We are all sinful beings. We commit sins intentionally and unintentionally. Sometimes we want to change but we find it difficult to do it. We don’t know where to begin, and we even fear that God may not forgive us for all from what we did. However, God is not like us. God is a forgiving father. He will never forsake us despite all the things we did. God promised that He will always love us and care for us, all we have to do it reach out to Him and call His name.

The Song’s Content
Jesus remembers all of us. There is no one that God doesn’t know. He knows us all personally, even what will happen to us in the future, Jesus knows. Jesus is always willing to help us turn away from all our sins. He always forgives us even if we did something terrible and unforgivable in the eyes of others. We are all precious in the eyes of the Lord. Just like the narrator who was once blinded by the truth and was going through tough times, Jesus helped him. Now he is happy and free by just knowing and accepting Jesus. In return, he praised God for all the things He did.
Let us never forget that we have a forgiving and loving God.
God, gospel, hank williams, Jesus remembered me
