Illuminating stories that look life's troubles head-on and see a good God behind, above, and in it all.
Anyone who doesn't have a settled confidence in God's steadfast goodness will be riddled with chronic doubts and weakling faith when life turns cruel. The view of God is distorted. This devotional studies God's absolute goodness. Each chapter includes Scripture, a quote, vivid anecdoes and concluding prayer. Provides encouragement, comfort and hope.
This plagued soil we call earth needs a good God to keep it going. Otherwise we would become an endangered species. His goodness upholds us all, whether we acknowledge it or not.
It is God alone who can tell us what goodness is. Immersed in a monstrous drama of human cruelties and sorrows, we don't have the right perspective. We know by looking at creation that His goodness does not eliminate pestilence and parasites, problems and pain. But a day of enlightenment, largeness and liberty is coming. We, as well as all creation, wait for better days.
