  • Sometimes, when we're so busy doing life, we have a
  • 00:03:22.325 --> 00:03:23.960
  • Doing life, we have a tendency to forget, and in
  • 00:03:24.027 --> 00:03:26.362
  • Tendency to forget, and in that busyness, and in those

  • Done. see, when we don't use the
  • 00:04:40.069 --> 00:04:41.671
  • See, when we don't use the power of remembrance for our
  • 00:04:41.738 --> 00:04:43.239
  • Power of remembrance for our favor, then it weakens our
  • 00:04:43.306 --> 00:04:45.742
  • Life.
