Woe! It’s Wednesday: It’s All Good

I heard someone say that they hate that saying: It’s all good.

Because it’s not good. Life is hard. People will disappoint you. Nothing has been good since Eve ate the fruit and gave it to her husband. God said “It is good,” when He surveyed His creation work, but it’s been pretty much downhill ever since.


I get what my friend was saying. But I find myself saying “It’s all good” a few times a week.

“It’s all good,” is shorthand-speak for:

  • “I understand what you said and I get it.”
  • “I forgive you. We can move on.”
  • “Yes, that was bad, but it’s not the end of the world. God is sovereign and it will work out.”
  • “It may not be good now, but it will be, and I have faith.”

Am I wrong about this? What does “It’s all good,” mean to you?
