God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.
This mantra has been repeated so often we know how to respond to it without even thinking. Without ever interrogating what God’s goodness means we know exactly how to respond.
I hope to begin a conversation exploring the goodness of God that we may not reduce His goodness to a cliche, but understand the depth, the breath, and the magnitude of it.
To start, God is good, period. Not God is good, if. Or God is good, when. Not even good is good because. He’s not good IF He heals you from cancer. He’s not good WHEN He provides you with the money you need to pay your bills. He’s not good BECAUSE He protected you from a car accident. God is just good. No qualifier necessary.
Let me preface this by saying I don't write this to claim I am an expert as to what singleness God's way looks like. While I have technically been single for about seven or eight years, I have only been saved and celibate for about four of those. And I ain't gon' lie, I have found over the years many conversations about singleness as redundant and sprinkled with marriage idolatry, so I have at times steered away from engaging in some of the conversations in this area. So no, this is not my expertise. Therefore, you can trust anything I write in this blog has been given to me by God and it is not my own. I actually would have preferred not to address the topic of singleness at all. But I love God too much to be disobedient. With that, my prayer is that Holy Spirit speaks to every reader of this blog individually. I pray that every woman (or man) that reads these words will receive a personal word and revelation from God. Fresh manna. Fresh rhema.
