Statistics say that bad and hurtful memories are remembered easier and that happy ones are harder to remember. That means that it takes effort and intention to remember and count our blessings or else they soon become a distant memory or forgotten altogether. It pleases God when we remember His goodness to us over the past years of our lives and it is healing for us to go back and see how God was with us even in the painful memories. Let’s take the time to steward our memories well and also teach our children how to remember memories in a godly way. The ability to remember is a precious gift from God that should not be taken for granted. We never know when we may lose it or have it diminished with age or disease.
