The Goodness of God

 In Agua Panela, Rehabilitation Programs

If you haven’t heard it yet, I would encourage you to listen to the newest hit song- “Goodness of God” by the musical group, Bethel Music.

The words of the song simply and so eloquently highlight a simple Gospel truth that so often we forget or fail to really appreciate.  Some of the lyrics include:

I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
And in darkest night You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a Father
I’ve known You as a Friend
And I have lived in the goodness of God!

And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God!

‘Cause Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now
I give You everything
‘Cause Your goodness is running after, it’s runn
ing after me

-Goodness of God by Bethel Music


In so many ways, this song exemplifies the ministry of Ciudad Refugio. Time after time we have experienced how God truly redeems and restores the broken, the lost, the pain for His purpose and glory.  From the men and women in the restoration program, we have seen God repurpose the past to highlight God’s goodness and love, even when they were running away from Him.  Their lives shout the story of how God’s goodness was running after them; seeking them in their brokenness and bringing them back home to His loving arms.

Be encouraged no matter what circumstances you are facing today; God’s goodness is running after you.  No matter how dark the night is He is right there with you in the fire and the flood.  He longs to be your Father and Friend; would you trust Him with all you have?  May your life be a testimony of His faithfulness and goodness!
