Memory is a curious little device isn’t it? According to Wikipedia, it is defined as an organism’s ability to store,retain and subsequntly retrieve information. This is the psychological definition of it and at its root we can see is information. How far back can our memory take us- whats the earliest thing you can easily remember that you haven’t been influenced by anyone? Jodi Picoult’s book Vanishing Acts and its all about memory- bila spoiling the story much, its asking how do you know that your life as you know it is really as it is and NOT the machinations of some really mean person- in the world we live in today its not totally inconceivable that someone would take your life and erase memory (but for serious, does that happen/ is it possible?) and influence you in a zilion other ways too… so really, how do we know that we know what we know and what we know IS? As I have grown older i have accumulated a memory bank and at times a whiff of perfume can take me a few years back when a close friend left town, a list of songs that can easily take me back to a time of my life when I was sad, happy, trustful, eager, excited…. the works. The silliest of things can trigger a load full of memories for me but this song below is sure to bring me to tears each time and yaani…

Precious redeemer and friend
Who would have thought that a lamb could
Rescue the souls of men, Oh You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, comforter, keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost the way, Oh we hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace our
Hearts always hunger for, Oh our hearts always hunger for

Almighty infinite father
Faithfully loving Your own
Herein our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne, Oh we’re falling before Your throne

The Lord is wonderful to me, He is merciful and He is our Saviour too. Together He is the wonderful merciful saviour.

  1. I do know that Unique, I think the whole song is a prayer back to God about His attributes you know. Each of them is a tribute to WHO He is.
