What words of encouragement could I give?
What could I tell?
To show the Gates of Heaven
Take away the prospects of Hell.
In a World that’s moving so fast,
And that seems sometimes unreal.
How do I breakaway from its dream stage?
How can I be able to touch or feel?
And like in some fuzzy dream
Too hard too measure, not by an inch.
Seems the only way to wake up
Is to give yourself a pinch.
Now that you’re awake
You have lost so much time
“Must keep moving forward”.
“Don’t stumble looking behind”.
Oh what have I missed!
Why couldn’t I see?
Why was I so blind?
Words that curse & yell out to you
From the corners of you mind.
If only I could start over
If only I could start anew.
I’d try to do things better
Yep… that’s what I would do.
Maybe I could learn to sing
Or maybe even dance.
If only I was given another chance.
But how can one as I
Give this rip in time a mend?
To go back to the beginning and be born again
WAIT what did I just say
Let me give this. Another look.
I remember reading about this in some old Book.
You can’t be reborn of the body
Or even of the flesh.
Or something like that
I think…I guess…
But to be reborn in the HOLY SPIRIT
And accepting JESUS CHRIST
To start over again…
That sure would be nice.
Let me research this some more
Where did I put that Book?
I’ve got to learn more
What page in the Bible do I look?
Is this it? John Chapter 3 Verse 3…
I believe that it is.
Whose hands guided me here?
Was it mine or was it HIS?
Like some run away horse
That someone just took its lead.
Let us move forward together now and read.
JESUS answered and said unto him (Nicodemus)
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of GOD.
(Verse 4) Nicodemus saith unto HIM, how can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his Mother’s womb, and be born?
(Verse 5) JESUS answered, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of GOD.
(Verse 6) That which is born of the flesh is flesh.
And that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit.
(Verse 7) Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again.
Did I just read this right?
Let me give this a second glance.
There is a fresh start waiting for me?
I have a second chance!
Well now what do I do?
Where do I start?
To cleanse my soul & body
To free my mind and my heart.
I need to learn more
I need a good teacher.
LORD let me find myself a Church
With a True & Righteous Preacher.
And JESUS will guide me
And I’ll go down the road HE says to take.
And now in
The Holy Spirit
I’ll be finally awake…
