Throughout the past 50 years, many athletes have pounded the floors of the gyms where my husband has been coaching. A player’s high school basketball experience comes to an end, but they are never forgotten. Coach can easily offer a play by play description of each season’s highlights and the players involved. These are rich memories that cause him to remember them in prayer often.
“NO ONE IS POORER THAN THE ONE FOR WHOM NO ONE PRAYS!” (unknown)
The richness of these prayers pale in comparison to the care and concern of our loving Creator. He does not forget us even though at times we may feel forgotten. When we find ourselves in this frame of mind, we are in good company. Even the Psalmist David wondered if he had been forgotten when he penned these thoughts:
How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me? But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me. Psalm 13 NIV (portions)
"The psalmist had a remedy for feeling forgotten. He focused on all that he knew of God’s love, reminding himself of past blessings and deliberately praising God, who would not forget him. So can we." Marilyn Stroud
In our times of anxious loneliness or fears of being forgotten, may we boldly proclaim…
“I know that the Lord FORGETS-ME-NOT. My heart is sure in His rescue and rich in His saving grace. I will ever sing praise to Him for who He is and for all the goodness He has brought to me!”
BASK IN GOD’S UNFORGETFUL LOVE AND CARE!
