in life. Three times now I have broached the subject---danced around the concepts---tossed around the truths. Today is the final word on the subject which God tossed my way while listening to Sunday's sermon. The truths have now all been neatly packaged and the bow is tied--waiting for us to pick up the box, pull the string, and grasp as they spring forth. When you start digging--the hole can become bottomless---for the truths of God are as vast as the universe surrounding us---and none of us will ever reach anywhere close to the edge of all of them.
My final missive---I seem to have only short term memory when it comes to God. When my world was crashing around me---when there seemed to be no tomorrow---when the pain was intense---the loss devastating---and I questioned WHY?---I had forgotten to look into my memory beyond the fog of today--and remember the joy of yesterday.
My life is filled with blessings---and yet I got so mired down in the disappointments that I forgot to remember
Who showered me with a life filled with blessings? Who surrounded me with sweet family? Who provided all I need to sustain me? Who created this beautiful world? Who connected me to my community of believers? Who provided wisdom and teaching that I might grow? Who had been by my side every step of the way? Who had held my hand and led me? Who?
I lived in the cloud of short term memory---and looked down at my feet and not up to the heavens. I forget God's unchanging character and the truth
GOD IS GOOD
There is an explanation of the Why's---perhaps I will never see it--but the truth remains that God is good---God is love---God is faithful. I need to join the spiritual luminosity and practice retention of long term memory-during short term crisis. Even during the worst day--in the midst of the most terrible loss--when there seems to be no reason to go on--
HE IS GOOD
LIFE IS FILLED WITH BLESSINGS
ALL THOSE BLESSINGS CAME FROM HIM
GOD IS GOOD!
"I have set the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken."
