There are some things we’d rather not remember…cutting the cheese in a public place, being caught with a finger in our noses, or falling and crashing into some object and other embarrassing moments.
There are some things we wish we could rip the images from our minds — a particularly disgusting picture, watching a scary movie that made our hearts jump in our throat, or watching your parents kiss each other.
Then there are things we never want to forget — winning a contest, a happy memory like a proposal or graduation, or experiencing a moment where we exceed our expectations of ourselves. Those kind of memories live in us all the time.
In the well spring of memory, there are thousands of memories we have. Sometimes they peek at us like a kitten playing a game. Other times, they are like mirages in a desert, you can’t quite see the whole image. And still, some are like monsters that attack you and you’re not strong enough to shut the door on them.
Whatever your memories are, they are the threads that help to make up who you are and build relationships with the world around you. Shared experiences with friends, family, and enemies are ones you use to sew together your fabric of life.
The same memories that we have with each other also exist when we think of our Lord. We remember what He has done and we sew our fabric of faith on that as well.
But what happens when your loved ones forget you? What happens when we forget about God?
RJ Thesman is our guest for this episode of The Write Stuff. We’ll examine the impact of memory and how it affects us in life and faith.
