“Dios es bueno, Siempre. Siempre, Dios es bueno!”
– Translation: “God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.”
No matter where we are in the world or what language we speak, God is good. I was privileged to witness this first hand last month as I traveled with the mission team to Ahuas, Honduras to work at the Clinica Evangelica Morava.
God was good in allowing safe travel from the moment we left our homes until we returned. God was good in the way our mission team bonded and worked side by side to do what was asked of us during our time there. God was good as the clinic helped bring at least four lives into the world during our time there. God was good in the way that though we spoke limited Spanish and basically no Miskitu, and they spoke little to no English, we were able to communicate with each other to continue the ministry and mission of the clinic. God was good as we showed them our love for them and they showed us their love for us. God was good, is good and will always be good.
God is good in that when we are faithful to go where we are called, he will bless us in ways beyond our expectations. I was very anxious, and to be honest, a bit scared to go on this trip. Seth continued to encourage me saying he knew it would be a good experience for me. He was absolutely right. I experienced God’s hand and love in a way I never had before. I was able to understand the need for this ministry in a way I wasn’t before. I was able to connect the stories I had heard with the place they occurred and was blessed by the experience.
God is good, all the time. I had a nurse ask me to pray with her as she is struggling to find the funds to send two of her children to university. She didn’t ask me for money, she asked me for prayer; and even though she had little she said to me, “God is good.” God is very good.
God is always with us, always upholding us, always struggling with us, always walking each step of our journey with us. All the time, God is good.
May we remember that in everything we have, in every experience we have, and in every day we have that Dios es bueno, siempre. Siempre, Dios es bueno.
In Christ’s service,
