'Good God'

Our Lady of Lourdes

God saw how good it was.

- Genesis 1:10

We've all had that thought, even if it were only fleeting, that evil had won and good had lost. All that God created is good. Yet, we still have to deal with evil. God allows us to encounter obstacles. But even heart-wrenching difficulties can be good because, in overcoming our difficulties, we can grow stronger in our faith. Especially today, consider the tremendous, lifelong sufferings of St. Bernadette.

We all have times when we feel discouraged and deflated. Yes, we sin, but we can always turn to God, who delights when we seek him out as we cope with evil and adversity.

If we believe what we are told in Genesis--all that God created is good--then we must believe that we are good since God created us. God does, indeed, see how good we are. Our task is to look at ourselves, our neighbors, our perceived enemies and try to see what God sees.

My God, you are all good and deserving of all my love.

- Terence Hegarty

Thank your Terrence for your wonderful devotion.

I do believe in what Genesis has told us, that everything that God has created is good, and that since God created us we must and are good. We have good intentions but we still have to deal with evil and sometimes we fall.

God allows us to suffer and allows trials and tribulations so that our faith and belief can grow stronger. Although St. Bernadette suffered so very much throughout her life, she was persistent with her faith. Let's be like her and persevere with our faith.

God never promised us a smooth sailing life for being his follower, but the rewards are well worth it in the long run.

We will actually be a stronger individual by the experience.

Grab some time today with the Lord.

Bernadette’s life story tells us that the blessing of seeing the Blessed Virgin at Lourdes actually began more suffering of rejection in her life. Yet she clung to her faith through it all. St. Bernadette, pray for us that we may do the same in our times of trial.

Thank you, Terrance, for your reflection!
