THE POWER OF REMEMBRANCE

April 25, 2014

Go back to the place of remembrance
A place you can clearly see
The times that God has rescued you
The times He has set you free

Go back to the place of remembrance
A time when He had your back
The messes He has delivered you from
The times you have gotten of track

Go back to the place of remembrance
When you had felt all alone
Then as you were quiet before Him
You felt like you entered His throne

Go back to the place of remembrance
When things were out of control
Then you cried out and let out a shout
He steadied and strengthened your soul

Go back to the place of remembrance
When your heart was broken and torn
Gently He came with a kind, loving touch
And gave you the hope to go on

Go back to the place of remembrance
When you wondered if He would provide
Though the hour was late it did not negate
The answer came as a surprise

Go back to the place of remembrance
When you were intimate and close
Nothing could separate you
From your heart sweet praises arose

Go back to the place of remembrance
Stir up the faith in your soul
Yesterday, today, and forever
He’s the God that will make you whole

Let go of all the woundedness
For surely we live in a war
The battle between good and evil
Can damage us down to the core

Just as the days that have past us
Our God is still on our side
As we return to Him in remembrance
In His love again we can hide
