In this life that we live there is a point of no return, I was close to it, I felt its presence, it was a feeling like that of no other, it was the feeling of me facing my own mortality. During my sickness the closer that I drew to the point of no return I began to regret how I lived my life, my dark drunken days, my even darker drunken nights, my wicked tongue, my volatile ways, my vengeful acts, all of my sins I watched with eyes swelling, tears in the making, my past I watched in disbelief, many painful memories. I sat at the head of the table, I feasted with the spiritually malnourished, full of sin I was, I was not prepared to cross the point of no return. After viewing my sin filled memories I prayed to Him daily, I prayed for another chance to prepare myself for the point of no return, He heard my prayers, He blessed me, another chance I was given. I did not squander my blessing, my diet I changed, I repented, His words of truth I now consume daily, spiritually malnourished I am no longer. I continue to pray, He continues to bless me, my Lord and Savior, He goes with me, I am now prepared to cross the point of no return.
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
The point of no return……
