Do you forget things easily? I do. Minor stuff mainly. It’s quite annoying at times, isn’t it?
Maybe some of it is the curse of mid-life where muddle seems to be mandatory.
Now where did I leave my specs/book/papers? Excuse me while I search…
Maybe I’m just poor at remembering things because the past is getting ever farther away from the present as more years tuck themselves under my belt.
Although, thankfully, the most important people and events stick strongly in my mind.
And I try to always remember God’s goodness toward me because my life would be all the poorer without His loving care.Making a note of daily blessings helps stir gratitude and remembrance of God's goodness and grace. Click To Tweet
So as I pondered briefly on the word ‘forget’ for todays five-minute-friday offering, it seems my brain became a bit poetic (as it does when time-pressed), and I hadn’t forgotten how to write something after all – phew!
God always remembers…
Can the sun forget to rise?
Can the sea forget to swell its tides?
Can the wind forget to blow
or grass and flowers forget to grow?
Neither can God forget the love
he lavishly bestows on us
He cannot forget to offer grace
to every nation, tribe and race
We are the apple of his eye
We’re always on his mind
God’s continually watching over
offering safe place and cover
He never forgets to enrich and bless our days
offer mercy and forgiveness always
Like a watchful mother hen
he knows what we need and when
Included in so many things is
the way he forgets confessed sins
Because his primary motivation is
to remember his precious sons and daughters
Offering us opportunity to swim
a lifetime in Love’s soothing waters
