The Scripture tells us that God is good, and His goodness is abundant and unwavering. But despite all the goodness our Lord has shown us, we sometimes still tend to doubt and have negative what-ifs in our lives.
I have a lot of what-ifs in my life. These past few months, I’ve been struggling with my emotions and with making the right decision. Because of this, there were a lot of what-ifs that popped up in my mind.
What if this is not meant for me? What if this is not His plan? What if it didn’t happen to me?
I started doubting and questioning God. If He really loves and cares for me, why did He let me experience those things? Does He really love me?
But despite my doubt, God proved just how much He loves me.
At the very lowest moment of my life, He gave me people I can rely on—true friends with whom I can express my disappointments and worries in life. It was then that I realized how God is so good to me every day.
Psalm 145:8–10 reminds me that despite my shortcomings and failures, God is gracious and compassionate. He sees my pain, struggles, and brokenness, and He cares deeply for me. In my daily life, I often fall short and make mistakes, but God's patience gives me the opportunity to repent, learn, and grow.
So, let’s turn our negative what ifs into thanksgiving. Let’s always remember God's goodness to us. He loves us and He wants what’s best for us. He gives us so much more than we deserve.
