Add Lemons to Taste

God is good all the time.

I like to keep things positive here at the Kitchen Table Blog, as much because there’s enough negative stuff in the world without bringing it onto this site. But there really is no way around the truth: I had a difficult week last week. I won’t go into all of the details (as much because there’s enough negative stuff in the world…) but just know that I would rather have my molars removed without novocaine than ever experience last week again.

So let’s get to the positive part.

God is good. All the time. We like to ascribe good things to God’s providence, don’t we? God provided money for the groceries. God spared us from the accident. God kept the children healthy last month.

It is much harder for us, for whatever reason, to ascribe the difficult things to God’s providence. God allowed our car to break down. God caused me to be flat on my back with illness for a month. God, in His goodness, brought me to my knees in dependence on Him.

But God is good. All the time.

This week–whether life serves us lemons or lemonade–let us thank our good God for His goodness to us.
