God, I Want To Remember

Updated on May 31, 2013

Lord, I am weak.

I forget You are strong.

I try to make my life work using my own strength.

I want to remember I am not my own person

But I am blood bought for Your purposes.

God, I feel alone.

I forget Your Word tells me

You are with me always.

You will never leave me.

You will never forsake me.

Father, I make bad decisions trying to govern my own life.

I forget to focus on You as my

Counselor, the Great High Priest, Almighty Infinite God.

Abba, I struggle with feelings of being inept.

What good can I do?

I want to remember I can do no good on my own but

I can do all things through Christ that gives me strength.

Father God, I do not feel like I have every material thing I need or want.

I forget You shall supply all my need through Christ Jesus through His riches in glory.

I forget You ask me to lay my treasures in Heaven.

Lord Jesus, I am exhausted trying to make my mark in this temporary world.

I want to remember You call me and all the weary to come to You for rest.

Spirit God, I want acceptance from my peers.

I forget man looks on the outward appearance.

I want to remember that the first shall be last.

The last shall be first.

The least of these shall be greatest.

I want to remember You see my heart.

      identifiable poetry. Keeping in view moment by moment is quite the challenge sometimes in the face of the business of life and the circumstances that arise in it.

      Tamarajo, thank you so much for the insightful comment. God is all we need and during the business of life, it is easy to believe we are of ourselves and own strength. I need a lot of reminding that I am not in control but am His subject.
