Sometimes you enjoy sifting through old photographs. The images stir your memory of long-ago vacations, birthday parties, weddings, and school events. Reflect today on how God’s hands were clearly evident in your life throughout the years. Realizing God’s presence in the past will help you trust God in the future.
—Missy Buchanan, Spirit Boosters for the Journey of Aging: 366 Devotions (Upper Room Books, 2016)
Have you paused and taken time to look through old photos lately? Carve out some time to do that today, and give thanks that God was present through each up and down. Join the conversation.
I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord; I will remember your wonders of old.
—Psalm 77:11 (NRSV)
