The other night while on the phone with my mom, she said, “Remember, Brenda? Remember, when you were a little girl, how much you loved Disneyland?” I said, “Yes.” Then she said, “Remember, when you were about 5 years old, anyone who walked through the door, you would run up to them, grab their hand, lead them over to the couch, open your Disneyland scrapbook and show them all your pictures and memories of Disneyland?” Then my mom said something which struck my heart. She said, “Anyone who knew you, knew Disneyland.”
I thought wow! How poignant is that? What if our lives reflected this type of excitement and enthusiasm, so much so, anyone who knows you and me, would know Jesus Christ. I believe it’s how our faith should be. Filled with excitement. A book filled with memories of all the things God has done for us, which we constantly share with others.
In this New Year, 2017, let’s take time to remember what God has done for each of us. Write it down, put it in a memory book and share the goodness, love, excitement and miracles with others, so they will know our Father in heaven, just by knowing you!
