How You Gonna Not Remember!

I’ve heard it said forgive and forget, but how you gonna forget? Now, let me explain. Forgiving is awesome. It helps you. Now, if you forget, then that’s another story. Yes, you can let that thing go and get over it.

If you forget about stuff, then how are you continually learning? How can you testify about where God has brought you from or how He has delivered you if you are forgetting stuff? How can children go from grade to grade if they are forgetting? How do you know how not to get back in some mess if you forgot about the mess you got into before?

Okay, let’s break it down a little bit more. The Bible includes many people. You see, they were not forgotten. In the Bible, the Israelites were to remember what God did for them. Joseph remembered what his brothers did, and yes he did forgive them. Even in the New Testament, we are reminded of people like Rahab and Abraham. God wants us to gain knowledge and wisdom. Now, we can’t do this if we forget stuff and never learn from mistakes. We got to learn. We just don’t know stuff. We are not all knowing. That’s God! We got to use stuff from yesterday and today in order to learn and grow and keep learning and growing.

You can’t grow if you don’t remember. You can’t testify if you don’t have a testimony. Somebody needs to hear how you made it through that. You might of been through some stuff, but if you got healed, delivered, made it through, and was set free, then I bet you learned something also. Not only that, but now you can turn that mess into a message. Now, how you not gonna remember?

The 7th Time

There is strength in the falling. Provebs 24:16, says that a righteous man falls seven times, but gets back up. This verse says that he didn’t stay down whenever he fell, he got back up and that he didn’t give up. Sometimes we go through stuff or makes some mistakes, but we must get back up.

Have you ever heard that an abused woman might attempt to leave seven times before she leaves for good? Yes, there could be danger staying at anytime, but there is strength in the trying. You see, it is like trying to get a car to crank. It might not crank at first, but when you keep on working on it, and then give it some gas, it just might go. Everytime the woman leaves, she gets a little more gas or hope, then she is gone. Of course, she most likely wanted it to work out, but for her to live and for the chains to be broken from the abuse and the addiction, she had to rise up or wise up and go. Everytime she went back she fell, and had to rise up. She kept going through until that 7th time when she said no more.

Now, I believe that there is something special about the 7th time. First of all, that’s a lot of times to keep falling, but in spite of the falling, you can get back up. In spite of the falling, you are getting wiser and stronger.

Don’t be discouraged if you have fallen over and over again. You shall get back up! Don’t lose hope! God has not forgotten about you!

The Traditional Thing

Okay, now should we follow the traditional things? Should we do what our parents, grandparents, or great grandparents did just because they are older and presumed to be wiser? Also, does age make you wise?

My answer to all three is not necessarily. You see, some of them might of made more progress if they had of done something different. Sometimes doing the same old thing time and time again is just not wise. What you are actually doing is stagnating yourself because you want to do what others did.

Some people are in relationships where there is awful abuse whether emotional or physical or both, but it is a tradition so this is one reason why they stay, plus the abuser is most likely the provider. Some stay and end up in the hospital or even having to get mental counseling and some end up dead. Now, that can be the devastating reality of tradition.

Well, in order to be better, you have to do better. You have to be willing to step outside the box. Yeah, some might have something to say, but you got to rise up. Sometimes growth comes just from watching and learning from what happened in the past. Do we follow the same footsteps of the ones who were in dead end jobs, abusive relationships, or had no hope? What if your parent or parents weren’t there for you, then should you do the same? Hopefully, you would want to do better.

We must keep hope alive and pray for the courage and wisdom to do something different. What we can do is make our grandparents and great parents proud of us if they are not to proud or just stuck in their own and old ways.

Now, look at this. Abraham had to separate from his family. It didn’t stop there. He and his wife assumed one thing, but God showed them that it wasn’t to late. It’s never too late to change some things up, and do the unexpected.

May God Bless You All!

Life Support

When everyone turn their backs toward you, and when you can’t trust anyone, call on God. He is for you. He is your support. He is not that person that is there physically, but He is so much more. He is your life support. He will lead and guide you, so whatever it is, give it to Him. God loves you!

That last one right there, staying focused on God will help you accomplish the rest. God knows what you are going through and He has not forgotten about you. God loves you and cares about you. Do what you can and God will do the rest.

The Race

Come on get in the race! You might say that you are not qualified to run the race, but the race is for anyone who wants to run. As long as you are determined to finish the race, join the race. Stop putting yourself down, and give it your best shot! The race is not to the swift, and the battle is not to the strong, and neither is bread to the wise nor is riches to the of intelligence and understanding nor favor to men of ability; but time and chance overtake them all (Ecclesiates 9:11).

Keep the Faith!

I Can’t Boast About Me

That thing that happened to me, I was just as surprised as you are. I know it wasn’t me, so I can’t say that I did this or that. All Glory Goes To God! I doubted myself, I am surprised at what happened, and I don’t even see how I did it. I don’t see how I did it, because it was all God. It was God doing what I couldn’t do. It was God shaking some things up, so I must give credit where credit is due. God, I thank you!
