God is good

This morning I did my normal routine. I get up at six and then I pray until it is time to take my daughter to work and my granddaughter to school. Then i go to the wellness center and walk on the treadmill. I love to read my kindle while I walk. The time goes so much faster that way. Today I am reading To Love Anew by Bonnie Leon.

The book is a historical novel and takes place in London. Her hero is thrown in prison for killing a man in self defense, the heroine is thrown out on the street. She gets a job as a scullery maid and is raped by her employer.
Knowing he will return she flees for her life. Starving with no hope for the future she steals a loaf of bread and is thrown in prison. That's where I left off today.

With my heart heavy with the depression and despair of the book, I walked out into the most glorious sunrise I have seen for quite awhile. My spirit soared to the heavens. I am sure the book will turn to the blessings of God but it really doesn't matter for God is good all the time and His mercy endures forever. What a sweet promise it was to me to think he had that sunset there just for me. I know you will probably say that it wasn't there just for me but God says He does it just for me everyday. He loves me and He is willing to show me that night and day. Praise God! Be blessed today for God is trully good all the time.
