A Love Worth Dying For


This post is not mine, but when I read it, I firmly believed it was worth the share.  I do want to add my reflection on this though.  Read, be encouraged and share!
This is a true story of Mother’s Sacrifice during the Japan Earthquake.
After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supporting by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescuer team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping that this woman could be still alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away for sure.
He and the rest of the team left this house and were going to search the next collapsed building. For some reasons, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruin house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his had through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body. Suddenly, he screamed with excitement,” A child! There is a child! “
The whole team worked together; carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3 months old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mother’s dead body. Obviously, the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice for saving her son. When her house was falling, she used her body to make a cover to protect her son. The little boy was still sleeping peacefully when the team leader picked him up.
The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside the blanket. There was a text message on the screen. It said,” If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” This cell phone was passing around from one hand to another. Every body that read the message wept. ” If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” Such is the mother’s love for her child!!Reference:

Reflection:
After I read this story, I was truly touched at this young mothers love for her child and the message on her phone brought me to tears.  Then this came to my heart and my mind.  God does the same thing for us.  When the walls come crashing down around us, He holds us and protects us.  When all seems lost, we have a message from Him to remind us of just how much He loves us, enough to sacrifice His only Son to give us life.  And when we  are in our darkest hour, He sends His people to help us and restore us.
My dear friends, if you have ever wondered just how much God loves you and just how much He longs to draw you near, let this story remind you of just how special you are to Him.  May God Bless you, heal you and restore you, as you are a blessing to God and He loves you more then you will ever truly realize!
