Why remember God? He takes care of your affairs.

Sometimes, you go through life and you say to yourself, why didn’t I just do this before? Well, I’ve gone through this conversation with myself regarding this topic. For me, I knew of the right path, but the faith and belief was missing. Sadly, I try this method, when everything else fails. When I realize that I have no options left and I am ready to give up, then my stubborn mind turns to God for help. In addition to prayers, remembering God and reciting his name can help sort out our affairs. I used to wonder, does God have time for me? The truth is that we need to stop putting limits on what God can do, wants to do and etc… Just trust Gurbani. Trust that if you are in need, God is your savior and remembering him and reciting his name is the way to connecting to him. In Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, we read:
