good, faithful, and true, Barbie. He and his Word never change or fail.

    • That’s so true Abby. Which is why it’s important to remember who He is and to keep our eyes on Him. Looking forward to reading your post.

  11. Amen Barb >>>>>”There is GOOD to be found even in hard circumstances.” ♥ God is able to work through conditions and bad situations to fulfill His purposes in our life and in the world. When we experience suffering, we can respond in faith and trust God to work all things together for good! ♥

    Have a beautiful and blessed weekend!
    Denise ♥

  12. Barbie, we so need reminders of God’s goodness, because our hearts are so uncertain about what “good” means. Blessings to you this weekend, and thanks for hosting this link up.
