Forgetful · Grace · Remember

forget-full…

I wonder at how forget-full I am… especially when it comes to things I should remember…

Things about me… which keep me humble… filled with grace… void of judgment… arrogance…

How quickly I forget… what a wretch I am… saved only by His amazing grace…

And I know He says forget what lies behind… not allow shame and guilt to paralyze…

…forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13-14 ESV

I’m talking about remembering what I’m capable of… left to my own devices…

What He has done in me… by grace…

loved when I was unlovable…

forgave what to me seems… unforgivable…

found me… when I didn’t even know I was lost…

How forget-full I am of the amazing… lavish… abundant… grace He’s poured out on me…

Needing to be mind-full of who I am… and who He is…

… we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ — by grace you have been saved…

Ephesians 2:3-5 ESV
