God is Life and Life Is Good

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you have tribulation: but be of good cheer;  I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33

If you have not bought a “Life is good” t-shirt, you’ve probably at least seen one on someone else. My wife loves them! They are made of very comfortable fabric, and she enjoys the one’s with flip-flops or flowers. My favorite “Life is good” t-shirts are the ones with a stick-man “man-ing” the grill, and stick-man playing golf. They are pretty cool shirts.

But think with me for a moment: “Life is good”? I’ve pondered that statement when I look at these shirts, and came up with my own million dollar clichés: “Life is tough, but God is good” – And this one, “God is life, and life is good”. God makes it clear in His word that in this world we will experience some tough times! He doesn’t say tribulation may come…it
might come…if it comes…He makes it clear that at some points on this journey called life that we will “have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the  world.”

All of the “Life is good” t-shirts have stick-man figures of a man, woman, child, or even pets grinning from ear to ear while engaged in an activity they are passionate about. Friends, whatever we are facing today (whether we’re on top of the mountain or deep in a valley) may our passion for God shine at Signature HealthCare. And may we be grinning from ear to ear knowing that whatever is hurled our way, WE WILL OVERCOME – HALLELUJAH!!
