At times we all get mired down by events in our lives, or by the events in the lives of those we love. When we do, it impacts our judgement, our viewpoint, our perspective, and all of that makes it harder to remember who we are and whose we are.
A few years ago, I recognized this and sought a way to remind myself when I needed reminding. As for all of us, that’s pretty often. I spent a lot of time thinking about things, and then I started noting the important points to remember.
One thing that isn’t on the list but is etched in HUGE letters across my heart is to hit my knees first, not as a last resort. We’re conditioned to try to fix everything, but we don’t see the whole “big picture.” God has the view, not us. So hitting the knees first, relying on his view and perspective and judgment can spare us a lot of misery and help us better cope with whatever we must endure.
The rest of my notes, I put in a little business card, then printed it out and I’ve carried it in my wallet ever since. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled it out to remind myself of things when I needed to be reminded–and sometimes when I didn’t.
So I’m including a copy here so that, if you’re inclined, you can print it out and carry it with you.
I hope it helps you as much as it’s helped me.
When we forget who we are, do we remember whose we are?
That’s the question in Forget Me Not, and the one our characters answer in their search for truth and healing.
