For Our Good Always

“And the Lord commanded us to observe all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy6:24

Doing things God’s way leads to life for the children of Israel. For us too.

Thank You, Lord, for doing all You do, for our good. And here’s a simple poem . . .

He Knows Why

As we are where we are
and begin to wonder why

help us remember, Lord
that it’s for us You died

not for Your own good
but for ours, you sacrificed

and laid down once and for all
so that we might have eternal life.


  1. Each feeling of death is full of promise of life. Only when we remember the Cross that we can cross to eternal life.

    Deb, please pray for me that I may not forget that, “It’s for our good always.” πŸ™‚

  2. Deb, Easter again! Woooohooooo! I love this poem. It’s perfect for this Holy Week. “That He might preserve us alive” – to eternal life is so wonderful. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Peace, Linda

  3. To think that everything He did and does is for our good. I pray that the Lord will help me to focus on that. I think if I did that more it would make my yoke and burden much easier, much lighter.

    Thank you for this great reminder.


  4. Thanks, Deb

    “Doing things God’s way leads to life for the children of Israel. For us too.”
    Praying the reality of this will sink into me so I don’t waste time in the wilderness.


  5. That can be a hard one to remember, sweet Rea, so we’ll pray for each other, okay? God bless you and do you good today!

  6. Three smiley faces! That put a big smile on me. Yes, that He might preserve us alive . . .what a God! God bless you and keep you, wonderful lady!

  7. I was thinking about you today, and praying. I know I don’t always see the good at the moment. But maybe if I keep thinking about this, it will help those tough times not knock me around so much. πŸ™‚ God bless you and remind you right now, how much He loves you. πŸ™‚

  8. I so want to do things His way. Just need help to do that!! So thankful that He will help us too. God bless you and all the ways He blesses through you!

  9. Thank you for linking here today. πŸ™‚ God bless you and your cool, with or without, sunglasses! πŸ™‚
