The dark and painful seasons we journey through in life 


can refine our faith and hold vital teachable moments for 


those directly involved. In many instances, experiencing 


and  persevering through extremely challenging 


seasons can stretch us, become valuable insights and  


develop godly character. Many storms of life can 


become the impetus for us to pour our hearts out to 


God, trust God more, and humbly recognize how


 much we truly need God



Jesus warned us in John 16:33, that 


"In this world we will have trouble". 


Trouble will find us. In life, pain and storms will come, 


they are inescapable. 



Nothiing can happen without God ordaining it. We 

cannot control the outcome of life's storms, but we 

can trust the One who controls our entire existence. 

God can use the storms in life as classrooms that can 

cultivate our spiritual advancement. 


God never promised us a storm-free existence. Some 


of our seasons in life, will be stormier than others, but


 God is greater than any storm we face, bigger than all 


our fears. If God brings us to the storm... God will 


bring us through the storm. God is able to keep us 


safely anchored through the storms. 



When our arms are weary and our soul is battered, 


when the flood waters are rising... God is near... always


 present with us. Even in the muck and mire, in the 


silence and in our tribulations, God is closer than our 


thoughts. When it comes across as God breaking us, 


God is always building us, working all things together 


for our good, doing many great things we cannot see. 



When life becomes stormy, let us be comforted in 


the truth that the storm will pass, and even in the midst 


of the storm... we can rest in God knowing that God 


comforts us in our troubles and God is able to bring good 


out of the storms. We are never alone.    



We know that being a believer in God does not make us 


immuned to life's trials and tribulations. We believe, 


God allows hardships in our lives to correct us and make 


us spiritually stronger and wiser. Scripture reminds us, 


that when our faith is tested, our endurance has a chance 


to grow. 



We believe, God allows trials and tribulations in our lives 


as part of the molding, shaping and working all things 


together for our ultimate good. 



We believe, God has a higher purpose and reward behind 


every problem, and God is masterful enough to divinely


 orchestrate all of our trials and tribulations so they


 ultimately draw us towards being the people God 


desires for us to be. 



Trials develop godly character, and that enables us to 


"rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering 


produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and 


character, hope."


Romans 5:3


 

We believe, as we bear our crosses in life and go through 


the stormy seasons... we are learning powerful and 


purposeful life lessons which will not only help us, but


can enter the hearts of others.



As we continue to navigate through our challenges and 


tragedies, we pray that we will not neglect or gloss over 


the greater gifts inherent in our wounds. We


wholeheartedly believe, God uses the most painful


 wounds and tumultuos storms for our good, and 


whatever brings us closer to God is our greatest 


blessing and inspiration. 



Throughout the years, the avenues of our interests have 


grown and changed. It's amazing what God can inspire us 


to do when we allow God to move in and through us. With 


God as our Guide, we are able to explore new territory 


and break new ground. We know that as long as God is 


in the forefront of all of our affairs and we are standing 


in the power of God... nothing will overcome us. 


Whatever it is, we can get through it.



We are dedicated and committed to sowing, on the soil 


of the heart, blessings and life lessons flowing from 


our understanding, observations and life experiences. 


We believe, we can help ourselves best by sowing what 


we need most. We pray these humble offerings will, in 


some way, positively impact, inspire, encourage and 


benefit us all. 

We are immensely delighted and honored that you have 

taken the time to visit

Positively Good Productions 
and
carolecgood.com

We esteem it a great privilege and blessing to have the liberty to reach across the globe to sow a potpourri of 

relevant and edifying messages we pray will appeal to the heart, add value to our society, serve as a fresh incentive, a spiritual breath of fresh air, and a storehouse of encouragement.

We pray these seed thoughts and illustrations will, in some way, reach out and speak comfort and strength to the criticized, persecuted and afflicted. May these seed thoughts light a fire of courage for the frightened. For those living under severe hardships and going through deep rivers of doubt and rejection... may those rivers lead us all to overflowing blessings. 

It is our prayer this website will serve as a vehicle to lift the spirit of the troubled and distressed, build up the worn, serve as words of healing for the battered and broken, inspire and encourage the minds and hearts of those who are often overlooked, marginalized and deprived. 

May we be blessed to learn, grow and be assertive in recognizing the opportunities from all of our experiences and not allow any of the challenges in life to rob us of our growth or development. May we seek God's presence, and trust God for greater stability, resilience, guidance, confidence, assurance, sttrength, and abundance.

