We Will Never Forget…..


“I remember my affliction, my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.’ ….. Though grief comes, He will show compassion; how great is His unfailing love. …

Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord… ‘We have suffered terror and pitfalls, ruin and destruction.’ Streams of tears flow from my eyes because my people were destroyed. My eyes will flow unceasingly, without relief, until the Lord looks down from Heaven and sees. What I saw brings grief to my soul. …

But I called on your name, oh Lord, from the depths of the pit. You heard my plea: “Do not close your ears to our cry for relief.” You came near when I called you, and you said “Do not fear”.

Lamentations 3:18-24, 32, 40, 48-51, 55-57

“He heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3


We will never forget.

  1. Oh my goodness; this made me tear up. πŸ™‚

    I’d always heard people talk about how they remember when that one rocket (the Challenger maybe?) exploded, and older people remembering when the horrors of the Holocaust were revealed, but I never realized until recently that someday, when your kids or mine read in their history books about 9/11 that I was alive when it happened.

    Thank you very much though for making this, because it’s absolutely beautiful. :’)

  2. It was the challenger. I, however, don’t remember that since I was barely 2 years old πŸ™‚ I obviously wasn’t around for Pearl Harbor, or Kennedy’s assassination. I, too, learned how serious those people were when they say “I remember where I was when…” with this tragedy. I remember exactly where I was when I heard about the Oklahoma City bombing, but I don’t really recall caring all that much. 7 years ago though, and I was plenty old enough to feel bigger emotions than I ever thought possible.

    I always think about when things like this (or smaller things… hybrid cars, new presidents, etc) end up in text books. It’s pretty interesting to realize we’re living in “history”! πŸ˜›

  3. Thanks for taking time to remember and help others recall. God has not forsaken us and He grieves for His people. Let this be a reminder to us all that we are to live a life pleasing to Him that brings Him glory and honor. Hope your day is wonderful!
