"You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by." Job 11:16

Ask any mother with grown children to talk about when they were in labor giving birth to their children and they will remember all the funny unique things, including the joy of the baby's arrival, but not very many will remember the vivid pain of labor and delivery. The growing years of that child will produce many painful situations as they struggle toward independence.

I think of what Job went through in the bible and know that there was a time after it all happened, that he would remember it without hurt, pain and loss. The devil caused Job's issues, but Job did not know that and wondered why God was doing it all to him. Job's friends did not believe God would do these things either unless Job was a bad person. God is always fair. Elihu was Job's wisest friend. He knew it was not God and told everyone just that. God took to task reminding all of who He was, resulting in Job and his friends asking for forgiveness. God forgave them all. God even made Job successful again where he could move on in life despite the pain and loss brought on by the devil.

No matter what the journey may be, God is there with you. The memory of the happening may stay with you, but time will fade the pain as life fills back into you. Are there things that have happened in your life that you want to forget, or tried to forget? We all have something we cling to from a happening to cruel names or words. Often we carry dislike for someone due to something from the past, not realizing to forgive is to forget. It is time to forgive. It is time to forget.

Let it go today....and move on in your life to the positive side of living.

Grace and Abundance,

"My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart," Proverbs 3:1
