I was a long away from home. Bad thoughts, bad choices, and apathy had taken me away to the land of despair. I wanted the Truth, but the Evil One had his talons imbedded in my skull. I was disgusted with my behavior, disingenuous in my efforts to follow instructions as they were given. My fire for passionate change was doused by daily pressures and worries. How dare I doubt the God that created the universe also had me firmly under his care.
Today is September 24th, 2010. Itís Friday. Nothing special about this date. Itís not my birthday, itís not any anniversary. But today is as good a day as any. It is time for me to stop agonizing. The devil has no claim to me. I donít have to accept his deceitful lies. I must renew my vigor for the valiant change The Truth allows me to carry as a shield against all enemies.
Today, I return to my passionate commitment to things eternal and resolve to put my house in order by chasing after the foundation maker. I do not wish to be away from home. The precious gift of salvation is a joy to keep firmly instilled in both heart and mind, and let the talons of the Evil One be swiped away.
