The Good Things in Life, Shared Words of the Heart by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

The Good Things in Life...

What are the good things in life?

Popcorn at the movies?

A good book and a glass of wine?

A 25% raise in salary? A clean bill of health? Money back from the IRS?

What about the leaks under the slab... or a broken lawn mower?

Or what about that bad cold last month?

It is so easy to believe the 'good things' in life are from God and to be delighted when they come our way.  It is easy to pray and give thanks to Him for those 'good things.'

What about those difficult things we face in life? Are they not part of God's gifts as well?

God's gifts can come in what we might find as "painful packages" at times.  We often overlook that those packages are still part of His plan for us.   If you belong to God and He lives in your heart, He will use all things in your life to strengthen you and make your life richer. No matter where you are, He is there with you.

It takes our faith in Him to be confident that no matter what is happening in our lives right now is exactly what is suppose to be. What we find as difficult circumstances will pass, we will be stronger from the journey and then it is time for us to share with others 'the good things in life.'

God is good all the time.

Words from my heart,

Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.--Mark 5:34
