It all ends here for me tonight, like countless other humans that have plunged into nothingness.
Those foolish ones that cling to the idea of some happy afterlife waiting before them need to get a life. One almost has to laugh when the phrase, “get a life,” gets tossed about in this life time.
The grim reaper, if he even exists, is the one who wins out in the war of uselessness and ugly nothingness.
I think of a time when things were full of life, and the colors of the rainbow and flowers were teeming with hues so beautiful, they are hard to describe.
I look up to the ceiling of my deathbed, and I am shocked with what I see. I do not believe in angels, but I see one looking me in the eye, while shedding a tear.
“I know when you were a boy of 9 years of age, you accepted Christ as your savior. You are much loved by the Lord, but your lack of hope has caused him much pain over the years, along with the fact that you wandered into sin and darkness.” The beautiful angel floats nearer and whispers.
I immediately feel remorse creep into my soul as the beautiful angel continues to cry. I reach out and touch the wondrous creature’s soft cheek. Something inside me suddenly comes to life. All at once, I feel tears of shame streaming down my face.
My faltering mind takes me back to that day I gave my life to the Lord, and I recall the glorious hope I felt at that moment. Suddenly, I realize the truth and I long for the feeling once more.
“Dear Lord, I am so sorry Jesus for my lack of hope and faith in you. I now have hope Lord, I am ready to come home.” I cry out.
As I draw my last breath, a smile crosses my face. Now, at long last, I have hope for an eternity with Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.
