FORGOTTEN MEMORIES

READ:
Psalm 103:1-8

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
-Psalm 103:2

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Esther 1-2
Acts 5:1-21

Recently, a friend from my youth emailed me a picture of our junior high track team. The grainy black-and-white snapshot showed a vaguely familiar group of teens with our two coaches. I was instantly swept back in time to happy memories of running the mile and the half-mile in track meets. Yet even as I enjoyed remembering those days, I found myself thinking about how easily I had forgotten them and moved on to other things.
As we make our way on the journey of life, it is easy to forget places, people, and events that have been important to us along the way. Time passes, yesterday fades, and we become obsessed with the concerns of the moment. When this happens, we can also forget just how good God has been to us. Perhaps that is why David remembered as he wrote, “Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits” (Psalm 103:1-2).
Never is this remembrance more needed than the heartaches of life crowd in on us. When we are feeling overwhelmed and forgotten, it’s important to recall all that He has done for us. In remembering, we find encouragement to trust Him in the present and for the future. – Bill Crowder
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. – Oatman


Remembering God’s faithfulness in the past strengthens us for the future.
