Several years ago I wrote a paper to God called “Put Me In Remembrance,” which was I was inspired to do at the bidding of Isaiah 43:26 where God said, “Put me in remembrance…..”
God keeps record of my acts for him, but I cannot find that He keeps any record of what he does for me. Am I going to allow his wonderful acts to me to be unrecorded? I wish I had kept record. But this will be my attempt to “put him in remembrance” and let him know how very, very much he means to me. The paper is addressed to God.
To God: One of the most amazing things you ever did to show that you do remember our past, was the chorus incident. When I lived in Claremore, there were many nights that I went to sleep by singing a love chorus to you. Then came the interruption of part time teaching in Wichita. I spent time on the road between Claremore, Wichita, and Oklahoma City (where Sammy was teaching). What a disruption of our time together! Then the move to Okla. City, to the apartment first, then to our house on 113th Street. When things settled down and I tried to re-establish our before-sleep routine, I could not remember the song. I shut the bathroom closet door and said, “Lord, I cannot remember that chorus but you do, don’t you?” As I turned to go out of the room, the words came.
I lift my hands, I raise my voice, I give my love to you, my Lord, and I rejoice.
There are many, many reasons why I love you like I do.
But most of all I love you, Jesus
Most of all I love you, Master
Most of all I love you because You’re You!
