Day 5 | 40 Days of Remembering

day 5“You have forgotten God your Savior; you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress.”

Isaiah 17:10

This post greets you on the day I was personally reminded once again to remember. As I read my Bible this morning, I heard these faint whisperings in my spirit.

“Remember.  Remember Who I am.  Remember what I told you.  Remember what I have done for you.”


Once again, I had forgotten.

Once again, I feared.

Once again I tried to make everything make sense.

Oh, surely, He did not mean it that way.

Surely, there is a way around that commandment; a way to make right- and righteous- that recent action.

But sitting in His presence remembering Who He is and what He has told me, I have no justifications to defend or make sense of questions that I have.

I only have Him.

And that it enough … for now … until I forget again …  And once again am called to remember.

But we must remember who He Is, what He has done, what He will do.

God told the Israelites to gather stones of remembrance.  That is what I am trying to do during this Lenten season.  I am gathering stones.

When was the last time you picked up a stone?

Why not today? Go outside and find one.

Or buy a bag of them at your local craft store.

Or just gather your own mental stones of remembrance and record them in a journal.

This is a season of remembering, and in the remaining days of Lent, I am going to remember

 Who He Is

What He Has Promised

What He Has Instructed

What He Has Done

Are you still with me?
