God is Good all the Time...(Part 1)

...and all the time, God is good!

That is Ms Jordan's latest saying and I love to hear it. She initially used to say God is good sometimes however! But now she understands he is good all the time.

On Friday afternoon, I drove up to a gas station and started to pump gas. Then I got back in my truck and drove off, all the while with some troubling issues weighing heavily on my mind. About two minutes down the road, I noticed my gas tank was half full and not full and that's when it hit me that I never finished pumping. A quick check on my tank door revealed it was indeed open.

What to do? I turned around and headed back there, all the while expecting the worst because I was sure I had ripped the pump out or damaged my truck or something. When I got back there and surveyed the damaged, my truck was fine and the pump had finally stopped at $99, with most of that gas spilled on the floor of the gas station. The pump was still attached. I sighed with relief.

They were all so gracious and sweet and after making sure I was OK and back in my right mind, they let me go. Of course, I gave them my cell number.

And even as I started to question God about why, I immediately switched gears to thanking him instead for forestalling what could have been a disaster such as my truck or the station catching on fire or something huge that I am sure the devil planned. I did not have $99 to spare but it was a much lesser evil than what it could have spiralled to.

My dear people, there's always something to be thankful for and if you think you're alone, remember others are going through something too.

So once again I say, God is good all the time.




  1. I thank God for the major disappointment I got today. Even though I do not no what the next step should be or will look like (because am depending totally on God to determine) I thank Him all the same.
    Guess what? you just inspired thankfulness in me. Am glad you shared.

  2. Amen, God is good all the time and all the time God is good!

  3. Thank you ladies. It's so easy to wonder "why me?" and all but if we look around enough, there is so much to be thankful for: life itself; and I'm sure we can come up with a whole lot more. Blessings.

  4. Awww...I absolutely loved this,especially Jordan's (my dtr's namesake) statement about God being good some, oops! sorry,I meant all the time. Thank God you came away safe...that was close.

  5. Wow. BIG TESTIMONY right there. I definitely agree with you, God is good ALL THE TIME. The enemy tries desperately to make us think otherwise, he tries to cloud our memories from the good things God is working out in our lives right now, he wants us to focus on the bad...when in all TRUTH, the GOOD outweighs the BAD all the time.
