Why Did God Save Me?

Why Did God Save Me?

Everyone and his Daddy knows what happened to me February 2006. My husband, son, my future daughter-in-law and I were on our way to Tuskegee, Alabama to my Mom’s Memorial. We never arrived. A drunk driver ran us off a bridge in Calera, Alabama onto a set of railroad tracks on a rainy Saturday morning. The two women survived but the two men did not.
While I was in the hospital, I would often lay in my bed wondering why did I survive. Certainly it was not because I was the good one. I knew God had a purpose but I didn’t know what his purpose was. The answer always alluded me. Until today I was listening to PBS 01/28/2017 at about 3:00 p.m. Alabama time. People from every walk of life who were honored at Carnegie Hall; often said they were saved to save some else. I then asked myself: Who did I need to save? Myself perhaps?
Then I thought no. God saved me. He could have saved some one else if He had wanted to. He wanted to make a point. He wanted me to save some one else and I did. I may have made more enemies in the meantime but with fear and trembling I did what God wanted me to do.
You are welcome! Maybe not today or maybe never. But be sure you were saved. Perhaps not today or ever you will realize it was me that saved you but be sure there were others that figured you out. I was only the catalyst God used.
