Lessons From the Edge

The goodness of God never gets 'old'.

We had Bible study at Edgewood on Tuesday this week. Looked at Mark 7 where Jesus healed the deaf and mute man. At the end we sang the chorus of He Touched Me. And then G started in on giving testimony to God's goodness.
She does this almost every time we have Bible study.
Though they don't always appear on her face, you can hear the tears in her voice as she talks about how good God has been to her. As she recounts her blessings, and - this week - the times Jesus has touched her.
And as I sat there Tuesday, listening once more to G tell about how God has been faithful to her and her family, as I once again beamed because of the faith and testimony of this dear woman, as I looked one more time at the room full of people who were smiling at hearing these stories again, I realized - the goodness of God never gets 'old'.
