Using My Own Experiences For Remembering and Encouragement

In summary of Deuteronomy 11:2 it says, “Remember today what you have learned about the Lord through your experiences with him.”

Bottom Line:
Remember what you have learned so far though your experiences with the Lord.

What this means to me:
I should remember often, what I have learned about the Lord from my experiences with him. What I do today and how I live my life will impact those around me and those who I may impact in the future. To do so, I must embrace the experiences of my life — the good ones, the bad ones, the shameful ones, the right ones, the wrong ones, the happy, and the sad ones.  God is going to use it for good in my life.  Galatians 3:4 says, “Were all your experiences wasted? I hope not” (NCV).  God can use every experience in my life for good. This verse reminds me that it’s important to remember the lessons I have been taught.  Every time I have an important lesson, I write it down so I’ll not  forget it. Journalizing these things will help me look back and remember what God taught me so I can be encouraged in the dark times of your life and know that God is still working for your good.  In summary, keeping journal will help me remember important lessons.  Part of my journal is what is recorded in this blog.  I can use it to search back key topics and remember what God has taught me.
