Savior, Please

Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love. (Psalms 6:4)

As another year comes to a close, I give thanks to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His hand guided me through a challenging year – filled with highs and lows. During one of those low points, a song came out that really touched me – Savior, Please by Josh Wilson. The following lyric hit home with me the most: “Savior, please keep saving me.”

Although Jesus’ greatest saving work (his death on the cross) was completed once and for all over 2,000 years ago, His saving efforts continue daily. So many times I call on Him for support, and His hand is always there. There’s never a frustrated “Oh what do you want this time” or “Oh it’s you again” response, but rather a gentle, loving response each and every time.

For some trials the help is immediate, while for others, extra patience is required. But there is never a doubt into whose arms I’m going to run when my chips are down; even less of a doubt if the Savior will be willing to save me (again).
