Rembering

DSC_7375

I saw God today, in remembering.

Some days seeing does not come easy.  I strain to see God, and I come up empty.

When those days come, rather than straining to see, I can choose to remember.

Remember who God is.

Remember what He has done for me.

Remember the many gifts He has given.

Some of my One Thousand Gifts…

1 – the quiet of a rainy day

11- Spring

25- the beauty of a river passing slowly by

528- red cardinal resting in winter branches

…helping me to remember.

Remembering is finding beauty in barrenness.  It lifts me out of where I am to where I can see again.

“Lord, I will remember what you did.  Yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  I will spend time thinking about everything you have done…” Psalm 77:11,12

What are you remembering today?

  1. I agree remembering is very important. It renews our faith and hope and it is a faith builder for others when we share examples of God’s faithfulness in our life. Thanks for your encouraging words, Angie. I’m reminded of the words of an old hymn:

    “Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Morning by morning new mercies I see;
    All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
    Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!”

      • Such a good reminder! I did a thankfulness chat with God this morning and remembered all the good things He’s done in the last couple of days.
        ‘Great is Thy faithfulness’ is the hymn I walked down the aisle to at my wedding because this song is so meaningful to my husband and me. It was instrumental for my walk and one of the songs we sang in the service. God is soooo good!
        And WordPress gave me a purple – my favorite color – quilt square! Yea!
