Alone and dusty, I sit on this desk. I beckon to you as you pass by with worries consuming your every thought. With a gentle touch, you lift me into your life and Read the words "Holy Bible" etched into my flesh as your tears wash away the dusty past.(50)
Forever, it seems, I have held you in my realm of pain, sorrow, and sin. Together we have hurt others and brought misery to all we meet. Now, after hearing the words of your new friend, you cast me away as you pray to God for forgivness.(47)
You drive your car at dangerous speeds in an attempt to escape your haunting past. When you see me standing in the roadway,with outstretched wings as white as purity, you press the brake pedal firmly.Through tears of praise, You see the truck overturned in the road ahead.(49)
A Letter From Within
I am sending you this message to inform you I can no longer reside in your body. I have eaten away at cells and marrow throughout your system and was advancing rapidly. Now that you have prayed in unwaivering faith, God is evicting me and I must leave you immediately.(50)
You accepted me into your life many years ago,and have lived your life as a reflection of my love. Through your work, you have helped so many others find redemption and accept my gifts. Your work on earth being through, I bring you home to rest in my arms.(50)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Kevin, I can see you really got into this challenge! A suggestion: Forgiven and The Guardian, how about writing them not as if you are speaking to someone else, but as if you are speaking yourself. Turn these into
a personal experience type story and see what happens. My favourite one is 'A letter from within'. Well done!
Excellent contribution Kevin. The Letter From Within was my absolute favourite. What a faith builder (hmmm, maybe that's why you entitled these "Stories for Growth") ;-) You most definitely rose to the challenge! With love, Deb
