The Goodness Of God During Loss

photo-1451417379553-15d8e8f49cde

Loss of any kind is difficult. It takes time to process and heal. It takes time to see the good that God can bring out of it.

I’ve lost people in my life through death and them moving away. Each situation is hard in their own way. I’ve lost jobs and dreams have slipped through my hands. Loss comes in many shapes and sizes.

Loss is loss. No one loss is greater than the next. No one loss is greater than that of another. All of them require perspective and all of them require grieving. Losses, no matter how seeming large or small, should be mourned because on the other side, there will be a new normal.

Regardless of what type of loss I have faced in my life, there have been some aspects the Lord has been reinforcing to me. I’m beginning to lean on what I know to be true of God, whether or not I feel it’s true. His Word is our firm foundation. He is solid and true and unwavering.

 

God is good.

You are good and do good; Teach me Your statutes.” Psalm 119:68

God cannot do anything other than what is good. It goes against His nature. It’s who He is. He is the kindest Father there could ever be. He wants the best for us. He is willing to go to great lengths to lavish us with His very best. The losses in our lives may surprise us. But, they do not surprise Him. And before there was ever a loss in our lives, the Lord had already made a way to redeem it.

Worship Wednesday…Thy Will

“I’m so confused
I know I heard You loud and clear
So, I followed through
Somehow I ended up here

I don’t wanna think
I may never understand
That my broken heart is a part of Your plan
When I try to pray
All I’ve got is hurt and these four words

Thy will be done (x3)

I know You’re good
But this don’t feel good right now
And I know You think
Of things I could never think about

It’s hard to count it all joy
Distracted by the noise
Just trying to make sense
Of all Your promises
Sometimes I gotta stop
Remember that You’re God
And I am not
So

Thy will be done (X3)
Like a child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy will be done (X2)
Thy will

I know You see me
I know You hear me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Goodness You have in store

I know You hear me
I know You see me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Goodness You have in store
So

Thy will be done (X3)
Like a child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy will be done (X3)

I know You see me
I know You hear me, Lord
