How Easily We Forget

Current mood:confident

I wrote the following mid day sometime last week.  I was having a hard day and being discouraged for one reason or another.  Then I got to thinking, I have no reason to worry, to be discouraged about anything.  God has gotten me through so many situations.  He has taken care of me every step of the way, with boldly answered prayers, things that people do not believe when they hear it.  Then my mind went back to the Israelite people, how they were taken out of Egypt with all kinds of undeniable acts of God, the Red Sea was even parted for them, and they were lead by a pillar of fire by night, and a pillar of cloud by day.  God was with them, right there, but around every corner, they would start to grumble, forgetting that God has them all taken care of, every need will be granted.  So I did a quick brain dump, here it is:

I want to spend the rest of my life remembering you Lord.  It seems that over time all amazing things, all of the unforgettable things, all the things of greatest importance, they fade, they loose their value, their hold on our lives.  This world degrades things, though the breath of life continues to flow against the destruction of this world, life is resilient, sin, or the knowledge of good and evil has tainted us, so that it is only because of the strength and love of God that we are still able to exist.  I will put up pictures on the wall, write books or journals, read the bible, fill my life with all the things that show Your work in my life, so that I do not forget.  Please God, give me the strength to do this, it is your life, your love that flows through me, I call on that Love that lives inside me, I call to you God who loves us.  Let us never forget, not the walls of water, the water springing from the rock, the food from the sky, the miracles, the answers to prayer, the direction of our life, the direct speaking into my heart, the showing of unsearchable things.  Show us how.
