One day I came to the end of the road and in sin, I felt so lost. I had nowhere left to turn and run I stood facing a rugged cross. Even though this life had still a lot to offer, the emptiness I felt inside. Now drew me to that rugged cross, where now I could not hide. With this entire world laid out before me, the time now came to choose. Would I now accept this sacrifice or decide again to lose? While thinking about my destiny, I wondered about that light. Would I ever come to this cross again, or would it finally fade from sight? All these things were going through my mind, but I knew it from the start. Now I had to make the choice, He was knocking at my heart. I looked back at the fun I had, as a child these ways seemed right. Yet as I faced that rugged cross, His truth came shining bright. Tears began to fill my eyes, and I knew what had to be done. I knelt before the rugged cross, and accepted God’s dear Son. All of a sudden, I felt inside, as though my life was clean. It was like all the darkness leaving; His truth could now be seen. Right then I knew that I had found life, and hell had suffered loss. For I received eternal life, at the foot of the rugged cross. The blood of Jesus washed me clean, and His joy it filled my soul. I know I made the right choice, God showed me where to go. So many times, He called my name, but I was to blind to see. Until He brought me to that cross, where Jesus set me free.
THE STORM IS STILL
The waters raged, the thunder crashed, and lightning flashed so bright. The wind was blowing violently, and the daylight turned into night. All who witnessed this fearful sight were paralyzed inside. Surely, death was at the door, there was no place they could hide. So they turned to the one who could help them,crying Lord we parish and still You sleep. This terrible storm has threatened to sink us, and carry us into the deep. He opened His eyes in amazement, and He marveled at their fear and doubt. Here they are with the Son of God, and can still see no way out. He turned and faced the raging storm, and spoke His anointed will. All of His followers just stood in awe, as they heard Him say, Be Still. Then at that very moment, the nighttime turned into day. The clouds were gone, and the storm was over, and the danger gone away. He turned to them and said in wonder, why are you filled with fear? Don’t you know that nothing can harm you, as long as I am here? That is why we must always believe, that no matter what we go through. The storms of life will be powerless, when Jesus lives in you.
