music monday// God is good

there're seasons where i need God the most and it seems He checked out on me. i believe we've all faced these kinds of seasons at some point in life. it's like dry spell all around, and the doubts come crashing in, threatening to make you question the goodness and ever-constant presence of our really good Father. 
i love how accurate this song captures the season or moments when unbelief creeps up on us, and how we need to continue telling our souls that despite the current circumstances, despite the unimaginable, totally unforeseen details of the hurt we face, God is good! He works ALL things for our good, not just the obviously good things, but the bad, messy, ugly, painful things too.

God is good~ dustin kensrue
even when it seems the answer's no, the promises of God all find their yes
in Christ who worked the Father's will below, that all who run to Him would find their rest.
and even when it seems He hides His face, and darkness seems to be our only friend,
we look to Christ who suffered in our place, that one day all our suffering would end.

God is good all of the time, all of the time God is good.
God is good all of the time, all of the time God is good.

and even when it seems He pays no mind, we have a guarantee of His great love,
in Christ who came and left His crown behind, that one day we would reign with Him above.

Lord, we believe but help our unbelief.
Lord, we believe, but help our hearts to sing 

that You are good all of the time, all of the time You are good
You are good all of time, all of time You are good..

Lord, You are good.

"for we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." romans 8:28

"be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." romans 12:12

"you intended to harm me[joseph], but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." genesis 50:20

"'...everything is possible for one who believes.' immediately the boy's father exclaimed, 'i do believe, help me overcome my unbelief!' " mark 9:23-24

our Father is not going to waste whatever experience or situation you face. He will use ALL for your good + His glory. whatever you are facing, Jesus overcame it on the cross, trust Him to lead you through. i pray you get to look back and laugh in awe at how God's hand was present in your life+story, in the details, working and turning the downright messy + the good into something really beautiful. He IS good. He IS near. He IS here.

much love
