Sometimes in life we need God to give us a few reminders as to how much He has blessed us, and where we would be had it not been for His love and grace.Growing up in the church as a kid, I remember a song that an elderly couple frequently sang that has always meant a great deal to me. It was embedded in my heart and mind from the very first time I heard it. The song was entitled ” Remind Me Dear Lord.” I would like to share with you some of the words. The song said:
The things that I love and hold dear to my heart, they’re just borrowed and not mine at all. Jesus only let me use them to brighten my life, so remind me, remind me dear Lord
Chorus: Roll back the curtain of memories now and then. Show me where you brought me from and where I could have been. Just remember I’m a human, and humans forget. So remind me, remind me dear Lord.
WOW! What a powerful message there was in that old song, and how true it is. It’s easy for us to forget the great things that God has done for us in our lives, and we often take his blessings so much for granted. And the truth is, everything we have we only have because God has, as the song says, allowed us to borrow in order to brighten our life. When we take a moment to reflect back on the things God has brought us through, and where we would be now had it not been for His grace and mercy, we realize that we are indeed blessed.
Everything that we have really belongs to God. Without Him we would have nothing. I just pray that each and every one of us will always remember that we are truly blessed. We must realize that there is nothing we have ever done ourselves that has made us deserve the blessings that God has given us. That’s why the Bible tells us we are saved by grace. Grace means unmerited favor. There is nothing we have done or could have done to earn God’s blessings. Never allow yourself to forget where God brought you from. Always take time to thank him for the blessings He allows you to enjoy. As the years continue to race by, let us never forget to take a moment now and then and say “Remind Me Dear Lord”
