God is Good

It's no secret to anyone that I'm in a valley right now. I spend a lot of time thinking about my pain, praying about my paint, and talking about my pain. It's helpful to process through it all because I feel like when I do, I leave that much more of it behind me.

But while those things can be helpful to dealing with heartache, they can also be detrimental to the rest of your soul. It's easy to be so consumed by your pain that you start defining the world, and God, through it, and that picture is never ever accurate.

So I've been trying to discipline myself to focus on Who God is, and praise Him accordingly. He Is Who He Is, independent of me and my circumstances. 

God is good
God is just
God is kind
God is merciful
God is faithful
God is trustworthy
God is creative
God is beautiful
God is intelligent
God is logical
God is compassionate
God is sovereign
God is omnipotent
God is omniscient
God is forgiving
God is gracious
God is Redeemer
God is friend
God is loving
God is jealous
God is creator
God is righteous
God is healer
God is patient
God is shepherd
God is life
God is mighty
God is strong
God is powerful
God is provider
God is generous
God is most high
God is everlasting
God is peace
God defends
God disciplines
God protects
God saves
God sanctifies
God is not wasteful
He knows the beginning from the end
He knows every hair on my head
God is worthy of my praise
God is Father
God is Spirit
God is Son
God is I Am
God is Lord



  1. Amen, Jen. I know this is a hard season for you. I am glad to see you making the choice to choose faith. It really is a choice and act of our will! I pray that your choice will bring you and your family tangible expressions of love and abundance from God : ) Hugs!

  2. God is good. We all go through valleys, but remembering that is key.

    Prayers and Godspeed!

  3. I've been in quite a funk lately too following our own failed embryo transfer (transfer was the day after yours). Similarly, I have been doing a lot of reflecting and praying, trying to gain forward movement in my life again. Just recently, I started a "Journal of Thankfulness". Basically, every night before you go to bed, you record three things from that day that you are thankful for. After 365 days of thankfulness, you'll have amassed a list of over 1000 joys in life. It's been a challenge so far, but I really want to walk myself out of this valley (with God's help, of course). Prayers!
