Day 2 -  God’s Creation Is Good

“God saw all that he had made and it was very good” – Gen 1:31

God’s good world turned dark after the Fall – and we navigate in that darkness.  I am not so much afraid of the dark, but I do have fears.  It’s easy to get consumed by all the bad news – media seems to major on the malicious.  Our news channels don’t report on all the people who quietly make it home without incident, who live quiet peaceable lives.  Instead, it’s accidents and disasters and violence.  Every day. Day after day.  Shall we retreat into our shell?  Hide from the malice?  Or is there still good in our world because God is still active in bringing good?  My friend Vance penned the phrase, “life is brutalful,” recognizing that life is both beautiful and brutal.  And in the midst of this brutalful world, are we able to trust that God is at work, making all things work for good, making all things new?  Learning to trust God and thus have our fear replaced with courage is at the heart of our journey – a faith journey.  God is good and he longs to restore the goodness of this world and in us.  Take some time to write down all the ways God has been good to you.  You might want to make this a daily exercise.
