My Savior

Elaine Bateman and her

Did you know that almost half a year has gone by already? Recently, as I was taking a very small break during my ever so very busy schedule in the Bateman household, I came to realize that the older I get the faster time goes by!

As memories of my life were flashing back and forth, the thought of my Savior Jesus Christ consistent love for me overcame me with so much emotion and gratitude!

This has been a long journey with Him. One thing has always remained the same and that is Him! The Rock!

Don't get me wrong, He has had to deal with this stubborn and unwilling vessel many times yet He never gave up on me, ever! He is forever faithful, kind, loving. He is my shelter and my best friend.

All along that highway of up's and down's, persecutions, criticisms, murder of my dear father, rape of a daughter, death of children, divorce, loss of closeness of family, loss of home, loss of best friends, remarriage, step-parenting, death threats, adoption, time of refreshing, and right now a time of loveliness in Christ, He has never moved and remains the same!

What a friend! What a Savior!

2 Samuel 22:32-35

For Who is God, except the Lord? And Who is a Rock except our God? God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places."

You see my Savior knew I was that vessel that needed a lot of breaking and pruning for me to lay everything down at His feet in order to focus on Him and Him alone. He loved me that much! He sought after me! The awesomeness of this truth overwhelms me at times as it did a few days back during my break!

2 Samuel 22:47-50

The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be exalted, The Rock of my salvation! It is God who avenges me, And subdues the people under me. He delivers me from my enemies. You also lift me up above those who rise against me; You have delivered me from the violent man. Therefore I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your Name.

"My Savior Loves my Savior Lives"

...I am not skilled to understand, what God has willed, what God has planned. I only know at His right hand, stands One Who is my Savior. I take Him at His Word and deed. Christ died to save me this I read. And in my heart I find a need. For one who is my Savior. My Savior loves! My Savior lives! My Savior is always there for me! My God He was! My God He is! My God is always going to be! Yes live and die and let me breathe ....

Close and Personal:

1. Is He your Savior? Your best friend?

2. Have you taken time to sit and ponder on all that He has brought you through?

3. Have you shared it with others as an encouragement?

My dearest Savior, I want to take time today to exalt you your Holy name! Thank you Lord for knowing me forever! Knowing that I would have to be a broken vessel before realizing how much you wanted my total attention and devotion, my Lord! I love you, my Savior!

In Him,

Wow, what a testimony!

When the Lord can show Himself mighty and sufficient in the face of the kinds of trials you've mentioned, He is really glorified!

Thanks for letting Him shine through you.
