God is Good

As I look back, I am quickly reminded of God's faithfulness. As I travel the road of life, I have found what seems to be valleys & mountains along the way. On the part of the road that is going over the mountain, I see the beauty around me, & life seems wonderful. However, this is , also, the time that is so easy for me to lose sight of God. I have found it is harder to remember to cling to the Lord in the times of good which is why it is so important to take time to fellowship with other believers & be regular in my church attendance. I feel this helps me to keep God foremost in my mind. When things seem to be following the road through the valley, it can seem lonely & difficult, yet I have found these to be the times that I, also, feel the closest to the Lord. These are the times I will cling to the Lord as I see no other way to make it through. These are, therefore, the times I have felt closest to the Lord. As I look back, I can see that those are the times I grew most in the Lord. This is why it is so important to remember to praise the Lord in the good times & what seems to be the bad time. Ps. 63:1-5
