♪♫ Thanks for the Memories...♪♫

Bob Hope knew what he was talking about, (make that singing about...)

♪♫ Thanks for the memories...♪♫

Memories.

Oddly enough, it is these cherished recollections of moments in the past that keep us stepping out into the unknown moments of our future.

Especially when these memories remind us of the faithfulness of our God.


When the wind starts blowing,

and lightening starts flashing,

and thunder starts clapping,

we remember the ark, the God who protects, and the promise of the rainbow.


When the enemy is behind us,

and obstacles are beside us,

and roadblocks are in front of us

we remember the red sea, the God who makes a way, and the promise of deliverance



When sickness comes unexpectedly,

and bodies come full circle

and death comes uninvited (and unwelcome)

we remember the cross, the God who saves, and the promise of the resurrection.


We look back.....and remember.

We remember.....and believe.

We believe....and press on.

I am so thankful for the memories.  It is the memories, poured out in the pages of God's Word and spilled out across the pages of my life that keep me moving forward,

that keep me humming a tune,

that keep me singing right along with Bob....

  5. This is really fantastic Five Minute post! Each of those examples are amazing, and I love this ending: "We look back.....and remember.

    We remember.....and believe.

    We believe....and press on."

    God reminds us over and over again for good reason, doesn't He?
