Yesterday evening, my husband and I attended an Easter program, "Reflections of Christ," at our church. Beautiful music set the tone for the evening, including the song "If the Savior Stood Beside Me."
As I listened to the words, tears stung my eyes as I wondered what the Savior thinks of me. He hears my words and witnesses my actions. More, He knows my thoughts, those ugly, unkind ones that I try to keep hidden, even while realizing that I can hide nothing from the Lord. I ache inside when I think of His disappointment in me.
If the Savior stood beside me, how would I be different? Could I better control my runaway tongue and selfish actions? Could I banish the thoughts that fill me with bitterness and regret? Could I be the kind of person He wants me to be, the kind of person I want to be?
So, for today, I am grateful for the reminder that the Savior is always standing beside me.
