God Made You Good!

“This only have I found: God created mankind upright, but they have gone in search of many schemes.”  Written by Solomon in Ecclesiastes 7:29





Man holding arms up in praise against golden sunsetIf we do not begin at a place where, from the very start, all God saw in us was perfection we are doomed to always see ourselves as not good enough. Because “God created mankind upright,” He sees in us something that we rarely see in ourselves. That in our core we were made to be in perfect fellowship with Him.

Sadly, we go looking for ways to make life “better” for ourselves without realizing all our efforts are in vain.

Life is never better than when we see ourselves as God made us and take joy in being nothing more.

The many schemes we devise to become enough in the eyes of the world simply lead to our destruction. Its only when we surrender our search for more that we find the one truth Solomon was able realize –

God made you good.

I'm married to an incredible woman of God and have two daughters that love to laugh and delight in the Lord. My goal in life is to bring others into closer relationship with God by engaging them in His story as we journey together in a faith-filled community. The basis for every decision I make in life comes back to my calling to share the love of God with those around me. My hope is that at every opportunity I will encourage others into a greater lifelong journey of discipleship.
