He is Still Good

I was scouting Pinterest today ( as I often do). Sadly enough I have over 11,000 pins these days. Can you say someones got a problem? Yet what I love is that even in the midst of my materialistic little ventures, God manages to show me something profoundly simple. Sometimes I stumble across the occasional bible verse or quote about God that really inspires me. I'm not talking about the kitschy, footsteps in the sand kind of inspiration- lol.

I found this photograph of a phrase someone wrote. It said, "and if not, He is still good." It was taken as an indirect interpretation of Daniel 3:18, where Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego are about five minutes away from being toast. Basically they are saying to the King, God can save us from this furnace. But even if he doesn't, we would still never worship your false idols. So then look back at that phrase, "and if not, He is still good." It's almost like you can read it and take in a deep breath. It will be okay. You can really fill it in with anything. And still, no matter the trials, pains and hurts of this life, He is still good.

I know that was short today, but if that can be of any inspiration to you, I know it was worth sharing!

Happy Wednesday <3
