This is the definition of goodness I found on dictionary.com. I love the last sentence:

the best part of anything; essence; strength. 

I love how God gives us the best parts of life. All the good things are from Him. They didn’t just happen by chance. God gave them to us because He is good. 

I heard a worship song the other day called The Goodness of God. I listened to it over and over and it reminded me to focus on the blessings He has given me. Life can be tough, He never said it would be easy, but He gives us good gifts. Gifts like health, shelter, food, bills paid, friendships, etc. I don’t want to forget His goodness, even if I’m having a hard day or facing a difficulty. His goodness doesn’t change. God is the best part of anything; the essence of goodness, our strength! Here are the lyrics to the Goodness of God:

I love You, Lord

For Your mercy never failed 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

And in 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, yeah!

And all my life You have been faithful, oh

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, yeah!

‘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, oh-oh

‘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 keeps 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

I’m gonna sing, I’m gonna sing

‘Cause 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

Oh, I’m gonna sing of the goodness of God

James 1:17

Every good gift and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 

Matthew 7:11

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?”
