As I write this, we enter into Memorial Day. I am caught up in thoughts of loved ones past. I am trapped in memories of those gone before and the legacy of love and persistent prayer that many have left me. I am so thankful for the heroes in the faith that paved a way for my today. I remember my Grandmother who prayed daily for me. I remember the man I was and the tears of hopelessness I cried night after night.
Most of all I am caught up in the love of a God who I don’t deserve.
Today, I remember my Jesus who died for me.
I am then flooded with the realization that every day is a memorial day of sorts for the Lord. He is the great rememberer. Even though His word tells us that he FORGETS all of our sins because of our repentance and forgiveness received through Jesus.
However, in my time of trial…He remembers me.
In my moments of temptation…He remembers me.
When evil comes upon me…He remembers me.
When I reach the gate…He will remember and reward me.
Because of the costly sacrifice of Jesus the Christ, I am REMEMBERED
