Goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

We are all born with the Goodness of God instilled within us. We must neither neglect it nor keep it hidden. God is the Goodness, within us. Our faith in God must shine through the goodness we manifest to others in our lives.

If we profess to be filled with the Spirit and yet we do not show goodness to others, we are living a lie. Nevertheless goodness is within you but at times it takes prayer and faith to share it with others.

Faith will assist us to see the goodness of God in others and to be aware and appreciate all the goodness that God has bestowed upon us. I can only speak for myself,

“How easily I forget the Goodness of God
and yet He has provided me with so many blessings,
I take it all for granted,
not realizing that without it,
I would not survive. I would soon exist as a dry twig.
When I felt unloved, He confirmed His love to me through His word and He held me in His arms and encircled me with His love.
When I was lonely and hopeless He reached out and comforted me.
When I was sad, He showered my life with joy.
When I had no strength to continue, He filled me with power and guided me with Goodness and Love.” Poem

Goodness is a fruit that is always in season. Winter spring, summer or fall Goodness brings heaven to earth. A fruit that if allowed to mature can without doubt enrich your life producing a multitude of other fruits, like understanding, happiness and love. Goodness makes a difference our world. Once seeds of Goodness are planted they will flourish transforming our world into a heavenly garden forever, never to wither.

Psalm 27: I am still confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

Do we see hear and touch His creation all given to us by His Goodness!
