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.
