Psalms | God is Good

I began reading through the Psalms at the beginning of February, and just finished up this week. A few months ago when I began journalling, I wanted to read through books of the Bible in their entirety, instead of jumping from book to book. I completed several smaller books before I decided to tackle the Psalms. It seemed like such a large undertaking, but it turned out to be something that changed my heart. Especially with such a large book, I felt like reading the whole thing together gave me such an amazing “big picture” perspective about what the Psalms are all about.

Since I have been journalling as well as using the #lampandlight hashtag each day, I was especially aware of what my “take away” was each day, and throughout these two months I have noticed a theme as so many days I would be impressed with the same thing…God is Good. I hear a message while I was in college preached on Psalm 73. It was one of those “so good I still remember the Pastor’s outline years later” kind of messages. It was about God’s goodness and the fact that the goodness of God is an eternal fact, no matter how bad things look or how I am feeling at the moment, I can know that God is good, and because I know that, I can’t help but praise Him.

Your kindness leads me to repentance
Your goodness draws me to Your side
Your mercy calls me to be like You
Your favor is my delight
Every day, I’ll awaken my praise
And pour out a song from my heart

You are good, You are good
You are good, and Your mercy is forever
You are good, You are good
You are good, and Your mercy is forever
You are good, and Your mercy is forever
