Remembrance - 2 Timothy 2:8-9
Our world is often so fast-paced that we are constantly thinking about what's next. What's going on this evening? This weekend? This summer? What next? We become so focused on what's ahead that we often lose sight of what we've been through. When we go through hard times, we often want to press on and never look back--thinking we can leave the pain behind us. On the other hand, when we go through good times, we can get so focused on the next big thing and fail to reflect and give thanks to God. Instead, we ought to be intentional with our margins to create a habit of remembrance--through good times and bad. Through remembrance and reflection, we can give God praise and find hope and purpose in seeing the ways He is working through our lives.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, we give you praise for the way you lead us, through good times and through trials. We rest in your promise that you are always with us, so help us to develop a rhythm of reflection that we can see the way you are always working in our lives. In Jesus' name, Amen.
