A Blast From The Past

So I am driving down the road, and the following song comes on the radio.  Always Something There To Remind Me by Naked Eyes.

Boom!  It's 1983, and I am working as a carhop at Sonic.  I can remember the old speaker on the wall that played the radio.  I can remember the annoying sound you would hear when someone would place an order.  I can remember making onion rings by the hundreds.  I remember cleaning the ice cream machine thinking I may have spared a few people a bad case of food poisoning.

It's it funny how a sound, a song or a smell can trigger a memory.

1 Cor 11:24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
Once a month we celebrate Communion or the Lord's Supper.  It is time we set aside to remember what Jesus did for us on the cross.

But I choose to remember a few other things also.  Specifically, what has happened to my life because of His sacrifice.

The time I was healed of a high fever.
The time I was called into the ministry.
The time I gave my heart and life to Him.
The time that He showed me, my wife.
The time He healed my daughter of brain tumors before she was born.

I remember what He did, and then I take the time to remember everything He has done to prove it to me again and again.  I rejoice and worship Him for His mercy, grace, and empowerment in my life.

What do you remember?  Take a few moments in your day and write them down.  Give thanks and be grateful for His love for You.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I will never forget what you have done for me.  AMEN

PS I have noticed that some of you are not getting the emails regularly.  As far as I can tell, Mailchimp did some upgrades, and my life has been one big headache ever since.  I am currently looking at new email providers that will deliver my content without harassing your email account.
