Encouraging a higher standard for Christian music

Engraved Blessings

Someone has said that memory is a sepulcher of broken bones. Someone else has said that memory is a nursery in which children who have grown old play with their broken toys. Memory is the library and the treasury of the mind. Psychiatrist Rollo Mays says, “Memory is not just the imprint of the past upon us; it is the keeper of what is meaningful for our deepest hopes and fears.”
Memory is selective. Often we forget what God has done for us. Charles Spurgeon said, “We write our blessings in the sand, and we engrave our complaints in the marble.” Memory becomes impressed with burdens. The word remember is used 14 times in Deuteronomy, and 9 of those warn of forgetting.
True praise ought to come from the heart, not the memory (Matt. 15:8). Worship is the believer’s adoring response to all that God says and does.
Engrave God’s blessings in your heart, and you’ll never grow weary of praising Him.

Never forget God’s blessings. Praise Him for all He has done.

Don’t load your mind with past burdens but enrich it with a memory of His blessings.

Remind Me, Dear Lord

Words and Music by Dottie Rambo
The things that I love, and hold dear to my heart
Are just borrowed, they’re not mine at all
Jesus only let me use them to brighten my life
So remind me, remind me dear Lord
 
Roll back the curtain of memories now and then
Show me where You brought me from
And where I could have been
Remember I’m human and humans forget
So remind me, remind me dear Lord
 
Nothing good have I done to deserve God’s own Son
I’m not worthy of the scars in His hands
Yet He chose the road to Calv’ry to die in my stead
Why He loves me, I just can’t understand
 
Roll back the curtain of memories now and then
Show me where You brought me from
And where I could have been
Remember I’m human and humans forget
So remind me, remind me dear Lord
 
So remind me, remind me dear Lord
