Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me. – Psalm 103:2 (NLT)
When hard times come, it’s sometimes really easy to want to give up. You might blame God or just give up. In the midst of hard times, it’s important that we remember what this verse says. It tells us to praise the Lord and to not forget the good things God does for us. It’s easy when things aren’t going the way you want to give up, blame God and start throwing ourselves a pity party. If we do this, however, we’re missing out on something really important. God tells us to not forget the good things He’s done. When we remember God, when we remember the things He has done for us in the past, we begin to realize that God will help us out this time too. So instead of getting discouraged when tough times come, choose to look to God and remember the times God has brought you out of bad situations. And realize, He will do that again for you!
