For some time now it has become apparent to me that my memory is taking some hits. Short term memory, names, etc.
I’ve been obediently following my doctor’s advice – dark green leafy vegetables, vitamins, sleep, etc.
The enemy has been trying to upset me with possible unpleasant progressions, but without much luck. God has provided me with many examples in my life that He only allows apparently unpleasant events for some beautiful purpose (see chapter 15 ).
The correct action on my part is to try and see what that Purpose might be, and “entertaining” unpleasant scenarios doesn’t help provide the proper frame of mind.
My mind is a lot quieter. I don’t wish I could be out on a sailboat, I’m not wishing I could meet a woman near my age, I’m not looking for a book to read, a movie to go to, a trip to go on.
Although there are fewer things that I am interested in, I do not feel in the least bit bored.
Every day God becomes more alive and personal for me. I can tell beyond a doubt that I am being purified, taught and gently led in a direction that fills me with peace and trust.
I’ve accepted my memories’ limitations. I’m more interested in what the Holy Spirit has to say to me.
Although it’s not something I’m praying for, I’m quite convinced that my memory could be restored if I learned to limit my mind’s activities to those more in line with my Creator’s wishes.
There is no shortage of even more dramatic healings going on. God wouldn’t be in danger of revealing His hand too clearly.
Chapter 365 seems reasonably within reach.
