Benefiting From Past Experiences

中文: Chinese Version

Re-reading entries in my journal from some months earlier, I saw that I had often been feeling “down” during those earlier times. As I reviewed my journal, I felt better and wrote to thank God, “You have lifted my spirit “.

This reminded me of a poetry fragment from an old hymn:

“I thank Thee that the day can never break,
Savior, when thou wilt leave me or forsake.”

This moved me to write, “I am trusting You,” and worship my good God. Uplifted, I went about the duties of my day.

Coffee ThoughtCoffee/tea thought: Thank You, Lord, for bringing to mind earlier experiences that encourage us to trust You today.

John
