Struggles on the Journey – Forgetfulness

To-do lists litter my desk as I struggle against forgetfulness. Remembering is always a challenge.  God has called me to a life of remembering Him and yet I can so easily forget. More than 200 times I am commanded in Scripture to remember God, His covenant and His Word.

Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.  (Isaiah 46:9 NIV)

…be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.  (Deuteronomy 6:12 NIV)

So much like the children of Israel, I am prone to forget the goodness and mercies of God.  I need to use all the helps I can find to remember!  Should I put “remember God’s faithfulness” on my to-do list?  It may not be an altar of stones but anything that helps me to remember is good.

Will you join me in including “remember God’s faithfulness” on our to-do lists today?
