This Savior Knows
Do you know how amazing our Savior is? I don’t think you do. You have
all He does for you. You have no idea what He doesn’t do that He could do.
This God KNOWS you. He knows you in a frightening way. He knows all the
secrets you wouldn’t tell a soul. He knows what you do in private. He
goes through your mind when certain people walk into the room.
He knows what you do right and what you cannot do right. He knows your
and your peeves. He knows your kindnesses and your abominations.
This Savior knows…and this Savior wouldn’t tell a soul. He wants
others to see
you in a good light. He wants you to represent Him with the honor you
someday have. And He represents you the way you one day will be; though
today you have no idea what that means.
Your Savior has not a single weakness but still desires to overlook
yours if you’ll
just stop reminding Him about them. He keeps public things public and
He is the friend I don’t deserve. He is the Partner content to let me
only Person never embarrassed to be seen with me and goes along
invite Him. He is the Judge that forgives my offenses and the one
into war with me who cannot be defeated. When I’m wounded in battle He
protects me with His own armor and He goes toe to toe with the enemy,
and true, though sometimes I forget whose side I’m on.
He loves me enough to let me fall if I’m taking the wrong step and
I’ve done my worst He picks me up and dusts me off and hugs me while I
and puts healing salve on my wounds. He waited for years and years for
see Him for who He is and yet today he will wait patiently for me to
while I look around and forget what I’m doing.
When I misspeak He corrects it and when I break things He fixes them
I’m drained and empty He fills me up and renews me.
My Savior has never left me nor forsaken me thought I’ve done it to Him a
billion times. My Savior lights the path and steadies my footing and
when I close my eyes in fear. He provides food and drink and rest, and
and cries with my joy and pain.
He doesn’t need me but He wants me. He doesn’t need my help but He
to work and then blesses me for things done right. Though I was
He took me in He made me something. When I had nothing He wanted He
destroyed the junk and gave me His best…and just when I know I’ve
once too often and He could never take me back, He reminds my repentant
heart that could never happen…not in all eternity.
He started something and He will finish it and nothing can pry me from
The most astonishing thing about my Savior is He knows me from head to
and inside out and He still calls me friend. When I doubt He puts His
my shoulders and we walk; when I fear he gives me a glimpse of heaven;
am lost, He shines…oh, how He shines, and He lights the way home.
