It never really made any sense;
From walking from one bar to the other, starting a fight; spending the night in a cell;
To waking up in the morning; living my life in the same pattern; staggering my way home and spending another night in the flowerbed;
There is a emptiness in my heart; and every time I look at the mirror; I ask the same question again; Lord, what is my purpose?
I go to work in the morning; and by the end of the month;
I make lots of money but within a few days; I’ve spent it all; and I can’t even account for a coin; I’m feeling lonely again; lost; confused; I’m back to the borrowing pattern again;
I don’t understand; what is wrong with me?
Everything I touch breaks;
Every move I make turns disastrous;
Everyone I turn to seems to be avoiding me; I’m a MESS;
I’ve made so many mistakes in my life and there is no way of turning back;
I’ve no idea where to start; drugs and alcohol seems to keep me in a world of my own;
Deep inside there’s a lot of anger and hatred;
“Why did God create me in the first place?”
I’m fighting within myself; searching for truth;
Fearing the unknown;
Just the other day; on my way from work; I met this chap and we started chatting;
He told me about Jesus and about his love for me; how he bled on the cross;
He told me that I need to be born again if I have to go to heaven;
I told him that I’ll think about and he promised that he’ll be praying for me
Then he gave me a bible;
When I got to the house; I started reading it;
Genesis 1: I saw God create the whole Universe;
Genesis 2: I saw him make a woman from the rib of a man’s;
Genesis 3: I saw the fall of man; I got more confused so I threw it away;
Got to the favorite joint; took a few goblets of booze and drove myself home …
… that’s when the car rolled away;
I don’t know how I got there but I saw myself in another world, time and place;
I must have been dead cos I saw an angel holding a book;
He looked at me smiled and asked me; “Is your name in the book of life?”
I got to admit; I was taken aback; it has never really occurred to me that this heaven stuff is real;
He told me that the way I lived my life was wrong and my eternal destination was Hell;
And that’s when it dawned on me;
Jesus is real and alive!
Heaven is real;
So I started reflecting back at my life full of regrets;
I wish that I could get another chance;
Then I remembered that the last words I spoke to my wife were unkind
I wish that I could have done things differently;
I wish that I could have spent more time with my family
I wish that I could have told my spouse that I love her every time I talked to her on the cellular
I wish that I could have been a better father to my daughter; I wish that I was there for my son
I wish that I could have spent more time reading and studying the bible instead of watching TV
I wish that I could have gone to church when I was invited
I wish that I listened when they talked about Christ; I wish that I took it seriously
I wish I opened the door when he knocked! Now it’s too late for me;
I wish that nobody I know would ever follow in footsteps or even come to this place;
I wish that my father, my mother, my brothers, my sisters, my relatives; friends, enemies, neighbors and co-workers and everyone that I knew could hear this message;
Mohammed is dead!
Buddha is dead!
Jomo Kenyatta is dead!
Nelson Mandela is dead!
BUT JESUS is ALIVE!!!
In this life you can only rise or fall;
But don’t be surprised if you fall since you think that God is too small;
There are only two places to dwell; heaven or hell;
There are no shortcuts! and the only way to get to heaven you have to believe;
But not just believing, you have to believe in Christ and in Christ alone;
You only got one heart, one soul, one body and one spirit; one life; don’t waste it;
Put your life in order;
Accept Christ in your life!
… before its too late for you too …
