God Is Sovereign, and God Is Good

Heavenly Father, Holy God --

You are so good.
As my heart is heavy with sadness and disappointment,
You are good.

As I struggle with loss and unanswered questions,
You are good.

As I chart unknown territories in my life,
encountering those who would seek to harm, or at least, see me fail,
You are there, and You are good.

As, in sorrow, I retrace steps taken in happier days,
You are there, and You are good.

When darkness falls over the sunshine of my days,
You are good.

When light shines brightly in the depths of my soul,
and joy's smallest ember ignites a raging fire,
It is You, O God,
And You are good!
