It’s Easy To Forget

5 12 2009

I was reading something from Chip Ingram and he reminded me about being thankful.  One of the ways we can be thankful is to remember things God’s has done for us in the past.  Sounds simple, but what I find is that it is easy to forget what God has done for us, especially if our current circumstances are not the best.

Take a few moments and go through these steps that Ingram suggests for “Remembering”.

1. List 5 things you’re thankful happened in 2009.

2. List 4 people you’re glad that are in your life.

3. List 3 painful or difficult things that have caused you to draw closer to God in 2009.

4. List 2 things you tend to take for granted that were listed in Psalm 103:3-6

5. Memorize 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 this week and practice what it says . . .

16“Be joyful always; 17pray continually; 18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in ChristJesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Serving with you,
