God's Goodness Runs Like Clockwork

poppies

"Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Psalm 23:6

What runs like clockwork in your life?

Is it your morning routine? The sun rises, you wash your face, brush your teeth, and eat scrambled eggs, and then off to work you go.

Is it your kids' schedule? They need their lunch by noon, nap time naturally follows, and Daniel Tiger is the only way to get through that afternoon slump.

Or maybe the only thing consistent in your life these days is trash day, and when Tuesday rolls around, you roll out your can to the end of your drive, and as you come in from work, you bring it right back up.

As Christ-followers, there's more regularity to our day than we may know or even imagine. Whether it's been a bright or dark day, whether winter is lasting forever, or spring has already sprung, whether the tide is coming in or the waters are still, and whether or not your kids napped and ate all their peas, one truth remains.

As surely as the sun will rise, surely God's goodness and love will follow us all the days of our lives.

How do we know this? Psalm 23:6 declares it, and because God remains the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, we don't have to wonder if He's going to come through for us. We don't have to doubt that His grace surrounds us. And we don't have to fear that evil will conquer, that darkness will win, and that any piece of depressing news holds the final word.

No, we can hold our head up high in confident assurance that even in the darkest valley, His rod will lead us, and even in the presence of our enemies, He provides and our cup overflows. Don't allow the enemy to convince you otherwise because God Himself has made it an indisputable fact.

The Lord's goodness and love is here and it's coming. As His people, let us not waver but hold on tightly to the hope we profess—for He who promised is faithful.

    I’m turning 62 this year. I can hardly believe it myself. But, I’ve decided that I no longer want to live comfortably. I want to live with a spirit of adventure like I had in the past. To be unafraid of what’s new or different. I want to remain so open to the Spirit of the living God that his love compels me to go wherever he leads me.

    I am passionate about people leaning into all that Jesus is. You. Me. Us. Journeying together with God. This is my greatest blessing. And now that my kiddos are out on their own, I’m learning to navigate my new normal. And I am finding there is life after little ones and teens after all!

    I am currently finishing my degree in relational communications and plan to graduate in the spring of 2020!! I am thankful I have had time to grow, heal, appreciate a slower pace of living, and to invest more time into relationships with family, friends, and God. Through this process I am learning what I want to prioritize in my life and figuring out ways to make that happen. Most of all, I am figuring out that life is all about process, taking steps closer to where I want to be and celebrating the little victories but also accepting that there will be setbacks and disappointments along the way.
