Summer Devotional August 2nd, 2017

1 Corinthians 13:4-8:  “Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.”

I know most of you know this one, but it’s the apex of God and who He is.  We need reminded of this daily.  Love (God is love) never fails.  Love (God) is patient and kind.  Love (God) is not easily angered.  Love (God) perseveres.

With God, we can do anything, be anything, achieve anything.  His plans are perfect and all we need to do is trust.

This is a beautiful song about love and God and this video has some cool quotes from famous people.  Enjoy!

God is Good

GOD IS GOOD

“God is Good”
Miracles are everywhere
Cannot be misunderstood
I just have to be aware

There is the miracle of birth
Every time a child is born
I am amazed as I observe
How perfectly it’s formed

What is this feeling called “love”
That is something I didn’t learn
A bit of God placed in me
Another miracle confirmed

Each morning as I awake
I see the sun, what did it take
Another miracle I see
Once more aware that it is He

When I look up at the stars
I see the master of the universe
I feel a burst right in my heart
Another miracle occurs

Hundreds of books that it would take
Of why I say that “God Is Good”
You never cease to amaze
I worship and I praise

COMMENT

Life can be hard, but God Is Good.
I have experienced God’s goodness in my
life when I was going through the worst
kind of grief.

I doubted His goodness.

Then came His compassion, so great a love
that my tears turned to joy.

Whatever He does has a purpose. No matter
what I am going through I trust Him. His
mercy will follow.

He is my creator, He loves me, every breath
I take is given to me by Him.

God does not change.
God is good.

Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today
and forever

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God
works for the good of those who love
him, who have been called according
to his purpose
