Let God's Goodness Reign in Your Hearts!

Praise the Lord!
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
    who greatly delights in his commandments!

(Psalm 112:1)

We find freedom and joy as we find delight in God's WORD embracing His goodness no matter what season or trial we face. His steadfast love and care is unchanging. His silence is not an absence. His amazing grace is our salvation!  The harsh realities of this world points us to the Sovereign Savior and the coming Kingdom!  
 May FAITH be awakened and renewed in our souls. 
May we be found faithful and true delighting daily in JESUS the CHRIST - the Word made flesh -  during the many seasons we venture through. 
There is a time for everything.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;

a time to kill, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

a time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

a time to seek, and a time to lose;

a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

a time to tear, and a time to sew;

a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

a time to love, and a time to hate;

a time for war, and a time for peace.

What gain has the worker from his toil? I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. 
I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God's gift to man.
I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him.  (Ecclesiastes 3)

Do not grow weary in doing good…
Cast your cares upon the LORD for He cares for you.
He sees, He hears, He rescues the poor, needy and oppressed.
TRUST His Goodness.
He makes everything beautiful in its time.
