And I too, will not forget you!

So many times the bible recounts God’s promise to remember us.  We read about times when he remembers people who were waiting on him like Hanna or the children of Israel when they were under heavy affliction in Egypt.

In my own life, I have countless stories of times God worked out situations on my behalf.  The stories are most moving to me when I find out the details it took for the blessing to come to pass without my knowledge or involvement.  So I’m sold –I know God will always remember me.

Today, however, I want to turn it around and promise never to forget God.  To remember what he has done for me during the times I find myself in seemingly impossible situations or when I’m faced with a conundrum

I will remember how he has proved himself to be the God which nothing is too hard for when he saved my daughter’s life during complications at the time of her birth.  I will remember that he is the God who hears when I asked from the depth of my soul for him to intervene in certain situations.

Of course, this doesn’t mean I think everything will always go my way, it does mean I will always pray and wait until his will is clear in the matter.  I think its the least he deserves from me for him past faithfulness.

Can a mother forget the infant at her breast, walk away from the baby she bore? But even if mothers forget, I’d never forget you—never.           Isaiah 49:15 MSG
