Full of His Goodness

Hillside Glory

To God we give thanks for this year
Through which we have been brought,
For blessings which we asked of Him,
As well as those unsought.

From greatest joy on mountain peaks,
His streams of blessings flow,
Refreshing weary travelers
In the Valley of the Shadow.

May thankfulness within us spring
For trials that we face.
His goodness may seem absent,
But abounding is His grace.

He shows His love in many ways,
Our lives so frail sustains.
He proves to us that He is good.
How then can we complain?

Scriptural Basis:
"Men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts, And I will tell of Your greatness. They shall eagerly utter the memory of Your abundant goodness And will shout joyfully of Your righteousness." (Psa 145:6-7 NASB)

"From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another." (Jn 1:16, NIV)

Attribution notice: Scripture quotations taken from the NASB. Other Scripture verse taken from The Holy Bible, New International Version® NIV®, unless otherwise noted. Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

Len Lacroix is the founder of Doulos Missions International.  He was based in Eastern Europe for four years, making disciples, as well as helping leaders to be more effective at making disciples who multiply, developing leaders who multiply, with the ultimate goal of planting churches that multiply. His ministry is now based in the United States with the same goal of helping fulfill the Great Commission.
