I Forgot. Everyone Does At One Time Or Another

💫 ❤️ I FORGOT 💖

👼 I was relieved to find out that I’m not the only one who forgets things. Everyone does at one time or another, according to Karen Bolla, a Johns Hopkins researcher. These are the things people most often forget: Names 83%, Where something is 60%, Phone numbers 57%, Words 53%, What was said 49%, Faces 42% … and if you can’t remember whether you’ve just done something, you join 38 percent of the population.

🙇‍♀️ 🙇‍♀️ Followers of Jesus Christ also have a problem with forgetfulness. In high-pressure situations, or when we’re just going through a daily routine, we forget God. We seem to forget that we are His children. We fail to recall what He has promised to do for us. We don’t remember His awesome power and His love. So we try to overcome temptation in our own strength, or to solve a difficult problem by using the wisdom of the world.

🙇‍♂️ In Psalms 20:7 King David said it this way: “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses,” which is another way of saying that people rely on their own resources. But then David added, “We will remember the name of the Lord our God.” How’s your memory today ? — David C. Egner

Daily blessings are daily reminders of God.

🎊 Stay Blessed My Friend 😊 🌹

The Resolve To Remember – Liberating Passover

Deuteronomy 8:1-11 NIV

Do Not Forget the Lord

Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the Lord promised on oath to your ancestors. Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. 

He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. 

Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the Lord your God disciplines you.

Observe the commands of the Lord your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him. For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; 
a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills.

10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. 11 Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day.
