Just Because He’s Good

February 8, 2012

Joel and Lauren decided to move from Washington State back home to Michigan. Wanting to make one last special memory, they bought coffee from their favorite cafe and then stopped at their favorite bookstore. There they picked up two bumper stickers with a favorite motto of the town they were saying goodbye to: “It’s an Edmonds kind of day.”

After 2 weeks and a 3,000-mile drive, they entered Michigan. Hungry and wanting to celebrate their arrival, they stopped and asked about where to find a restaurant. Although they had to backtrack a few miles, they found a quaint little cafe. Emma, their waitress, excited to learn they were from her home state of Washington, asked, “What city?” “Edmonds,” they replied. “That’s where I’m from!” she said. Wanting to share the joy, Joel got their extra bumper sticker from the car and handed it to her. Amazingly, the sticker was from her mother’s store! It had gone from her mom’s hands to theirs, across 3,000 miles, to her hands.

Mere coincidence? Or were these experiences good gifts orchestrated by a good God who loves to encourage His children? Proverbs tells us, “A man’s steps are directed by the Lord” (20:24 NIV). In response, let’s “bless His name. For the Lord is good” (Ps. 100:4-5).

Bestowed with benefits daily,
Sent from the Father above;
Mercies and blessings abounding,
Gifts of His marvelous love. —Anon.

Every good gift comes from the Father.

Read: Psalm 100

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! —Psalm 136:1
Bible in a year:
Numbers 11-14

You Are an Adventurer
You're happy to leave things to chance and hope that everything works out for the best.

You are an extremely motivated and driven person. The more you accomplish, the better you feel.

When you get tired, you slow down at first... but then you usually get a second wind!

You are happiest when you've reached an important goal or milestone. You like to feel like your life is progressing.

You Are an Adventurer

You travel lightly through this world. You only bring the things you’re absolutely sure you’ll need.

You are good at finding balance in your life. You rest when you need to, but you also know that too much rest is dangerous.

When you get tired, you slow down at first... but then you usually get a second wind!

You are happiest when you are able to let loose and celebrate a little. Your natural state is to be happy.

Post it now!
You are an intense person.

You carry a lot of baggage with you when you travel. Some of it turns out to be unnecessary.

You are an extremely motivated and driven person. The more you accomplish, the better you feel.

When you get tired, you slow down at first... but then you usually get a second wind!

You are happiest when you reflect on what you have to be thankful for in your life. Happiness is a choice.

Thank you Kathy for this eveings thread! *Hugs*

Last time I tried to climb Camelback mountain I was ill & didn't get too far!:)

You Are a Hard Worker
You travel lightly through this world. You only bring the things you're absolutely sure you'll need.

You are naturally low energy. You have to nurture yourself in order to cultivate endurance.

When you get tired, you feel calm. You need to wear yourself out in order to be able to relax.

You are happiest when you've reached an important goal or milestone. You like to feel like your life is progressing.

You Are a Hard Worker
You carry a lot of baggage with you when you travel. Some of it turns out to be unnecessary.

You tend to push yourself to the limit. You don't stop unless you absolutely have to.

When you get tired, you tend to feel scattered and a bit disoriented. It's hard for you to get your bearings.

You are happiest when you've reached an important goal or milestone. You like to feel like your life is progressing.

YOU ARE AN ADVENTURER
You carry with you The spirit of your ancient Celtic forebears. It is no burden to you - it is the source of great strength and resolve.

You find opportunity in adversity. You carry on without rest until the quest is accomplished.

You never tire in pursuit of a goal - the Spartan regime you maintain in all aspects of your life serves you well.

You are never satisfied with what you have finished - you always seek a new and greater quest. You will drink Life to the lees.
