God’s Goodness

God’s Goodness
Do you have a go-to worship song?  A song that fills your heart with joy in the Lord every time you hear it.
Sometimes when I’m listening to songs that I love and am familiar they take on a whole new meaning and feeling when I hear them in the midst of a trial. The song that is currently running through my head each day has been  “The Goodness of God”.  I sang this song during the midst of one of the hardest breakups when my heart was in so much pain (I’m kinda still in this trial…heart trials take a long time to heal).  But this song has helped me to refocus my eyes on how good our God truly is. When I hear the words to this song I am reminded that God is good, and he has always been good to me, and will always continue to be good to me. That realization just fills my heart with gratitude and I just have to stop everything and worship.
Now, whenever I hear this song come on in my playlist while I’m driving I sing out with all my heart with the biggest grin on my face.  God is good to me! I can’t get over the lyrics that say God’s goodness is running after me.  When we go through struggles we can get so focused on the pain we feel in the moment.  But all we have to do is take a step back and look around to see that God’s goodness is still with us and has always been with us.
I’m going to copy the lyrics to this song below. I pray that the words to this song can encourage your heart as much as it does mine.  And once you get to the end, comment and let me know what your favorite worship songs are?  What are the songs that have gotten you through hard days and helped you refocus your eyes on the goodness of God?
I love You, Lord
For Your mercy never fails me
All my days, I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God
And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God
I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In the darkest night
You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a Father
I’ve known You as a Friend
And I have lived in the goodness of God
And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God
Cause Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
With my life laid down
I’m surrendered now
I give You everything
‘Cause Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I’m gonna sing of the goodness of God
