Sometimes God Says, “Hey, Remember Me?”

From the mouth of my babe…

Gotta Remember

I was chatting with one of my daughters yesterday, and we were commiserating on the break-neck speed at which our lives are changing. As we talked about all the “irons in the fire” of her life, mine, and a few other family members, she looked at me and said, “Sometimes I think life gets crazy because God is saying, ‘Hey, I’m up here. Remember Me?'”

After we shared a chuckle, we agreed to remember

Remembering God is not always my first response to a difficult situation. Oftentimes I worry, fuss, complain, wear myself out physically–and then I cry out to the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. Go figure. Why not remember FIRST?

To maintain a healthy habit of regular worship, I will: “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.”

Exodus 20:8

When I lie in bed at night, unable to sleep because of pressing demands or uncontrolled concerns: “On my bed I remember You; I think of You through the watches of the night.”

Psalm 63:6

When I must strengthen my faith for what lies ahead, I will remember God’s faithfulness in the past: “They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer.”

Psalm 78:35

And when I question my worth, when I see myself as anything less than God’s precious prize, I will remember the Sacrifice He made to pay my debt: “And [Jesus] took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.'”

Luke 22:19

A Daughter’s Prayer…

Precious Abba, thank You for the hard things in life that remind me of Your constant presence and sufficiency. I don’t ever want this earthly life to become more appealing than eternity with You. Keep my focus turned upward and my heart filled with eternal treasures.

Today’s Question:

  • In what life circumstance is the Lord calling to you, “Hey, Remember Me?”
