Jesus said:                                                                                                                                      "I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME."                                                                                                              Unless we accept Jesus and the sacrifice He made for us not one of us will make it to Heaven and eternal life.                                                                                                                                Christ MUST be the Master and the Lord of your life.                                                                                                                          


Lord, be at my side when I knock on the door;
For I've sullied myself and I know the score.
If not for You, He'd not let me in,
For I am unworthy and covered in sin.

Will You come with me when before Him I stand?
Will You speak for me, will You hold my hand?
For I am afraid Lord, and I am ashamed,
For my body and soul are ugly and stained.

I've been touched by anger and envy and lust,
By greed and vengeance and filled with mistrust;
But since You found me I've tried hard to change.
It's been a slow process but I've rearranged,

The way that I see things, the way that I feel.
It happened when finally I knew You are real.
I invited You in and You changed my life.
I've slipped many times and there've been times of strife,

But You have stuck with me through thick and through thin,
And You never left me, You're my only true friend;
So when the time comes, will You come with me,
For as long as You're there the sin He won't see.

He'll listen to You if You'll speak for me,
He will forgive if You forgive me.
I'll no longer reek with the stench of my sin,
For You saved me and cleansed me and You brought me in.

Hi Judy, A wonderful poem of faith in or Lord and God. I had an exp with God. My father had lung cancer, and I was divorced with an 8 year boy, the two of them were inseparable. - of Greek Orthodox faith, we believe you must sacrifice something you love doing or you have! I sacrificed my clothing (love (clothes) I wore black for a year. I heard a voice - 'If you do that for me my girl, I will heal your father' Sadly he died 1 and 1/2 years later, but, his faith was healed. Hugs - Jenny

Beautiful story. We all have our time and when it comes it is because our work here is done. I just want Jesus to hold my hand when my time comes and to confess me before the Father as I confess Him before mankind. Thanks for sharing. God Bless, JB
