Ever struggle to remember stuff? All of us can likely recall something important we’ve forgotten: maybe you’ve forgotten to collect a kid from school or you missed an important appointment. One of the symptoms of having a concussion is some shortfalls with memory. This is a polite way to say that I keep forgetting stuff since getting a concussion recently from a snowboarding accident. Thankfully, people are generally understanding, but it’s definitely frustrating to me. But alas, there are also some advantages to being forgetful. Consider some of the things below:
- God helped Joseph forget the troubles from the past – Gen 41:51
- We have permission to forget the things behind us & press forward – Phil 3:13
- The Holy Spirit helps us to remember what Jesus says (John 14:26) & I’m praying that the Holy Spirit helps me remember lots more as well!
