Remember God

"My mouth is filled with your praise,
declaring your splendor all day long."
Psalm 71:8 (NIV)

Faded blue ink stains the opening page of an old family Bible. This Bible, written in Norwegian, was given to my great-grandmother, Ingeborg, from her sister-in-law, Marit, in 1886.

I long to know the faith stories of these two immigrant women. How did the Lord work in their lives to bring them to their new homeland? What fears did they face? What victories did they experience? What were their favorite Bible passages?

Susan Livingston, founder of Release Ministries, encourages us to remember God and the great things He has done for us and to record our faith stories to share with others.

Let's also pray for one another that the Lord will provide opportunities for us to share our stories of  His unfailing love with our family, friends, and neighbors. No matter what season of  life you're in, please share something that God has done for you in our comments section. In other words, you don't have to be a grandmother to participate!

  1. I am thankful that the LORD hears and answers my prayers! I asked God to put a song in my oldest granddaughter's heart and that she would sing it throughout the day. Later, when I talked to her on the phone, she had been singing Bible songs. It was a sweet moment!
