Do Not Forget

As we age forgetting becomes a dreaded experience. Does it mean the arrival of an intrusive and intractable enemy that will eventually wipe all memory and leave me a stranger to myself and others? We know there is pathology that will do just that. For this we rest in the grace of God, knowing He does not forget.

But for today, while we have the power to control our memory, let’s think about Deuteronomy 4:9. “Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.”

What have you seen of God at work in your life that you want to remember?

When has His Presence been so powerful that the story could be of encouragement to those just starting out on the journey of faith?

I welcome both your memories and what you are doing to keep them.

I will watch for your comments.

Thank you.
