"For I am the Lord, I change not.." Malachi 3:6a

I saw a sign yesterday that said, "Life is good". The reality of it is that life isn't "always" good. Sometimes life can hand you some pretty "bad" things-- grief, pain, heartache. Things in life don't always go good. All our days are not always filled with sunshine. But when life isn't treating you so good, there is something that you need to remember-- "God is still good, all the time".

Life is full of good times, and God is good in the good times. Life is full of bad times, but God is still good in the bad times. Life has times of sunshine, God is good in the sunshine. Life has dark, stormy times, but God is still good in the stormy times. Sometimes it's raining, sometimes it's painful, sometimes there are valleys, deserts and night, but God is still good. Just because life went from good to bad doesn't mean that God changed. He is still the same.

There is a word I want you to remember and add to your vocabulary as you face life, that word is "still". This wonderful God who is good, is not only good when things are going good, when there is plenty of money for bills, when you have a job, when your body is not sick, when your relationships are fine, when you have food on your table, etc., is "STILL" good when you're sitting in the dark, when all have forsaken you, when there is no money, when there is no food, when there is no job, when there is nothing- when it all looks bad. Like the song says, "The God of the good times, is still God in the bad times. The God of the day, is still God in the night."

Have a great day. God is STILL good all the time.
