And If Not

And if not, He is still good.

I’m going to say it again,

Tattoo it on your heart, write it on your mirror, ink it on your skin::::::

And if not He is STILL good.

Even when life is bad.

He is still good even if I never receive the answers my heart is scrambling for.

He is still good even if I never see full restoration in an area that desperately needs it.

He is still good even if the sun never comes out again.

He is still good even if I am wronged a hundred times over.

He is still good even if I face disappointments and setbacks.

He is still good even if my life doesn’t go anywhere near how I planned.

He is still good even if I never see a picture perfect ending on this side of Heaven.

My hope is not in this side of things, it’s in the next. I know there is joy and whimsy and hope that is so uncontainable for the things to come. I know there is a place where I am fully loved and fully known. And that is where my hope is.

So why do I fear?

“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

-Psalm 23:6
