God is always good


We visited a friend last week who is going through some tragic events. On that same day, I saw a bio on Instagram which read "God is always good." I remembered a story in a book I am reading (Brazen by Sean Feucht, really good by the way) about how the death of his young friend changed his life and how the young girl's father was an example of faith and fortitude at the funeral. It is when tragic moments hit, that people who have practiced small moments of faith and fortitude in everyday decisions and habits can show their true colors. Or rather, God's true colors of love, peace and joy. 

It got me to thinking, am I able to say "God is always good"? In life's most tragic moments, like that father at his young daughter's funeral, or Mary in the Pietá, am I able to say, "God is always good?"

"We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose." Rm 8:28

Omnia in bonum
