The Earth is Full of the Goodness of the Lord!

“The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord!”
     -Psalm 33:5

Amid weariness and discouragement,
the Lord is good!
     Amid pain and unanswered questions,
            God’s character has not changed—he is still good!

When I wake in the morning,
            God’s mercies pour out anew on my day.
     As I lay down at night,
            I rest in the Almighty’s care.

When things go as I hoped,
            I clearly see the fingerprints of divine benevolence around me.
     If life turns out very differently than I expected,
            faith holds on to the essential goodness of our God!

All day long, I can walk in the certainty
            of his kindness in all that concerns me.
     Wherever I go and however life goes, I can say with confidence:
            “The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord!”
