Do You Remember Me?
Have you ever ran into someone out in public and couldn't remember their name? Or, they know exactly who you are and you think to yourself, "who is this person talking to me, and how do they know me?" I have this "brain lapse" every so often, especially since I'm 37 out of high school now...it's crazy!
 
Kathryn has started her new job at Brethren Care in Ashland. She sometimes works with the patients who are struggling with their memory and they don't remember her being in their room just 15 minutes ago. She says it's disheartening, but she is there to help them with whatever they may need! This got me to thinking about how God never forgets my name! He never forgets your name either! Isn't that a really cool and comforting thing to know? We are His and never forgets us!
 
Have you ever felt yourself fall victim to the taunts of the world instead of the Word of Truth? Have you gotten to the point where you forget that God is so much bigger than anything we may be going through? I just read this morning that "greater is He who is in me, than he that is in the world!" Such a great reminder! When you have these times in your life that rob you of who you are, work at getting into God's Word to remind you that He's got you!
 
Some guidelines that I have come across from the book of Ephesians: First, He draws us near. “But now, because of Jesus the Anointed and His sacrifice, all of that has changed. God gathered you who were so far away and brought you near to Him by the royal blood of the Anointed, our Liberating King” (Ephesians 2:13).
 
Then, We are God’s family. “We are no longer called outcasts and wanderers but citizens with God’s people, members of God’s holy family, and residents of His household” (Ephesians 2:19).
 
And, finally, We are to live in the light. “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light” (Ephesians 5:8).
 
So, when you are dealing with struggling to remember who you are, open your Bible and dig in to find out...you're God's child, and He's got you! And then I don't think it's wrong to pray this: Dear Jesus, I know You already told me, but remind me once more who I am. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
