You alone are GOOD!

Yes, I know I've posted every day this weekend. . .but, sometimes I feel like I have to post to remember, ya know? Today during worship, something hit me. We were singing, "You alone are worthy, you alone are Good, you alone are Father, you alone are God." Here's what hit me. . .YOU ALONE ARE GOOD. This shouldn't hit me. . .it's one of my favorite things to remind people of. You know, when they say, "He's such a good person" my answer? "There is no that are good, no not one." (I'd quote the address, but can't remember right now!) I even taught the kids in Sunday School one year that "we deserve death". . .it got some comments from parents, I won't lie =). . .and yet, that age old truth hit me again today. REMEMBER, BRANDI, I ALONE AM GOOD. WHY DO YOU EXPECT THAT FROM OTHERS. THEY ARE NOT GOOD, JUST I AM! Oh yes, Lord. I so often place my expectations on others. Especially Christians, because they should know better! What a wonderful reminder. One of the things I am working on now, is to go to HIM for all that I need b/c others just won't cut it. Why? B/c only He is Good!

just thought I'd share. . .you know, to the three of you who read this! let's see. . .Jess, Rae, Jen B.????

What a good reminder! It is so true. It is so easy to forget and start putting people on a pedistal. I had to repent this weekend of doing that to Jeff. Sometimes I put his approval so much higher than I ought too so if he isn't happy with something it devestates me... and I have to remember to seek the approval of God first.

I read this every day, too, dearie! And this specific post really touched me and awakened something in my heart. I am so disappointed in people (in church, at home, etc.) and I tend to hold that against God. Your post was so eye-opening! He ALONE is good. Not Jimmy, not my Christian friends, no one else. That is why I always feel so let down. Because I am turning to the wrong people. So, anyway, thanks for the awesome reminder. I think I'll make a sticker to put on my computer to remind me! :-) Love, Christina

Alright, I'm a blogger now, so I can comment when I read your blogs. And, I am constantly reminded of this very thing. Man, the freedom we feel when we finally release others from our expectations!
