Remind Me

When I forget my way and wind up lost in time, please remind me of my home, and where I do belong;

and when my steps just wander away from what is right, tenderly guide me back to Your path, straight and narrow.

When I lose sight of You, my precious prize in heaven, please peel blindness away and tell me once again: life here is just the womb;

and when my heart forgets where my allegiance lies, never stop to remind me: I am yours, I am yours, none other can ever claim me.

When pride begins to rise, and thinks that it knows better, tell me again once more: You are the Master Potter;

and when I try to claim the riches of this world, tenderly speak Your truth to my heart, soul and mind.

Remind me who I am:

Beloved of the Savior.

Remind me whose I am:

Your daughter, bought with blood.

  1. “Life here is just the womb….” . Hadn’t thought of it that clearly. Neat expression and good illustration. [I just hope I become a nicer and nicer, healthier and healthier “unborn” baby.]

  2. After so much sadness, in the last couple of days, it’s a blessing to be here.

    May the families and friends of the shooting know continued strength and love. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

  4. OH, this is so lovely.

    Perhaps this is what we can do for one another — remind. Because there *are* dark times when we can’t see Him. And there *are* grey times where we feel lost.

    But to have a reminder, no matter how small, that HE WILL COME AGAIN. He is wanting to connect with me more than I want it, even. And often — so, so often — I need the reminders.

    thank you for this. it stirs me up today.

  6. Visiting from Unwrapping His Promises today. Blessed by the reminder as I am at a point in my life where I don’t feel I belong here. It’s ok, because the earth is not my home. Blessings!
