Saved

28 years ago I was SAVED and am still being SAVED today.

The word SAVED, as in the Christian sense, has been derided, mocked, and even seen as something negative though it is used in the Bible to denote the idea of soul salvation or rescue.

Even I have tempered the word for fear of how it would be received.

Yet, I have been SAVED from a life of drug and alcohol addiction, a future in prison, and/or a premature death. Scores of people around me have been SAVED from the negative and violent interactions of an emotionally abusive man. My grown children were able to become stable professionals and homeowners despite the dysfunction I inflicted on them in their early years.

And, yes, my soul has been saved from eternal separation from God and that is better than a good thing.

Troubles and Trials can’t hold a Candle to God

You know, in the 27 years I’ve served God, I have been busted, disgusted, betrayed, near death, in pain, and ready to give up. 

BUT, none of those troubles can hold a candle to the countless times God has rescued me, healed me, and provided for me. The list of answered prayers and miraculous circumstances sees no end in sight. 

I must remind myself of this over and over again. 

Spiritual and physical Risk
