Jamey Johnson’s “I Remember You”

I remember you, I was there when you were born
I held your mamma’s hand and your daddy’s too
I remember you, I recall the very day
You turned against the Devil and you cried out my name
His album portrays that though we may encounter bad or wrong decisions in life, God is still with us to block negative outcomes and enable us to face a brighter future.
“I Remember You” shows a conversation with God through prayer. When you pray to God, you must also learn to devote yourself to him and trust his will. The wish that you prayed for may not be granted now, but don’t give up. Just put your trust in trust Him. When struggles come, be closer to God and keep the faith stronger. God sent you to your parents for them to take care of you. Perhaps, the lyrics show that God is with you when you were born. He guides your parents and your family became his instrument. He didn’t let the devil come close to you.
