Goodness and Blessing

“Oh, Taste and see the the Lord is good. Blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” Psalm 34:8

Cancer. Six letters. A myriad of emotions.

The unchangeable truth:

The Lord is good. He is. God is not defined by my circumstances. I must view my circumstances in light of God’s character.

I am blessed. Jesus Christ paid sin’s penalty on my behalf. I am an undeserved recipient of God’s mercy and grace.

God is my refuge, my chacah [khaw-saw’] — my place to flee for protection; the One I can confide in, put my complete trust and hope in. He is always there. He understands. He is big enough to handle my emotions and honest questions.

And, so, I truly can taste ta’am [taw-am’] perceive, “bite into” and see [experience] that God is good. And I have a true refuge where I can run with my questions, my fears, my uncertainties. I can walk in confidence that a Sovereign God loves my completely.

I am blessed.

Have you tasted God’s goodness? Is He your refuge?
