The goodness of God endureth continually.”– Psalm 52:16

My parents are both still alive, and I am very grateful for both of them. I try to visit them as much as I can. Time is precious with them. We have thirteen grandchildren, and we try to see them as often as we can as well. Time with them is precious because they are growing up very quickly right before our eyes. God’s goodness is continually before us with our family. But, there are some times in ministry that we are so busy traveling that we can’t always be there for them or with them. It would be very easy for us to become bitter, or upset because of ministry responsibilities. There are times that we miss birthdays, school programs, grandparents day, the birth of little ones, funerals (which can be very hard), or being there when they are going through difficult times. During these times, I must stop and pray and ask the Lord to help them. God is showing me that He cares for them so much more than I ever could. I must daily give my parents, our children, and our grandchildren over to the Lord. God will show Himself mighty and strong. He is always working. His goodness is amazing.

There are times that I feel as if I can’t keep up with things at home. Housework, outside work, and little projects are often put “on hold.” As I am writing this article, I am overwhelmed with the goodness of God through friends. We have cameras on our home, and are right now (while we are away at a conference) seeing four friends at our home, cleaning up our yard, and mulching our flowerbeds. We witness the goodness of God being lived out through these friends. Is it worth leaving family and friends and loved ones to serve the Lord? Yes! God has proved Himself faithful to send others to fill in for us, or to meet the need for family.

He will also send special angels to help you when you are very discouraged. God’s goodness is continually before you. Just open your eyes and your heart, and you will see it everywhere.

God is good all the time – All the time God is good!
