Remembering God needs to be a constant in our lives.

Always remember God and it will help us in our day-to-day life to show our faith, hope and love.
Think about God’s greatness, goodness, and righteousness. Share good things that God has done.
Desire to have God in your life. Long for God’s presence in your life.
What you think about shows what is in your heart.

When Paul thought of Timothy he thought of his faith. May we be remembered that way.
Remember God and he will remember you.
