I Look Into Your Eyes...

I look into your eyes and I see
The greatest miracle given to me.
You are the joy of everyday.
Your smile guides my way.

I'm blessed to be able to work in an environment where everyone is a Christian. And we really know we're all Christians because we talk about our faith, have times of prayer, and witness and show love to those clients who walk through our doors.

Obviously, that's not what makes us Christians. But that is some of the fruit that comes from being a Christian.

I say all this to point our that I truly am blessed to work with these people.

Just a couple weeks ago, one of my coworkers said something that really resonated with me. It was almost like a "duh" moment, and it was kinda weird that I had never heard it before or thought of it myself.

Recently, someone we had been praying for had a baby die shortly after birth. And it was hard. Very, very hard. But thankfully, this couple was saved. So, they had chosen to be grateful for the short time they had and remember instead of wallow in self pity.

And that's when Kathy said something about keeping a journal for all the times God has answered prayer or come through for you in any other way. She went on to explain why we should; because we're such forgetful beings, and when we're in the middle of a crisis, we only think of everything that is going wrong.

If someone were to ask you about all the good things God has done for you over the years, would you be able to remember all of them? Probably not, maybe because you didn't even see times where God protected you from something.

My coworkers point was this: when we're in the middle of a storm, it's hard to remember the days before when God came through. So why not write them down when they happen? Why not choose to record days that you saw God work in your life so that later down the road when you're going through a rough time you can look back and see that God really did come through then and He'll come through for you again.

So, I'm going to challenge you to start a Remembrance Journal. A journal where you can record the times where you've seen God work and then read those entries again when you have doubts. I'm going to start one.

Who's with me?
