Here are a few words of 2010:
Health Care Reform
Personally, there are probably things you’d really like to remember from 2010. For me, it was summer vacation with my family and attending the ACFW conference in Indianapolis. I want to remember watching my graduate students get their diplomas, my oldest child starting middle school, and family hikes to the top of Roan Mountain. I want to keep the last conversation I had with my grandmother as clear in my memory as I can.
And though vampires seem to drink up all the good publicity at the movies, some of the top ranked films of 2010 don’t have one toothy undead among the lot. Toy Story 3 and Inception were at the top of many lists.
But there are things from this year that became annoying:
Teen mom fiasco
There are lots of things to remember, but what I really want to know is –
What will you choose to forget in 2010?
One of the greatest hindrances to truly living your life in 2011 is holding on to hurts and anger from 2010. God calls us to something MUCH bigger than that. Something that goes against the fibers of our selfish natures.
He calls us to forgive. To start with clean slates. To be the ones who do the unthinkable – FORGIVE!
Psalm 90 is a fabulous chapter to help us start off a new year with the PROPER perspective. Today and Wednesday, I want to talk a little about it, but here is something to remember.
This Psalm reminds us of who God is and what He’s done.
It reminds us of who WE are and what we’ve done.
Verse 12 says “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Becoming aware of the frailty of humanity , of the fleeting moments, of the wasted anger, self-pity, and worry and placing those things under the light of God’s eternity is a powerful thing.
They are so small – and we make them soooo big.
With God’s help, what will we choose to FORGIVE and FORGET from 2010? We have the choice and God gives the ability.
Any best and/or worst memories of 2010?
Any you need to forget?
