God is good ALL the time
I often read "God is good as He allows me to be a SAHM".
God is good all the time, even when you are not a SAHM.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. (Psalm 136:1)
We must accept whatever situation God places us in and thank God for his goodness no matter whether you are a SAHM or not. We must not question or doubt His decision as He always knows best. And sometimes the path we are led down doesn't make any sense until much much later and to be honest, it does not need to make sense to anyone else but God.
So the next time you say God is good for letting you be stay at home, remember if you were heading off to the office each day, likewise, you would say God is Good.
So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.
And if God has other plans for you, whether that is working outside the home, sending your children to school, unable to have children, being faced with an illness, living with a difficult husband or the many other trials that we face - we need to still praise the Lord and give thanks. God is good even when we face this difficulties.
I could grumble everyday and complain that God hasn't allowed me to stay at home but that is saying that God has got it wrong. Has He? No, He never gets it wrong. So each morning you and I need to say:
God is good
and He is in control.
For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations. (Psalm 100:5)
I choose to go off to work with a joyful heart and I choose to like my job. I choose not to grumble and I choose to find the positive in what I do. And I rely on God to make sure it all works, and it does if you trust Him, it does and I am not just saying that, it really does all fall into place.
God is GOOD.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
