Remember This And Forget That In 2018

by Yvonne Chase on January 8, 2018

Powerful Message
While going through my old posts, I came across a post that’s relevant no matter the year. Back in 2014, I went to church on New Year’s Eve and heard a powerful message from my pastor titled 3 Things To Remember And 3 Things To Forget.

Still Relevant Today
As I read the post, I thought to myself, wow, this content is still relevant today as it was four years ago. Too often, we remember the wrong things and forget the right things. We focus on the bad instead of the good. Below are reminders of what to forget and what to remember in 2018:

3 Things God Wants You To Forget

Forget your sin. God wants you to forget what he forgets. He forgives our sins and remembers them no more. Romans 8:1 reminds us, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.”

Forget missed opportunities. You coulda, woulda, shoulda taken advantage of an opportunity but you didn’t for whatever reason. Forget about it. Don’t live with regrets and miss the opportunities that are right in your face. God has more for you in 2018.

Forget what people have done to you. This is a hard one depending on what was done and who did it. In Psalm 55:12-14, David says, “If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were rising against me, I could hide. But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship.” The depth of David’s hurt came from who hurt him. He could take the hurt if it came from an enemy but the hurt came from his closest friend. As we all know, it’s often those closest to us that hurt us the most. Sometimes, in order to forget, we have to remove ourselves entirely from the situation and the people involved. Do whatever you need to do to forget.

3 Things God Wants You To Remember

God is faithful. Yes, he is. I can tell you in no uncertain terms that God was faithful to the end in 2017 and I know he will outdo himself in 2018. He protects me, provides for me and he gives me a peace that passes all understanding and joy unspeakable joy. I can count on him to deliver on every promise in his word.

God loves you more than you could ever imagine. Always remember that God loves you no matter what you have done or what you will do. He is love and he loves you with an everlasting love.

The best is yet to come. God is a God of more. He’s got more in store for you in 2018 and beyond. Hold on to his unchanging hand.

Chose Wrong
Well there you have it; 3 things to forget and 3 things to remember in 2018. Before I go, a word to the single lady. Maybe 2017 was a terrible year of living single and bad dating choices for you. Perhaps you chose wrong out of loneliness and your overall tiredness with being single.

Remember The Lessons
Maybe you kissed a lot of unworthy frogs or maybe that relationship you thought for sure was it turned out not to be it. Guess what, it happens to the best of us. Forget about what didn’t work, remember the lessons and let those lessons guide you as you meet and greet potential mates in 2018. God has something much better coming.
remember
Something to think about…

What say you? What else can we forget and remember in 2018?
