Do you forget things easily? I do. Minor stuff mainly. It’s quite annoying at times, isn’t it?

Maybe some of it is the curse of mid-life where muddle seems to be mandatory.

Now where did I leave my specs/book/papers? Excuse me while I search…

Maybe I’m just poor at remembering things because the past is getting ever farther away from the present as more years tuck themselves under my belt.

Although, thankfully, the most important people and events stick strongly in my mind.

And I try to always remember God’s goodness toward me because my life would be all the poorer without His loving care.

So as I pondered briefly on the word ‘forget’ for todays five-minute-friday offering, it seems my brain became a bit poetic (as it does when time-pressed), and I hadn’t forgotten how to write something after all – phew!

God always remembers…

God remembers us poem image

Can the sun forget to rise?

Can the sea forget to swell its tides?

Can the wind forget to blow

or grass and flowers forget to grow?

Neither can God forget the love

he lavishly bestows on us


He cannot forget to offer grace

to every nation, tribe and race

We are the apple of his eye

We’re always on his mind

God’s continually watching over

offering safe place and cover


He never forgets to enrich and bless our days

offer mercy and forgiveness always

Like a watchful mother hen

he knows what we need and when

Included in so many things is

the way he forgets confessed sins


Because his primary motivation is

to remember his precious sons and daughters

Offering us opportunity to swim

a lifetime in Love’s soothing waters


I’m grateful for the gift of words flowing freely today and to be able to share them in the wonderful #FMF community meeting together here at our gracious host, Kate Motaung’s place.

Also joining fellow listeners to the whispers God strews along our daily pathway as I link with Barbie for #WeekendWhispers.

You are warmly invited to hop over to those sites to read the words being shared and see how we are all inspired uniquely by God.
