The Good Red Road

Every human being arrives here for a purpose
They arrive with the fire of that purpose
Burning bright within their hearts
Placed there by the Great Father Himself
Warming not only their hearts with hope
But feeding their spirits with promise

He chose each of our journeys along this red road
If we stay true to our paths our spirits grow
Every day new gifts from Him grow along the path
To satisfy our hearts and fulfill our purpose

There are other paths that beckon to us
And there are gifts along this path as well
But they do not satisfy our hearts
And there are brighter fires that burn
Though they do not burn with His light
If we travel the paths that lead to these fires
We may fulfill our desires but not His purpose

To follow these lights is to lose our way
For as we travel toward them
The Fatherís fire grows dimmer
Until your life is filled with many things
Things you chased and hunted with great desire
Only to finally catch them
And discover them dead and rotting in your hand
And then in disappointment you turn back
Only to find the Great Fatherís fire has gone out
Its embers cold to the touch

It is here every true human being must make a choice
To keep following the fires that do not warm
And the paths that do not lead anywhere
Or go back to the sacred chosen path
And relight the Fatherís ceremony fire

One path is that of the jagged road
The other is the path of the sacred circle
One path leads to many seemingly wondrous things
That will cost you nothing but your soul
The other path leads to Him
And will cost you everything but His love



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
