Memory is a powerful function in our lives. How we remember our past impacts who we are in the present, and where we are headed in the future. Unfortunately, we often put great energy into remembering that which keeps us in bondage, and forgetting that which has been a blessing. We remember what seems to have gone wrong, and take for granted so much that is, in truth, stunningly gracious.
Take a moment to remember… that we were born. There was no necessity to our existing other than the basic truth that God chose for us to be alive. God gave us life as a gift. It is a privilege to be alive. We are here not by chance; we were placed here by God for a purpose. How are we doing in finding that purpose?
