Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Deleted

Today I did a scary thing.  I deleted thousands (literally) of messages from my “sent items” and then did the same with my “deleted items.”  Gone forever.  No retrieval!

As I saw those names and subjects fly past on my screen, so many memories passed through my mind:  “I should write again to so-and-so.”  “Oh, remember how God brought us through that crisis that we were asking everyone to pray for?”  

I may forget these things, but God doesn’t.  I’m glad He doesn’t delete from His memory all that’s happened—the prayers, the crises, my feeble attempts to serve Him….

Oh, I take that back.  There is one thing he deletes from His memory:  my sin.
