Help Me To Remember
Forgive me when the flesh cries out in me.
Help me to remember: It is the death of the flesh which gives me life in You.
Help me to remember: I am BLESSED when people insult me or falsely say evil things about me because of You…I am BLESSED…because great is my reward in Heaven and great is the company I keep.
Help me to remember: To submit to Your hand in my life, whether it is discipline and correction; injustice or weakness; whether it seems fair or not; whether it feels good or bad.
Help me to remember: The people who have gone before me – whose faith may have faltered momentarily – becaue you worked their circumstances out for Your Glory and their good and the good of the people around them.
Help me to remember: When my faith is weak – at that very moment – your grace is sufficient because your power is made perfect in my weakness.
Help me to remember: The vows I take with people, are vows I’ve taken with You.
Help me to remember: In order for you to fight for me, I need to be still.
Forgive me when I have held injustices against the people around me.
Help me to remember: You forget mine.
Forgive me when I’ve found my ways as righteous.
Help me to remember: I am a sinner saved by grace.
Forgive me for the mean things I’ve said.
Help me to remember: I have the power to build up and the power to tear down.
Help me to remember: My battle is not with people but with rulers and authorities and principalities of this dark world.
Forgive me when the good I’ve done has been self-serving.
Help me to remember: In serving others, I am an ambassador for You and You alone.
Forgive me when I have felt sorry for myself.
Help me to remember: Your Son went through much more than I ever will.
Help me to stay the course.
To be still.
To be faithful.
To love because You first loved me.
