 “If Your law had not been my delight, then I would have perished in my affliction. . . for by them You have revived me.” (Psalm 119:92-3)

Just found out a friend’s daughter now has breast cancer. She had throat cancer several years back. How does she (we) prepare? That’s what this week is about: setting up monuments to help remind us of God’s past deliverance in our lives.

 “When your children ask . . . ‘What are these stones?’ Answer . . . 'that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the Lord . . . is mighty.' ” (Joshua 4:21-24)

After my daughter died, we had such a reminder. Upstairs, between her brothers’ bedrooms, was a “landing.” We put her crib, and several other items of hers to remind us of all God had carried us through. Like the Israelites in Joshua, we had “crossed over” and needed reminding of God’s faithfulness.

There are many ways to remember God’s grace: journal writing, dating the promises in our Bible, pinning verses on the mirror, hanging plagues or pictures.  Whatever works best, start today. Because we don’t know what tomorrow brings, it’s important to keep our tanks full.

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart; . . .You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6: 6, 8 & 9)
