Opening Prayer: As for man, his days are like the grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. (Psalm 103:15-16)
Scripture: Psalm 103:15-18
Journal: Where and how are you feeling forgotten these days? What is that doing in you? What do you think God is trying to do in you?
Reflection: “As for man, his days are like the grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.” (Psalm 103:15-16) There is great spiritual value in being forgotten, in having your place “remember you no more.” It creates some rich and fertile soil for the Spirit to move and work, some wonderful space for the life of the Spirit to grow and flourish within us. For God can accomplish something in us through our being forgotten that can be accomplished in no other way. If, that is, we are willing to embrace, rather than resist or deny it. For God has not forgotten us, and he never will. In fact, “from everlasting to everlasting (which is a really long time) the Lord’s great love is with those who fear him.” Thanks be to God!
Closing Prayer: But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s great love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children. (Psalm 103:17) Thanks be to God!
