God is good, all the time.
That's what I was taught, that's what I say in church, that's what I believe.
But, what about those moments when you are forced to question? When the enemy steals in and takes something from you. When you lose. When the victory doesn't come.
What about then?
Can you still say it with the same conviction?
You know, I can say something and say something, I can think I believe, I can train and practice, but none of it matters until the moment comes when that thing I've been saying, that belief that I had, all comes into question. When the training is no longer practice but it is used and shown as an acquired skill. Mastery comes in usage.
Can I believe that He still has the best in mind for me, when I don't get what I've been praying for?
Can I trust that He's working it out even when the report is negative?
When my soul is seared with the pain
When the trouble comes
When the darkness falls and I can still say:
All the time, God is good.
