...And they forgot about the wonderful miracles God had done for them and for their fathers in Egypt. For he divided the sea before them and led them through! The water stood banked up along both sides of them! In the daytime he led them by a cloud, and at night by a pillar of fire. He split open the rocks in the wilderness to give them plenty of water, as though gushing from a spring. Streams poured from the rock, flowing like a river! Psalms 78:11-16 (The Living Bible)
One of us shared a story on her whatsapp status some weeks ago about two women in her life who have influenced her greatly, one is her biological mother.
In her words, “I picked a certain habit from them that has helped me alot in life which is keeping a gratitude journal.
For example my mum does not see writing some certain things in her journal as being weird no matter how small or insignificant it might be to people. ‘You’d see things like we had power supply today after 2 months, thank you God’
I made up my mind to try writing out the goodness of God to me no matter how little because truly I realized that it’s easy to forget the goodness of God and like the Israelites grumble in the wilderness or when life challenges us forgetting that God keeps giving manna, clothes and sandals are not wearing out, water comes out from the rock for us to drink, the Lord is present as a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
Friends it’s easy to forget!
When life feels overwhelming I pick up this journal and I’m more confident that God is good, it’s His nature. I say to myself, May I never forget that God is always good even on my worst days.
David the Psalmist writes in Psalms 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: He understands it is so human to forget and even though its so human we must never forget.
If there is a God who keeps doing, then there must be believers who never forget but lay it to heart to say thank you even on days or seasons they enter into difficult situation.
Friends it’s so easy to forget so write the goodness of God upon your heart, write it in a book too, sing the Goodness of the Lord back to Him.
Have a gratitude-filled week!
