The Musings of a Stubborn Believer

Afraid of Nothing… But Forgetfulness

I truly am not.

Not when I trace the working of God in boyish cursive now 15 years old…
Not when I ask a question, hear in His gentle whisper a familiar strain, and then find the original answer… Written 7 years ago, to the week. 7 years before I asked.

Not when I can understand in retrospect (as if it were the simplest thing in the world) why there was always reason to praise through bleeding days. Always.

I promise you, if you can’t trust Him with your today, it’s because you’ve already forgotten yesterday.

Write. Read. Remember.

You can’t tell the future. That’s why God has given you your past.

Go get yourself a journal.


  1. Amen… Interesting that you posted this today. It is exactly what I was thinking about yesterday. This post is just what I needed to share with someone. Praise the Lord!

  2. I truly do agree I believe that their is something special about writing that God even makes it a point to emphasis with in Habakkuk 2:2 when he says to the prophet writ the vision and make it plain. Thanks Sean for this one

  3. Sean, when I read your post this morning, I was troubled by difficult choices I had to make. I didn't get much more than an "Oh, right, I haven't journaled about this [today's challenge] yet," from your post. But this evening, looking back on my day, I'm in awe. God came through even more than I was expecting (Oh me of little faith!). And then I remembered… This isn't the first time. I have absolutely no reason to complain about my circumstances. Thank you for letting God speak through you, Sean, your post was for me today.

  4. Sean, So True, and even the act of writing it out is a blessing. 😀

  5. I have a stack of Journals too…I haven't written for a while…and it IS time again! Thanks for the reminder… Blessings Sean..love Auntie Diane

  6. Amen, amen, amen… Journals and I are best of friends… 🙂

  7. "if you can't trust Him with your today, it's because you've already forgotten yesterday." Wow…. so true.

  8. Amen and amen… You have inspired me to begin a journal again.

  9. Very true. My memory is not the best it could be by any means, so if I don't write it down, and read it later, I most likely will forget it after awhile, or at least forget the details. I've been reading the journal I wrote when I was sixteen…I felt like that was the hardest year of my life. The beginning and the ending of the 2009 section were so different…and yet, as I was reading, there were times I had to laugh at myself, because that's still the way I am. The time I felt almost or maybe depressed because of stuff with friends, at the time that was the longest, hardest ordeal. When I read it the other night, I realized that the roughest time was only two weeks! But, all in all, I learned so much that year.
