Don't forget

Struggle to remember. Why is it so hard to remember what the Lord tells us, what He does for us. If I abide in Him, trust in Him, follow His every direction, He is there for us. We see how things come together. Yet it is so hard. So much easier to forget. Forgetting is not good. Forgetting the past of your own life is one thing, but forgetting God - Jesus is not something we should do.

The Lord my God will not, does not forget the covenant forged with me on the day I accepted Jesus, the son of God, as my Savior.

Meditate, delight myself, immerse myself in the Lord's commands, instructions, guidelines. Be mindful of them always. Surround myself with God thoughts, His words to keep me mindful of Him always, at all times.

It is dwelling on the "what if's and whys and what nows" that stop us in our tracks, that hinder our growth, that stagnate us and move us backward. It is easy. Harder to remember God's truths, harder to be obedient to His ways, easier to do what we want, easier to forget who God is, what God is, who we are in relation to Him.

The way, God's way, was never intended to be easy. How can we learn, grow if all is easy. But too, having it all hard doesn't mean its God's way either. All in all, it still boils down to abiding with Him, your journey through life, good times, bad times, plentiful or lean, as in Ecclesiastes 3:1: "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose (every desire) under heaven."

"My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,
And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.
Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights."
(Proverbs 3: 1-12)
