Words that draw me to attention
and cause my ears
to perk up.
Things my parents used to say.
Be careful to look both ways before crossing the street.
It’s more important who you are than what you do or how you look.
God knows everything.
That last one is one of my all time favorites.
Always remember that God knows everything.
He knows my thoughts
and the longings of my heart.
He knows how hard I’ve tried and also when I’ve been discouraged.
He knows and looks at me with love and grace
while others might easily misjudge and misunderstand.
He knows everything.
He knows my past, my present and all the days to come.
He knows my scars and tends my wounds
and cares about my deepest fears.
He knows when I’m so weary that I’m tempted to give up.
But there He is. Right by my side. Helping me.
Yes, always remember.
