Written in Scars by Alan1704
Written in scars
Afflicted wounds of sorrows past
Written in scars
Precious love his sacrifice ours
Grace to me, infinite and vast
My name was in crimson streams cast
Written in scars

|Savannah by S.T.Mann
Savannah. Ah, Savannah - the soft and charming name of a beautiful old city I once knew, oozing with Southern charm. Protected from total destruction from many a storm, and at least one war, by our loving heavenly Father.
Savannah. The soft and charming name of a beautiful young lady I once knew, oozing with Southern charm. Improbably long and impossibly straight hair. Protected from total destruction by her loving heavenly Father.
She showed me the pictures early in our first conversation. She always kept them in her purse, I guess to remind her of the miracle. And maybe in some way to keep close the unknown miracle-Provider!
A car wreck, a year and a half previous. I couldn’t tell the type of vehicles involved (car? pickup? Van?). Nor could I tell the number of vehicles involved.
I didn’t ask who took the pictures, but it wasn’t Savannah. She left the scene on a stretcher. Broken, bleeding and very unconscious. Remaining in the coma for an extended time. Weeks and weeks. And then, one day, she woke up, and her life began again. Well, once the breaks and tears and surgeries healed.
I pointed out the obvious to her – by His grace alone, God had chosen to preserve her!
Savannah was the oldest child in a completely Godless single-parent home, and didn’t know much at all about her loving heavenly Father, her Protector. But she knew in her heart that He existed, and was anxious to learn more!
Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days. (Proverbs 9:20)
In subsequent conversations, we casually covered a lot of basic theological territory in a short amount of time. Prayer. Faith. Grace. Salvation. Right thinking. Forgiveness. Turning the other cheek. Prayer.
And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. (2 Timothy 2:2)
…add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. (2 Peter 1:5-7)
…in everything by prayer….let your requests be made known to God... (Philippians 4:6)
As fast as we were covering ideas completely new to her, I began to wonder how much Savannah was grasping? How much was she understanding within her heart? How much was she able to apply to her own day-to-day life? Was she catching on at all? Would she herself become a child of God?
She told me after the accident, she moved back home with her mom and younger siblings. Clashing with her mom was an ongoing and almost daily problem, and a major one!
One day, Savannah mentioned how the day before, her mom confronted her about some seemingly minor and forgettable transgression. Mom began with an accusation, then quickly upped the ante into a full-blown tirade, and upped the volume, too.
…the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness... (Proverbs 15:2)
Up to this point in her life, this was exactly the type of incident that would widen the rift between mom and daughter / young woman. This time, though, instead of screaming back, Savannah told me she remained silent. Instead of shouting insults back at her mom, she told me she closed her eyes and lowered her chin…
When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you; understanding will keep you, to deliver you from the way of evil, from the man who speaks perverse things… (Proverbs 2:1-12)
…let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. (James 1:19-20)
As she realized Savannah was uncharacteristically not interested in engaging in a screaming contest, mom screamed even louder! Spewing even more vehemence. “WHAT are you doing Savannah? Are you even listening to me?? I am your mother. I am speaking to you!!!”
…avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient… (2 Timothy 2:23-24)
Savannah slowly raised her head, looked her mom in the eye, and solemnly explained – “my friend Sebastian taught me that whenever I feel anxiety…whenever I feel stressed…whenever I am under attack, I should pray; I was praying, mom.”
Yeah, she was catching on!
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. (Proverbs 31:30)
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God. (Matthew 5:9)
