Forgetful

Sometimes I forget to remember:

my King rules and reigns in the affairs of men.

Sometimes I forget to remember:

I am loved, no matter what.

Sometimes I forget to remember:

I don’t need to be perfect; I won’t ever be perfect while on earth; my best is good enough.

Sometimes I forget to remember:

My body needs rest; I am not a superhuman.

Sometimes, I forget to remember:

The sun will rise up tomorrow morning, declaring once again that God is God.

Sometimes, I forget to remember to be thankful.

Sometimes, I forget to remember to breathe.

This kind of forgetfulness is a dis-ease of my soul.

For my soul was carved out of God-dust that knows how to remember.  My soul has been taught to rehearse the blessings on my life.  My soul is fat with the testimony of His care.

And the Potter comes without any judgement and simply reminds me.

And the Potter reminds me that He heals the diseases of my soul.

  1. Wonderful post! When I’m forgetful I claim, “I DO have the mind of Christ.” It is only through Him that I’m able to forgive myself for missing the mark. (perfectionism) Thank you for sharing this at NOBH. It’s great to have these reminders.

  2. Rest… yes, that’s my top memory slip, too. It’s easy to neglect my own refills when I’m pouring so much into a family. Thank you for your thoughtful post! Visiting today from Faith Filled Fridays.
