Just more or less repeating a post from eighteen months ago.
When life trundles on unremarkably, then is the time to notice and appreciate the power and goodness of God and cultivate responses of thankfulness and trust. When things become suddenly difficult, that’s no time to start finding out about the divine goodness. It’s not as if God changes with the changing circumstances: so while there’s time and opportunity, that’s when to realise that he is working all things together for good to those that love him. ‘And in the day of trouble great, / see that thou call on me.’
