Five Minute Friday: Remember
Today I am linking up with Lisa-Jo, the Gypsy Mama, as we write for just 5 minutes. Five minutes of words which flow unrestricted out of the deeper places of my heart. Today I write freely, without worrying if it’s just perfect. No obsessive editing. Not a care as to what anyone else might think. Just me and my words, flowing freely from my heart to yours.
Today’s prompt: Remember
In this season of Thanksgiving, I want to remember His goodness. I’ve been reflecting on His faithfulness. I’ve been pondering all that He has done, and is yet to do. I want to be purposeful to remember to give Him praise, for He is worthy. I don’t just want to praise Him during the good times, but during the hard times as well. For He has remembered me. When I was lost, stuck in my sin, and walking down the wrong path, He remembered then that I was His. He remembered then that He had called me by name. Today I remember that He thought of me, before the foundation of the World. And when I stumble, when I choose the wrong path, when I get down and feel as if I’ve lost my way, He still remembers me. Today I remember all that He has done for me. He is good. I want to always remember to give Him thanks and praise. He is so worthy. He is always good. He never ceases to give me good gifts.
Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.
(Psalm 103:2 NLT)
Father, today I remember all that You have done for me. I remember your deeds, and Your faithfulness towards me. I remember that you love me, and will never leave me nor forsake me. I remember that you are good, despite what my circumstances tell me. Today I remember to give you praise!
