Today I Forgot


Today I forgot to remember the Presence of God in my life.

I was in a hurry.

The television was blaring out unimportant messages.

I had to think about what was expected of me.

Brightly lit stores filled with intriguing packages beckoned me.

The phone kept ringing with an Urgent voice.

The children needed me to be a referee.

At work the computer broke down

And I didn’t know how to fix it.

I was reminded that I had promised to attend an important meeting after dinner.

I just got tired. Too much going on in my mind.


How do I break the cycle, God?

Where do I draw the line?

What can I do the next time, when I realize

The impossible has happened?

I have put God at the end of the things to remember.

My mind is filled with everything BUT the

Acknowledgement of the Presence of God!


My Remedy.

Be still and remember that I am.

I am as God created me.

The most important thing in my life is the Presence of God.

Wherever I am, God is.

I remember to relax and turn back,

Because God has never left me!
