During Bible-study tonight, my leader said something that stuck with me: God knew you long before you even thought about Him. Isn’t that a cool thing to think about? It makes you feel so known.
When I got home, I turned on my ipod and started doing my math homework and the song “The Goodness of God” came on. As I listened to the lyrics, I felt a sense of peace and contentment that God truly knows me and wants the best for me. The song says…
My God is a giver.
An overflowing river, pouring His lavish love on us.
Season after season we give Him every reason to stop but He never does.
The goodness of God is flooding my heart with peace.
The goodness of God is bringing me to my knees.
My God is a father who ransoms sons and daughters.
Pouring His costly love on us. His greatest treasure given so that we may be forgiven.
His son crushed to make us whole.
