In Remembrance

“Take the time to remember all that He’s done for you,” my pastor said today, before we took communion.

It’s so easy to let the words and the story just wash over me. And on the night that He was betrayed…He took the bread and broke it and handed it to his disciples and said, “Do this in remembrance of me.”

It’s so easy to speed through life, to forget to slow down and remember and quiet our souls.

But it is never to late to start, to set aside a few quiet moments for memory and gratitude.

Remember that night in the garden, certainly. Remember the cup of suffering that He drank for you, and all that He rescued you from, and the glory that He’s bringing you to.

But remember the other things he’s done for you.

The people He’s brought into your life.

The gift of being able to look back through a hard place and realize that He was there all along, and He got you through it.

The rainbow yesterday that had a special significance for you.

The blessings. “Every good and perfect thing” is from Him. Every smile, person, and circumstance is something He has given you, something He has done for you.

What will you remember today?
