After losing someone, I wish desperately to be able to pick up the phone to call them, to hear their voice. I can at least see their face in pictures. Remembering all of the happy and funny memories from over the years makes my heart twinkle with light. When the world seems to be dark, stagnant, numb, and lonely, memory plays such an important role in bringing the light back.
Lord, enter my heart, invoke my memory.
When my faith is bland,
when my prayer life seems nonexistent, remind me.
Remind me of when my soul first met you,
when in a moment everything changed.
Everything filled with warmth, peace, joy.
Enlighten my mind and soothe my heart.
Recall a moment when you had some kind of enlightenment or spiritual conversion. Sit with the details, the feelings, and the memory of Jesus meeting you where you are.
