Last week was one of those newsletter printing, envelope stuffing, stamp sticking kind of weeks. Praise the Lord for great help, though! We whipped through 1,100 newsletters in close to 3 hours flat, and the printer also performed marvelously — only 1 or 2 pages jammed that I recall.
On Friday, however, I came in to the office to find Internet on the blink, printer on the blink, and A/C on the blink. Most of the issues have now been resolved, but it reminds me of a lesson easy to forget — God is good no matter what our situation appears to be. If the printer is making beautiful copies and things are running smoothly, or if it seems unbearably hot and there are more bills than funds, even then — God is still good!
When you think of all that David endured, his life often hanging by a thread while Saul sought to kill him, you can’t help but be encouraged by his words–and also challenged to have the same kind of trust in the Lord: “I would have lost heart unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13
