Precious memories, unseen angels
Sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger, ever near me
And the sacred past unfolds
As we bend our knees and pray, there is this wonderful feeling we feel after talking to God. Prayers can lessen the pain we feel during our downfall. Also, prayers are used to communicate with God. We do not have to be perfect to get close to Him because what He counts is the sincerity of the words we speak towards Him. As we get close to Him, failures come not to give burden in our life, but for us to trust in the Lord more.
From the title itself, you will already have an idea what the song talks about. For me, the precious memories I will forever treasure are the moments God sent me into this world. That is a precious time when God gives me a life with a purpose. My purpose is to serve God wholeheartedly. Yes, I might sometimes disappoint or fail Him, but still, He does not abandon me.
Thank you, God, for this wonderful life you have given me.
