I Remember

Sitting here looking at the meadow you painted many flowers for my pleasure. As I look to the river filled with awesome creatures that live there, the peace that surrounds me I wonder about the future. Deep inside a stirring, fear, hesitations, then I start to remember things you have whispered:

I remember the day you called my name and touched my heart. Lifted my head and took away the pain.

You loved me then and you love me now.

I remember when your Word first came alive in my heart and lit up the eyes of my understanding.

You loved me then and you love me now.

I remember when life was unfair and I cried out to you in rage, pain and suffering and you held me close and gave me comfort and peace.

You loved me then and you love me now.

I remember when I was betrayed by those that I trusted I thought I would never recover yet one touch of your love, one word of knowledge, and just one healing vision set me free.

You loved me then and you love me now.

I remember when the enemy of my soul stood before me and I stood firm and repeated your Word that I had in my heart for my victory. I knew then that I was becoming more like you just as you promised.

You loved me then and you love me now.

I remember when I felt the overflowing water of your love saturating me and I knew then that I would be made whole.

You loved me then and you love me now.

I remember when I thought I was a failure and missed my calling. Yet I felt your mighty hand take mine and pick me up and set me upon the rock.

You loved me then and your love me for me is steadfast.

I remember my love for you and that you loved me first. I remember your thoughts of me outnumber the grains of sand.

You loved me then and you love me still and call me beloved.

Help me remember our history together and to be always aware that your love for me is everlasting.
