God is Good ALL the Time!
Psalms 136
1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. 2 Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever.3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever. 4 to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.
God is good. Sometimes we miss how truly good God is because we often times associate His goodness to His acts.  Sometimes we associate the things God does for us to Him being good. This is only a byproduct of His goodness. Because He loves you He bestows His grace (unmerited) favor upon us. 
A famous parable Jesus tells in the gospels is this…A bad tree cannot produce good fruit and like so a good tree cannot produce bad fruit. The reason is you produce what you are, no matter how badly you may want to produce differently.  In other words what’s in you will come out. So in explaining this, goodness flows from God because that’s a characteristic of His makeup. He can only give out what He is. So His goodness is part of His makeup. The love you experience from God is part of Who He is. God is good.
God is good all the time. This is not just a catch phrase we often quote but it’s true to the purest form because Goodness is a piece of God’s makeup all the time. So don’t associate God’s goodness to His acts. When not so favorable things happen to you, God is still good. He is God on the mountaintop and He is still God in the valley below. God is good all the time and wants to share that goodness with you. Blessings
