The word “savior” can have so many meanings to so many different people. You can think of someone as their savior because this person saved him or her from a difficult or awkward situation. You thank them for being there when you needed them.
When I think of savior I think of it in two different ways. One way is how many people were like our little saviors helping us through the difficult time of Mari being in the hospital or after she died.
The other way, and the main way for me anyway, is my Lord and Savior. The obvious (and of course most important) is that He is the one who sacrificed His life for all of us by dying on the cross for our sins. He did this with unconditional love. We all try to achieve or give unconditional love throughout our lives but God is the only one who knows how to do this perfectly. I mean, who could, or even would, allow their one and only child, son, to die for everyone else in the world. Our own humanness would come to the forefront and we just couldn’t. I know we would mean well but that would just be so hard. Yet, our heavenly father did just that for us.
But for me the word “Savior” means so much more. Our Savior Jesus Christ has been there for me through the most difficult time in my life. I could not imagine having lost our daughter and then not being a born again believer in Christ. I might have become bitter or so angry I couldn’t see straight. I could have gotten in a severe depression to the point of not wanting to live or even killing myself. I could have alienated myself from all my friends and family who love me so much due to the pain and hurt inside. I just would plain flat be a different person without Christ.
It is because of our Savior I AM doing ok today. I have found out that writing has become an outlet. I used to hate writing but now love to do it. God has shown me that out of such a terrible tragedy something beautiful can come out of it.
I continue to grow as a person through all of this. I know that my daughter is waiting for me up in heaven and I will have the privilege of seeing her again one day due to God’s promise by sending His son, our Savior. I thank the Lord for all He does in my life and those around me. He has taken care of us when we needed it most. I know that no matter what come across my path that He WILL be there for us. I thank the Lord every day for our Savior.