We are not here to judge or condemn others. We believe we draw people to God by walking the talk... not by discrediting who people are, what others have done or what they believe. 

We believe others will desire to know the Source of our joy... as we let God's Light shine through us.

We sincerely believe blessings and life lessons learned should not be held captive to die with us or placed under a basket, but passed on... from one to the other. 

These commentaries are mainly drawn from our collective knowledge, observation and experiences garnered from personal struggles. Although the specific problems wrestled with are not necessarily revealed... the concepts learned in the struggles are. 

We can only hope these commentaries will help others to keep God first and keep a laser focus on God in the midst of life's struggles. This approach to life and keeping God first has been and continues to be very effective --- so, we must pass it on. 

We passionately believe in the power of walking with God and valuing God's love and glory over our short-term gratification. 

Our aim is to cultivate, embrace, and pass on God's Peace with care, love, and grace... to the best of our ability... no arm-twisting, and no statements of, "You just have to believe."
Our goal is to impart grace, encouragement and edification that will positively strengthen and uplift lives internally, externally and eternally.

We pray these humble offerings will be acceptable to God and never serve as a stumbling block in anyone's life.

We believe, well-timed, sincere and compassionate encouragement can have a powerfully positive impact in the lives of others. We believe, when the right thing is said at the right time... it could be much like vital life-giving and life-sustaining oxygen for the soul. 

We have come to realize, personally, just as we need physical food for physical strength, we need spiritual food for spiritual strength. This kind of "Soul food", the Word of God, awakens the soul and gives us the energy and grounding that we need to keep our lives on track.

God of all comfort comforts us in all our troubles so we may comfort others as God comforted us.

2 Corinthians 1:4

It is not our purpose to make you agree with us, but rather to point people to God as their real need and lift up a chorus of praise to honor God, our Creator, Who is awe-inspiring and is by nature... incomprehensible and knowable at the same time. 

We know that we are not perfect and do not have it all figured out. We know we cannot open someone's heart to God's Truth, but God can.

This website draws heavily upon God's Word. It is based on the idea of freely offering inspiration, motivation, and edification as a gift rather than trading or asking for monetary support. 

We ask that you will read the contents of this site with an open heart and great optimism and find these humble offerings to be encouraging, useful and substantial.

We are trusting God to carry these messages 
and well wishes out into the universe...
to their perfect destination.

If this website can better equip and point us all to God so that we may live a more awakened life by working and living in God's power and purposes... then, this website has achieved its goal.

So, whoever you are and wherever you are...
the following messages are dedicated especially to you.
 
To my son, John and my granddaughter, Jasmine Leilani, both of you have been a treasured gift from God... a precious part of my journey. May God grant you the discernment and conviction to make the right choices in life. I am claiming and declaring God's blessings of peace and strength over your lives, and I pray the words and values expressed throughout this website will encourage you to choose what brings life and reject anything that is unhealthy for your soul. May both of you enjoy the abundant peace and spiritual fulfillment of a godly life and have compassion for the generations that shall come after you. May you continue to be faithful and upright in heart, so that God will fulfill His promises of blessings to you and your children. May your lives bring glory to God.
 
To the warriors who have prayed for us, lived with a 
sense of purpose and commitment to Godpatiently
 endured numerous afflictions, shared testimonies 
of God's faithfulness, encourageand helped us 
through our storms, darkest times, barren deserts, 
and wilderness experiences... 
this website is dedicated. 

We have been bountifully blessed to benefit and glean wonderful pearls of wisdom, truth, beauty and pragmatic advice from many of your shared life experiences. We humbly thank you for inspiring and encouraging us to live, think, act and do rightly. Thank you for lighting lamps of truth and making those rich deposits of inspiration and ideals by which to live uprightly. Your sage advice, your shining examples of living with a sense of purpose and commitment and your endless kindness has stirred us to start where we are, use what we have and do what we can to add value to lives while faithfully marching onward... humbly forging ahead to our higher calling and into a magnitude of knowledge we have yet to absorb.
Thank you for covering us in prayer and sowing a treasure trove of rich, refreshing and invaluable deposits into our lives. 
We owe you a continuous debt of gratitude.

In His love,

 May the following virtual chapters be edifying and have immortal significance in the lives they touch.

One of the most 


important 


realities of life is 


knowing to Whom


we belong.

Our relationship 


with God is our 


greatest treasure.

To fall in love


 with God is the 


beginning of 


wisdom.

Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. 

Psalm 126:5
