Beth Moore — Don't Forget to Remember
Oh, I was going to tell you something. If you are just tuning in I was telling a story about how I love women of all shapes, sizes, and all these looks. But what I forgot to tell you, it's so funny because when I write down my makeup artist's name, her name is Faith. So sometimes it gets lost in my notes because I think it is reminding me to talk about Faith. Well, this is a Faith that is a person and not a thing, although she is a person who does the
thing. But she told me something and I just want somebody blessed and edified.
You know when I said, "I just love women." She said to me, she didn't even know I'd had that conversation in the car coming up. She said, "I love women's faces. I love women's faces!" Because that's what she does all the time. She said, "Beth," she said, "I just want to take them in my hands like this." She said, "I never see a woman that I do not think is beautiful." Mmhh! That's powerful: isn't it? She sees with the eyes of Jesus. And all of
you, my brothers, if you are in Christ, you radiate with him and you are a work of art.
Now I'm going to read to you all of Deuteronomy, chapter eight. It is 19 verses and I kept trying to think how I could cut it back and zero it in and I can't do it. Not for the theme that we have going today. So we're just going to have to let it be what it is and you're going to have to just hang with it. So whatever you may be doing, try to hang with the reading if you can.
Now my grandson Jackson who is six is an extremely active person. Now I don't know who he takes after but he is just very enthusiastic about a lot of things. It is hard for him to sit still. This has been his first year -- you know kindergarten back in my kids' day used to be a half day affair. Now it just goes on and on and on. These little bitty things are there all day long until 3:00 and it is just mind blowing to me.
But Amanda told me, we were walking out from our church service on Sunday and we were watching him walk because when he sat a long time, he has to do... he walks to the car. And the camera is going to need to get my legs on this because there's a lot of action that goes on with the legs. She said, "Mother." She walks to get him every single day, rain, sleet, snow, whatever it happens to be. She walks to get him with Anna Beth every single day to bring him home. And she says, "All the way home he jerks the limbs -- all the way home." She said she just has him in front of her so that she can just enjoy the ride.
So if at any point I'm reading you just kind of need to do it. You just go right ahead and we're going to get it done. Deuteronomy 8, verse one. The whole commandment that I command you today, you shall be careful to do that you may live and multiply and go in and possession the land that the Lord swore to give your fathers and you shall remember the whole way
And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these 40 years in the wilderness that he might humble you, testing you to know what is in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Your clothing did not wear out on you. That means that they came out of the wilderness in the same outfit they went in with.
