"Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth." ~Ecclesiastes 12:1a
We celebrate Memorial Day every year as a reminder to us of the soldiers who have fought for our freedoms.

It's funny, because you'd think that wouldn't be something that we would forget. But it is.

As humans, we have a tendency to forget. We only focus on what's happening here and now and we lose the beauty of remembering.

That's why God has so many reminders in the Bible. He says things several times so that we will remember it. That's why God got so upset with the nation of Israel, because they constantly forgot Him and all He had done for them.

It's easy to look back at the nation of Israel and think that we would never forget if we had all those miracles shown to us. But do we remember the things that God has done for us?

All the answered prayers? All the times He's given us peace?

When we remember what God has done for us in the past, it's easier to trust that He'll come through for us again.

So this Memorial Day let's remember those who have given their lives for our freedom, but let's also remember our Lord who gave himself for our sins and has done so much more for us.

  1. Lovely post, Ashley!! It's so sad how many people have no clue why we celebrate Memorial Day! :)
    This holiday is also a great reminder of what Jesus did for us when he laid down his life so that we could spend forever with Him! :D
