Gratituesday - Remembering...

Remembering. We remember lots of things. Events in the past both good and bad. Highlights from our childhood. The birth of children. The death of loved ones. But as we get a little older, our memories tend to fade. And as we get busy with the duties and joys of our daily lives, we can tend to not remember those things we thought we'd never forget.

Remembering. It's a blessing our Heavenly Father has given us. But do we take the time to do it? To count our blessings? To think back on what's been done for us? From where He's brought us and to where He's brought us to?

Remembering. The Word of God constantly calls us to remember. I Chronicles 16:8 - 36  is a beautiful call to remember, to proclaim, to seek Him, to sing, to give thanks!

But why all this talk of remembering?
As we move out of this season of focused remembrance of the resurrection of Jesus, let us remember why we have this focus- that we would remember all year long. Resurrection is not something we will have done, but is the very air we breath. When we proclaim each day, “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” we are not merely speaking of His creational power. This is the day that the Lord, by walking out of that tomb, has remade. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. We live in the days of hope and promise. We live in the new creation.

And...
He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.”
~Luke 24: 6 - 7

And...
The Eternal Faithfulness of the LORD
Oh, give thanks to the LORD!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!
Seek the LORD and His strength;
Seek His face evermore!
Remember His marvelous works which He has done,
His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,
O seed of Abraham His servant,
You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!

~Psalm 105:1 - 6 

Amen! Remember to remember!

What are you thankful for today?
