Remind Me, Lord

Remind me, Lord, of how it is you came to love me so.
When heartaches come, remind me, Lord, that they will also go.
I need not fear when you are near; remind me, Lord, that I
Can do all things through your great strength -- your strength alone, not mine.
When things are hard, remind me, Lord, you never promised me
A life of ease. Instead Your Word says,in effect, "There will be days like these."
My joy seems often to take wing and fly to lands afar,
Then I'm reminded quietly that joy is where You are.
Remind me how I see myself is often different than
The way you see me, as Your child, through eyes of God, not man.
When I am prone to criticize myself for feeling blue
Please lift my chin and whisper that these lies are not from you.
Remind me, Lord, that there is so much more to life than me.
Help me to change my point of view 'til You are all I see.
Remind me of the blessings, Lord, that at my feet are laid --
Oh may I bring into Your courts my sacrifice of praise!
Remind me, Lord, of how it is you came to love me so.
Repair my broken places, Lord, and fill me with your joy!
