Remembering

As a global community we are experiencing a mix of fear, trepidation, uncertainty and anxiety around the novel Coronavirus and the disease that results: COVID-19.

Stark reports are intermingled with new restrictions and recommendations, and it can be difficult for the strongest among us to stay positive.

I was listening to Michael Gott’s song, “When I Forget” on the way into work this morning (I work at a major medical center, so no home quarantine for me at least for now), and it reminded me of something that I wanted to share.

26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Matthew 6

This verse from the Christian canon reminds us that we are precious, valued and cherished. It is sometimes challenging to remember that we hold this honored status when we are facing scary times. The best way to strengthen our faith in the face of a great storm is to take inventory of all the many times that we have been provided, cared for and blessed in our lives.

We can use a journal, or make a “Vision Board” to review the blessings, answered prayers, miracles and manifestations that we have experienced over the years.

It is easier to battle larger giants when we remember that the Infinite Spirit had our back on many small and medium things. Making a list of all the times Spirit showed up to cover our expenses, provided something we needed (or wanted), and brought healing to us or someone we love helps to calm our fears, and return to a knowing that we are not alone.

To put it in terms as they are presented in the biblical story excerpted above:

Remember all the times God showed up in your life as money, food, healing and answers in things large and small? Be strong, and have faith! You weren’t alone then, and you’re not alone now!

The lyrics in Michael Gott’s song include the following line:

  • When I forget, will you remember for me?

We can work together to remember – for ourselves, and for each other. There is a Power for Good in the Universe – greater than we are – and we can use it! We’ve used It throughout our lives.

And we can use it now – no matter what we are facing.

When you forget, I am remembering: for you, for me, for us all.

And so it is.

Prayer for Times of Turmoil

The One Infinite Presence that is the True essence of all, and that constantly and consistently expresses in, as and through all Life is expressing here now – in my own life, and in the midst of this global circumstance. In this moment and always I stand on the knowing that the Power and Wisdom of Spirit is at the center of all.

Grounded in this Reality, and regardless of appearance; I stand in strength. In the midst of fear, I know peace. In the midst of chaos, I know calm. In the midst of illness, I know recovery and health. In the midst of lack, I know that I am provided, always. In the midst of danger, I know God’s protection surrounds, enfolds, and lifts all to higher ground, to safety.

I stand firmly on this foundation of Truth, and am grateful to know that regardless of the storm, the challenge or chaos; Spirit is present, and all is well.

In calm gratitude and with a deep sense of peace I release my word into the Infinite Law, assured that it returns complete and fulfilled. I speak it, I know it, I let it go. And so it is.
