Remembering

When life is challenging — as it so often is — we can gain strength and a sense of perspective by recalling other times when we, and others, made it safely through the storm.

Giving Thanks

Gratitude can be a lifeline when we are feeling overwhelmed; taking time out from the chaos to remind ourselves of the blessings we have received.

Praise and Remember

In Faith and Trust

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
O my soul.

I will praise the Lord throughout my life;
yes, I will praise; I will praise,
I will praise the Lord, even now.

I will praise the Holy One
in my confusion, in my sorrow, in my anger;
I will praise, the Lord, even now.

I will remember the redeeming story:
the history of the Eternal’s faithful love.
I will remember.

I will remember Abraham and Sarah,
Hannah and Naomi, Jacob and Esau,
Moses and Miriam, Samuel and Solomon,
Joshua and Joseph.

I will remember
those who kept faith in dark times,
who hoped in the Lord when it seemed that all was lost.
I will remember… when it seems that all is lost.
I will remember, even now.

I will praise the Lord
who frees the imprisoned,
who gives sight to those who cannot see.

I will praise the Lord
who eases the burdens of the weary
and lifts up those who have fallen down.
I will praise the Lord, even now.

I will praise the Lord of the wanderers and the lost,
the ever-faithful One who leads us safely home.
I will praise the Lord of love and life.
I will praise the Lord, I will praise the Lord,
I will praise the Lord, even now.

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

Amen.
