God Is Good

"Thank You, Lord," I heard her say,
For giving me a brand new day.
You've given me breath to praise your name
I know I'll never be the same.

I cannot keep it to myself
Can't keep it hidden on a shelf;
This kindness you have shown to me
Is not a dream or mystery.

It didn't cost a single dime
It echoed from your heart to mine;
It's easy and it's plain to see-
Your grace has been applied to me.

It must be shared with all I meet
I want to take it to the streets;
Let it be known and understood-
Life is hard, but God is good.

(This is about my friend, Leigh, who survived
lung cancer. She had a lung removed in '99
but did not need chemo-therapy.)


Barbara Thompson-Young

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Yes, God is good. He called my first wife, Kathy, home via lung cancer. I praise Him that Leigh didnít have to undergo chemo treatments. All the time, God is good.

Barbara, Your poem is so beautiful and uplifting! I thought it was so inspiring when I read it, and then I came to your comments at the end. I re-read your poem with an even greater appreciation of each word! Praise God, indeed, for He is good - all the time! Love, Peggy
