Throwback Thursday

Psalm 78:7
The Voice

7Tell them to put their confidence and hope in God, and never forget the wondrous things He has done...

If you are at all aware of social media trends, the title of this post will sound familiar.  Throwback Thursday's, a way to basically reminisce about a time that you remember with nostalgia.  Plus, everyone else gets to see a photo of how you looked back in the day!

Well, as I contemplated this little trend, it made me think of another way to "throwback" and "share".  Life seems to be so full of trials and tribulations.  If it isn't me dealing with something, someone I know is dealing with something.  Regardless of the reasons and whys, we all deal with life.

It is so easy to get caught up in the daily struggle.  When you're in the middle of something, it is hard to see the end of it.  And depending on how long the struggle lasts, sometimes it's hard to remember life before that struggle.  But, what if we all did a Throwback Thursday about the things that God has done in our life?  This scripture in Psalms just says it how I feel today.  And to rearrange the wording just a little...if I can remember  the wonderful things He has done, that puts hope and confidence in my heart for my current situation or struggle.

And what would happen if we used social media to promote confidence and hope in God?  Maybe this particular trend won't ever catch on, but to those reading this post, maybe the next time you think of Thursday, you will at the very least think of something wonderful that God has done in your life...which will put hope and confidence back into your heart!
