There are so many things that cause us to forget that we are beloved children of God and make us think that God can’t possibly want us, or that God just is not with us. But God is the one who remembers.
Again and again God’s people forgot. They forgot how to live as God’s people, called to justice and mercy, blessed to be a blessing to all God’s world. They forgot God’s faithful love for them. But again and again, God sent the prophets to remind them of God’s call and God’s promises.
