Deer season is wrapping up across most of the country, leaving behind another year of memories, and hopefully, a freezer full of meat. For many hunters, it's been the best deer season yet. However, for others, a pocket full of unpunched tags remain.
Which side were you on? Is there meat in the freezer or will you be buying beef over the off-season?
More importantly, have you learned to find the good in the midst of the lows of a long and seemingly unproductive hunting season?
Have you ever noticed how quick we are to say, God is Good, when we're posting a big buck photo? But what about when you come out of the woods empty-handed? What about when there's no buck in the back of the truck? Is God still good then?
Regardless of the number of bucks that walk past our stand, or the ducks that drop into our decoys, God is still good.
His goodness isn't dependent on the circumstances around us. Unpunched tags, struggles at home, loss of a job, or the man our country chooses to lead the nation - they make no difference in the goodness of God.
God's still good.
These are the words my friend, Kami McGann, has continued to say after each negative doctor's report she's received over the last year as she's battled cancer. She's heard everything from, "The cancer is spreading," to "We've run out of options." Her response - God's still good.
Do we have this same mindset? Regardless of the doctor's report, or a buck in the back of the truck - God's still good.
