Life as I know it has ended. No longer do the things of this world entice me. I am dull to the enticements of the flesh. For what was once beautiful is now ugly to me. What once had the allurement of pristine passion is now putrid to my soul. What has happened to me? Why do I no longer desire the satisfaction of my basest nature?

Once, I listened to the calling of the wicked with ears pricked in anticipation. In that day the call to rebel was met with my utmost support. The modern day gods scream with their profane music, and tell us to forsake all that is good. To them all that is evil is pleasant and righteousness only brings forth bitter resentment. They promote a Godless realm filled with lust and perversion; and deny that there is no divine justice. I met their sentiments with approval - I bowed to their lies.

What has awakened in me that I now repel at their wretched commands? Why do their antics no longer amuse me or stir me so? Surely there was nothing in me capable of such a change. I do not understand how what once was so pleasing is now so repulsive. This change of heart could only have come from outside of myself.

Something glorious has happened. Oh - truly a miracle! The Lord has changed me and stirred me so. By His power and His Spirit do I now no longer desire evil. By His grace do I yearn to glorify His name! Oh - the end of my wretched life is but the beginning of life anew in Christ. Blessed is the death that caused me to die to myself and then to rise up. Blessed ending that yields to a fruitful beginning. Oh wonderful faith that has now begun!

Interesting article that speaks of a true conversion.
Question: The line that says "and deny that there is no divine justice" - did you mean to leave out the word NO and have it read "deny that there is divine justice?"

This is great! It reads as almost epistle-like, in a modern setting. Really good job.
