Act of Departure..

Criticism was her interjection,
With feelings of dejection,
The means of continuing her connection,
She was headed in the wrong direction.

Rehab to the streets cold as the north,
She had traveled back and forth,
Looking out her window,
Knowing this was her last course to undergo.

Her nights were filled with dread,
I can't get any sleep, she said,
Fear overwhelms me,
I am a refugee.

Sex and drugs were leaving her empty,
She no longer felt fancy-free,
She longed for a place of safety,
Freedom by death seemed her only guarantee.

As she raced toward the bridge,
Glancing up she saw amid,
Buildings so wide spread,
A sign she hadn't read.

After life assurance details inside,
Her eyes open wide,
A soft voice said, you never have to fear anymore,
As a gentle soul appeared at the door.


Come inside my child,
The soft voice spoke,
Do you know Jesus?
She did invoke.

She held her hand and led her in,
Oh, the peace she seems to have within,
Do you have any qualms?
She asks ever so calm.

I read the sign?
What does it mean?
Life assurance,
How can this be?

We have assurance through Godís promises.
You obtain this assurance, through faith in Jesus Christ,
Jesus died on a cross to purchase this gift,
It's yours free of charge.

I'm a looser there is no hope for me,
I have been in and out of rehab, no guarantee,
I always left empty can't you see?
Would He listen to my plea?

Yes my friend, He will listen to you,
Call on Him,
Ask Him to forgive your sin,
Repeat after me, we will speak to Him,

Dear Lord Jesus, I know am a sinner. I am unworthy of your love and grace. I need forgiveness. I know I can't save myself. I believe you are the true Son of God and that you died on the cross as a substitute for me. I am placing my trust in you - please come into my heart and my life, and make me new. Please be my Lord and Savior. Thank you for this gift of salvation. Amen.

She left that night a new creation,
As she walked out the door the woman gave her a hug,
She yelled Bon Voyage to sin and deception,
From that day on her life had a new destination.

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