Remind Me

Sitting in church today, Pastor Tom mentioned a song from youth group. I haven’t heard it in years, more than a decade.) Yet at the name of the title, a wealth of memories flooded my mind, including the entire song. I began pondering how or brains work and the word remind:

1. Cause (someone) to remember someone or something.
2. Cause someone to think of (something) because of a resemblance or likeness.

I file away memories in my Head and some of them lie dormant, waiting for something to remind me of them. To bring the memory back to the surface into active mind. There are a lot of things I need to be reminded of, I don’t want God’s love to ever be one of them. But, I’m just a human. I forget sometimes and need to be reminded. Here is my prayer:

Remind Me

I gave my life to You,
Many years ago
I fell in love with You
You called me Your own
Remind me, Lord
How it was back then

I grew and learned
I read your written word
I studied and prayed
I grew closer to You
Remind me, Lord
How sweet that was

Life got hard
There hurt beyond belief
I only survived by
Being carried in Your arms
Remind me, Lord
How I need You

Life got busy,
I put the bible down
It got dusty
I forgot to pray
Remind me, Lord
How miserable that was

Remind me, Lord
I’m a forgetful creature
Show me again,
Your loving, caring nature
Remind me again
I will always be Your daughter

I will forget things
I will fail again
Remind me, Lord
You forgave my sin
I remember now
Please keep reminding me
