Every Good Thing

The Aftersby The Afters

There is something humbling about knowing that the good things in our life are a gift and not something that we deserve. Have you ever let that sink in? Have you reveled in God’s glory as you are enjoying a particularly good season in life? Have you felt the power of seeing God’s goodness in difficult times?

Family, friends, health, and even life itself is a gift from God. Our newest song “Every Good Thing” declares that truth. James 1:17 was a huge inspiration for this song as it says, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” How amazing is it that God is the giver of everything that is good? We can rest in the fact that He will remain good forever. He is unchanging and steady even when the world around us is shifting and unreliable. The next time you see a good thing in your life, know where it comes from, and give thanks to the God that gives it to you.

Life is BeautifulEvery Good Thing

I tend to be busier than I should be
I tend to think time is gonna wait for me
Sometimes I forget and take for granted
That it’s a beautiful life we live
I don’t wanna miss the moments like this
This is a beautiful life you give
You’re the reason for

Every good thing every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You’re the reason for
Anything that lasts every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You’re the reason for every good thing

There will be days that give me more than I can take
But I know that you always make
Beauty from my heartache
I don’t wanna forget or take for granted
That it’s a beautiful like we live
I’m not gonna miss the moments like this
This is a beautiful life you give

It’s our family, it’s our friends
It’s the feeling that I get when you see my children smile
This life, everything we love, it’s you alive in us
You’re alive in us, you’re the reason for
