God is Good
    Do you find yourself complaining or grumbling about what is going on in your life?  Do people tell you that you have a short fuse?  Do you find yourself be critical of others?  Do you find it difficult to enter into worshipping God?

    Maybe it is because of the way that you see God.  If you see God as being cold, indifferent, and uncaring about your circumstances, then you may well be discouraged, critical and cold toward other and God.

    I used to sang a song called, "I Will Enter His Gates".  It goes, "I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart, I will enter His courts with praise ...."  This song is taken from Psalm 100:4.  It reads, "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name."   BUT why be thankful and why praise Him?  The next verse tells us why!

    "For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."  Did you catch it?  God is GOOD!  He is a warm, compassionate, caring God who desires to work everything together in your life for your good.  He desires to shower you with good gifts as would a loving father.  He is waiting for you to become thankful and to praise Him.
