One day before the throne of God I will stand with my future in His hands, I pray to hear Him say, "Come my child, enter
my world and your place in eternity."
Peace of mind will be mine, peace and joy will fill my soul as I walk through the pearly gates and greet old friends and
It was not always so, for the days of my past had put doubts in my mind as to whether God would forgive my sinful past.
Then I knew not the ways of truth, I lived a life not becoming a child of God, but one that pleased the flesh and happy
in sin was I.
Blind was I, not realizing that that way of life would land me in the depths of hell if I refused to change my ways, sin
had me in it' spell.
Only by the love and grace of God did I survive and triumph over the sin that kept me from seeing the "Light" that could
set me free.
In the middle of the night Lord Jesus came to me and allowed me to see the "Light" that cleansed my soul and set me free
from the sins that bound me.
From that day forward I changed my ways, humbled myself before the throne of God and thanked Him for reaching down in the
gutter of sin and setting my feet upon solid ground.
From that time on I have strived to do the will of Him who came to earth and took my sins upon Himself as He died the death
that I so richly deserved on the cross of Calvary.
Our loving Savior, Jesus Christ, has the power of life and death in His hand and will give life to all who will change
their ways and come to Him on bended knee.
Leave your past behind, step out in faith looking forward to the day that you will hear Jesus declare, "Now is the day
of redemption, now is the time to turn from your sinful ways and I will bless you the rest of your days."
Submit to the will of God, look not to the past, but look to the future with the assurance that Jesus Christ will guide
you and keep you from falling back into your sinful ways.
The love of Jesus for His creation is so great that it can overcome any and all circumstances that can keep His children
from going astray.
Praise and adore Him as you walk your path of life, follow Him and at the end of your days He will hold your hand as you
enter into the life that He has prepared for those who love and obey.
