Monday Moment: Remembering Goodness, Love, and Faithfulness

For the LORD is good;
His steadfast love endures forever,
and His faithfulness to all generations.
-Psalm 100:5


It's not that we don't know. It's just that we forget. We get busy. Or discouraged. Or tired. We get dragged down by bills. By regrets. By loss. And some days, we just forget. We forget that the Lord is good. That His love is steadfast and endures.

And it does. We know that. It's just that we're foolish sometimes... or ungrateful other times... and we forget. We forget to look at our lives through the promise that God is good. That life can't change His goodness or His love or His faithfulness.

Maybe life's easy right now. Maybe it's not. Maybe you feel God's love and His hand in your life. Maybe you don't. Here's the thing: our feelings and circumstances... these hats we're wearing now... are temporary. They won't hang about forever. But God will. Along with His goodness and faithfulness and love, God will.

Remember that. Remember it today. Don't let life deplete or rob you of the hope and promise that's yours through Christ. The Lord is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations.

Monday Moment is a little devotional to help kick-start your week. See you again next time!

Brin,
Somehow I stumbled upon your blog awhile back and am now a regular reader. Your Monday Moment must have been meant for me today as I lost my job on Friday am a little down to say the least. My faith is strong but sometimes my patience is weak. Thanks for your words of encouragement.
