There are events that are forever etched in our memories, and yet there are others that quickly vanish. Events that have occurred on the world stage are easily remembered because of historical records. Equally, if not more important than remembering national and world news, is remembering the events, people, places, etc. that touch our lives personally. They might never be recorded in print or on video, but they have greater impact on us and far more influence in directing our paths.
Why is Remembering Important?
Our minds are a precious gift from God and we are to use them to reason in God-honoring ways. Our ability to remember directs our lives, and by allowing our memories to reveal God’s presence and faithfulness we will remember rightly. Then, when we experience difficult times or times of feeling distant from God, we will remember that He is always there. He is faithful and true and is creating a beautiful mosaic of our lives—a mosaic designed according to His plan, and for His purposes.
Learn to rightly remember. It will establish your heart , anchor your soul , and transform your mind . It will change your life.
