God is Good to All

Psalm 145:9 ESV “The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.

Psalm 145:9 BSB “The LORD is good to all; His compassion rests on all He has made.

I love the wording in both of these versions, so I decided to post them both. God’s goodness is something that I have become even more aware of in recent years. His goodness is always present. However, there are times we may fail to see it, especially when we are going through trials. We must stay intentional about asking God to open our eyes to see His goodness, so that we can avoid feelings of discontentment and discouragement.

Learning to be thankful is a major part of seeing God’s goodness. So when we have thankful hearts, we are more in tune with the way God is working in our lives, the lives of those we love, and in the world around us. We can better see the blessings He gives us everyday.

Thank you again, for your prayers after the loss of my mom. God’s goodness was certainly evident throughout the whole process of her illness and her death. The mercy and compassion He has shown me directly and through others, has left me amazed.

We are blessed that God chooses to be good to us and that His mercy and compassion rests on all that He has made.

  1. Staying intentional about focusing on God and being thankful during trials really helps me too Dawn. He is good but difficult times can make us struggle to see it. But knowing that he is there and is good and loves me is a truth I cling to.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your mother. That is a deep loss. A friend recently told me that she had learned the Hebrew meaning of the word “compassion.” It means to draw near, to come alongside. She said that compassion is not a feeling but a location, and for God the location he offers is to come near us in our hurts and griefs. Your words are so helpful to me, Dawn, as I often find myself forgetting to focus on thankfulness and gratitude. Thank you! And may the God of compassion be very real to you as you grieve.

  3. It is so good to see you posting once again, It is never easy when we loose someone like our mom regardless of any age, the loss of my own mother was hard at the age of fifteen. Once again I found myself on my knees in emotional pain as I found out about my younger brother’s death last month. For me I felt cheating because I never had the chance to say I love you to him or to hear his voice. Even through our loved ones are with the Lord is hard for us because of the pain of not seeing them. My prayers are with you always.

    1. Thank you Eileen. I can’t imagine losing mom at 15. And I am very sorry to hear about the death of your brother. And sorry you didn’t get to share final moments with him. You’re right it’s very hard. I’m still finding it hard to believe my mom is not here any longer. Thank you for your prayers. I am praying for you too. 💕🙏🏿

      1. Agree, for me I look back at pictures to remember and the one thing that comes to my mom was this after our Mom died my brother Mark was never the same, he was the youngest child our of seven, but when I saw him last he said to me thank you that I never gave up on him (I continue to love him) and more important thank you for leading me to Christ, I remember these words that he once told me. I found out from my niece that my brother died of suicided, I knew he was suffering from back injury and with the health care doctors drop patients left and right. For you Dawn I am sure you have wonderful memories of your mom, cling to them as you remember.
        Blessings my friend

      2. I’m glad you have those words that your brother said to remember. You touched his heart. Sorry to hear he was hurting so much and died by suicide. That’s a difficult thing for you and your family. You are in my prayers. Yes, I have countless memories of mom that I am very thankful for. Even having to go through the difficult process of her illness and death was a blessing in that I learned a lot and grew as a person. Death is sad but we can learn a lot from the experience. I miss her so much. Blessings to you my friend, thanks for sharing. ❤️
