Simply Sunday ~ Remember

We are at a time in which it seems there has been a great falling away from God. Disbelief – many feeling there is no need for an Almighty God who created and is involved in every step of our lives.

Power and money pervade society. In many ways it is not longer “keep up with the Jones” but “I have more than you, you are insignificant”. This does not lessen the need for a deep relationship with God – it makes this relationship all the more important.

While there has been a falling away, I believe He will be found, though perhaps in ways often most different than historically taught. Many formal religions remain out of touch with who God is and have tried to hoard Him away for the few.

Our God is Almighty. Belonging to everyone and His/Her (because we do know God was neither male or female) love of all of creation. Knowing God, loving God and each other as God has intended from the very beginning of the bible. A book which too has often been used as a weapon instead of the love letter it was intended to be.

Remembering our loving Almighty God, Recognizing all of the Gifts God has rained upon us with abandon we are to go forward in life in celebration; of our selves as created by God, each other as He made us for each other – and in celebration of the greatest being who designed, created and loved us from the beginning of time.
Wandering away from a religion/church that is not honestly and truly bringing people closer to the way Jesus lived and taught is not a bad thing. Jesus himself walked away from such a religion – did He not? His lesson is slowly being seen by more and more who seek to find, share, teach and love Him in new ways – that are truly old, originally – the way. There are Christian spiritual groups and centers that are growing with knowledgeable advisers assisting.
In my last article I mentioned a talented musical artist Lauren Daigle. I wrote of how her *Christian music is hitting the main stream – which is such an important gift! Listening (in the background) to this past Thursdays episode of Grey’s Anatomy I heard a familiar voice. Another song from her newly released (record-breaking) album “Look Up” her song “Rescue” was played. Beautiful.

Playing through some of her other songs from this album “Remember” resonated with me, where I have felt in the past few months. Despite the darkness that can sometimes invade our space, looking for His light, warmth, tenderness and love is what can and does see us through. I hope and pray that my sharing this love of God with others will help others know with confidence that God will prevail over all and we are saved in His arms.

Remember

Lauren Daigle

In the darkest hour, when I cannot breathe
Fear is on my chest, the weight of the world on me
Everything is crashing down, everything I had known
When I wonder if I’m all alone
I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember, I remember
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there
I will lift my eyes even in the pain
Above all the lies, I know You can make a way
I have seen giants fall, I have seen mountains move
I have seen waters part because of You
I remember (I remember) I remember (I remember)
You have always been faithful to me
I remember (I remember) I remember (I remember)
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember (I remember) I remember (I remember)
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there, with me
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
I can’t stop thinking about
Your goodness, goodness
I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember (I remember) I remember (I remember)
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there, with me
