We all need them. Reminders of God’s presence in our lives. In previous posts I have written about how the beauty of creation is often one of those reminders. God speaks to us through the beauty that surrounds us. We can also create reminders by surrounding ourselves with things that remind us of His goodness. Those things are different for everyone..but we all have them. Things that lift our spirits and bring up good memories..photos..art..special gifts or notes from a friend or loved one..cards….music..stuffed animals.. books etc.
It doesn’t matter where we live or how much we have..it is possible to create an environment that is full of reminders. Some people put scripture on the wall..some display their children’s art work. Some of us have green thumbs and surround ourselves with plants..some of us love animals. All of these things are created by our God..they tell us that He is actively involved with our lives. Some things remind us of seasons past..some things inspire us to continue when the present season is challenging.. everything can help us nurture grateful hearts that remember Him.
I am so comforted by the fact that God remembers us..no matter what we may think or feel. It makes me want to remember Him at all times in all circumstances. Fill your life with reminders of His amazing love for you..find ways to move toward Him and He will move toward you..giving you new reminders and creating new memories of His faithfulness.
