Incomprehensible Goodness

He forgives your sins—every one.
He heals your diseases—every one.
He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence.
Psalm 103:3-5 (MSG)

I ponder His goodness.

It is incomprehensible to me.

How is it that I could deserve such

abundance in my life?

Good health, happiness, a loving husband,

healthy children, grandchildren and great-grandkids.

Still incomprehensible.

A roof over our heads, food in our bellies, insurance to

cover healthcare.

Why has He chosen us to bless

with so much goodness?

Read the Psalm verses above, friend.

Because He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

All we need to know.

All we need to accept.

609.  A negative ultrasound report — thank you, Lord.
610.  Beautiful summer days full of color and butterflies and bird sounds.

  1. Thank you for sharing! God truly is so very, very good. Sometimes just praising Him for His goodness is all that is necessary to turn around a day where I am leaning toward self-pity, whining and complaining. Again, thanks! Those I interact with today will be grateful too 🙂


  2. It’s hard for me to understand sometimes why God would bless me so when I see others so desperately in need. I appreciate how you summed this up. He is God. And that’s all I need to know.


    • Mary Beth, what a joy to welcome you to my blog. Difficulty understanding God’s gifts is often a stumbling block for me because I see so many who need things more than I or suffer greater burdens than I. And then I remember, it isn’t my choosing but His. I dropped in to visit your blog, and I love it there, especially your mission and goals in blogging. I’ve chosen to follow you on Facebook. See you around!
