Daily Readings — 9/11!

Day 2063: Continuing with just who our amazing God is using Psalm 103! Have my Mom over for a few days and have to treasure the remaining time we have!

Scripture:  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all of His benefits. Psalm 103:2

Thoughts/questions: Soon after the Jews left Egypt, they began to complain and that cycle never seemed to end. For us, blessings result in praise and then comes complacency as the blessing becomes common. The apathy might even set in, and possibly even negative feelings/thoughts toward God.

After the attack on the World Trade Center in the United States on 9/11, a recurring expression was ‘never forget’ and who would have thought that day would ever be diminished in the mind of those of us who live in the U.S. However, it has.

We are no different than the early Jews and those who no longer sense the intensity of 9/11. Therefore, the Psalmist David reminds us to always praise the Lord and to forget not all of His benefits.  Those benefits are many and varied. We know them when we initially receive them, yet we forget.

Today, let’s remember. Take the time to NOT FORGET! Go down memory lane and think long and hard regarding all that God has done for you! Mine start even before birth and have continued to this very evening that I’m writing this! His benefits are real; they were designed especially for you; and you must remember them! Stop and do just that!!!

Suggested prayer: Father God, You have given me soooooooo much. Help me to remember all of them, bless You for them, and never forget them . . .
