The Lord Is Good

 

psalm_34_8_by_gyldenbend

O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! Psalm 34:8

“Taste and see that the Lord is good.” This is an invitation to us to take God at his word, to trust in the Lord and experience his goodness, to know God personally, realizing that he loves us more than we can ever imagine.

David is urging us to do just that. He is inviting us to experience what he has discovered: the goodness of God’s salvation. David is celebrating that God has rescued him from his fears and troubles.  We are promised great blessings from God to his people. He will deliver, guard, supply, listen, and redeem all who trust in his power to save. We seek to honor him in all things, speak truthfully, seek peace and justice, and humbly serve our God.

Help me, dear Father, to know you better. Open my heart, dear Lord, so that I will more fully entrust myself to your care. Open my eyes to see just how gracious you are to me. Thank you for your goodness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Psalms 119:103  “How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”

My name is Cheryl Cooper, I have been a survivor of childhood sexual and a victim of a stalker and sexual assault at 15. I endured a painful divorce in 2015. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting! God Bless! The Lord has also blessed me abundantly with 3 beautiful grown and married adult children.
