SAVE ME, LORD!

He was afraid and started to sink down in the water. “Save me, Lord!” he cried. – Matthew 14: 30

I am living my best life now. Yes, I really am! But only because Jesus saved me. When I was a child, my parents separated. It shattered me and my brothers, and it deeply affected us. I was sinking. But I must have cried then, “Save us, Lord. Save me, Lord!” God heard my cry. He saved me. And He would do it again and again.
When I started a family of my own, it went well at the start. But an avalanche of problems and trials came. We lost our firstborn twins. Our family business was collapsing. We were deep in debt. My marriage was in serious trouble. And the last straw was I was diagnosed with an illness that would kill me in months.
Through all these I cried again and again, “Save me, Lord! I’m drowning.” And over and over again, Jesus pulled me up. He saved me not because of, but despite of who I am! At times I would even hear Him say, “What little faith you have.” Yet, more often I’d feel His embrace as He says, “Trust in My love. I will never let you down.”
Now, I stand taller and stronger — with my family, my ministry and my businesses — but again, only because Jesus saved me! Alvin Barcelona (kpreacheralvin@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Do you feel that you are sinking now? Drowning? Dying? Cry out to the Lord. He hears you.

Save me, Lord! Pull me up. I take Your hand. I hold on tight. And will never let go of You again. Amen.
