"Our faith would be stronger if we would remember
what God has done for us in the past.
For some reason, as humans, we seem to remember
all the hurts and tragedies of our past,
but forget the good that has happened.
“Some saints have very short memories.
It has been well said that we write our benefits in dust
and our injuries in marble,
and it is equally true that we generally inscribe
our afflictions upon brass,
while the records of the deliverances
of God are written in water."
C. H. Spurgeon (from "The Lion & the Bear")
