"Stones" of Remembrance
When God's chosen people (the Jews) experienced God intervening on earth for them, God commanded that they set up a memorial to refer to when their memory got rusty and to use as a teaching tool with their children. I think we need to do the same. When God does something for us, we need to write it down or make some other memorial of the ways God acts on our behalf. Like Israel, we are forgetful. When times get tough, we need to have a way to remember what God has done for us in the past so we can believe Him to be good in our present challenges. I keep a little notebook for that purpose. The other benefit of keeping the notebook is that I actually LOOK for what God is doing in my life and for others. It's amazing what I find when I look with intent!
