See His Goodness Operating

Recently I’ve enjoyed painting and creating ‘textured’ pictures. I thought I had a good idea of an ocean scene and tried to duplicate the waves in an interesting way. It didn’t work out, and I was ready to chuck the whole idea. Instead, I turned what ‘had been’ into something entirely different, and I was able to cover over what I originally painted on the canvas. Sometimes we can think and feel that the canvas of our life needs to be erased because it’s ugly and even ruined. No, it isn’t. God isn’t out to put you into fear or punishment to change you. He is a good God and wants to do you good. He wants to use His goodness in your life. And, it’s His goodness that will transform the canvas of your heart and life.

That happens when we change our mind about God’s goodness. Instead of thinking He’s out to get us or ready to punish us, we come to recognize that He loves us beyond ourselves and wants us to experience His abundant life, which is His goodness, love, grace, and blessings. That’s what Romans 2:4, NASB says as Paul reminds us that repentance comes through experiencing the goodness of God. So, get ready to change the canvas of your life and heart. Be ready for a transformation as you embrace His love, forgiveness, and goodness. You’ll absolutely LOVE the new picture that will emerge, and it just gets better and better.
