Proverbs 3:5-6


“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 – NIV)


pathWhat precious words from Scripture. Knowing that God has whatever we face today is pretty remarkable. Hold on to these words. Believe them. Trust Him. God has it.


Today I want to share a repeated blog post. It’s one of my favorite songs and I pray that you will be uplifted by the message.


“He’s so Good to Me” – Monday Musical Musings


Music has had such a huge impact on my life and I find myself wanting to write about a song, a composer or singing group more than a few times per year. So I’ve decided to create Monday Musical Musings. I will now dedicate Monday’s to share the ways I’ve been touched by music. I look forward to it!


There is a little piece of music that I’ve heard a couple of times in the past two weeks that is so enjoyable. The music is toe-tapping good. The lyrics are simple and yet hold great meaning.


I have found it quite difficult to find this song, the lyrics and even the person who wrote this wonderful piece. But after much searching, I’ve finally found the right lyrics, the right person who wrote it and a version you can listen to.


“He’s So Good to Me”


Oh sweet Jesus, my Lord and Savior.

He gives sight to eyes of blindness;

Caused me to see.

How I love Him.

I adore Him.

There’s no other Friend I’ve found;

Who gives grace where sin abounds

And I’m rejoicing;

He’s so good to me.


I am on my way to heaven;

For my sins have been forgiven.

And it’s all because my Jesus loves me;

And He’s so good to me.[i]


Now you’ll love this version of this song if you lived through the 1970’s. I knew several guys with suits just like this group! So now that I’ve built it up, you’ll not want to miss this one. However, if you’re like me, you’ll have this tune stuck in your head (and your heart) for a while. So click here if you want an uplifting experience.


As a side note, the Calvarymen Quartet was the group singing the version I heard on the radio. If you get a chance to hear their version, you’ll really be blessed.


There are a few reasons to rejoice as listed in this song. Let’s take a look at them.


Jesus – “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his king will never end.” (Luke 1:30-33 – NIV)


Lord and Savior – “Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:10-11 – NIV)


Restoration of sight – “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.” (Ephesians 5:8 – NIV)


Friendship – “You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made know to you.” (John 15:14-15 – NIV)


Grace – “But he gives us more grace.” (James 4:6a – NIV)


Heaven – “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:2-3 – NIV)


Forgiveness of sin – “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.” (Ephesians 1:7-8 – NIV)


Jesus loves me – “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 – NIV)


Goodness – “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23 – NIV)


If these were the only reasons we have to rejoice, we would have quite a list! However there are plenty more found in Scripture. But this is a great start. If you are searching for a reason to rejoice today, rejoice for these blessings we’ve received from God our Father, His sweet Son, and the Holy Spirit.


Because of the goodness we have received, we too can say, I love Jesus. I adore Jesus. He deserves nothing less. The Apostle John knew of Jesus’ goodness first hand. He mentions in 1 John 4:19 (NIV) that because He loved us, we love. “We love because he first loved us.” We are called to love others and are able to do so because of the love God gave us.


For sure, God has been so good to me. I pray that you know His goodness and that you can say the same. If not, maybe today is the day to accept His goodness and His gift of salvation. Then you can tell others of how good God has been to you.


I now have a brighter outlook on Monday’s. Sharing my love of music brings joy to my heart and a smile to my face. If you have a favorite song that you’d like me to share, please let me know. I’d be happy to do so.


Have a blessed Monday and let’s rejoice today for all the goodness we’ve received!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,



[i] “He’s So Good to Me,” Lari Goss, Goss brothers Music Company, 1974
