It is difficult sometimes to remember how we got to the point we are currently at in our life. Over time, it is difficult to remember the steps, the successes, the failures, the blessings and the struggles that brought us to the life we currently lead. As we go through life, we hopefully are learning from our mistakes and growing with more knowledge and wisdom. We don't need to remember the exact mistakes that were made as much as learn from them. By learning from our mistakes, the mistakes become a benefit and not an obstical in our growth and success.
Lord, thank you for having a short memory when it comes to my faults and allow me to also have a short memory by learning from my mistakes so that they will help me and not hinder me.
