Pray to Accept Jesus...
I realize that I am not perfect. Living life on my own is not easy, I need Your help, I choose today to accept the love You give me through Your Son, Jesus, and I will follow You the rest of my days. Thank you for Your forgiveness and life in eternity with You. In Jesus name. Amen.

Twas the Night Before Jesus Came
‘Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house. Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care In hopes that Jesus would not come there.
The Children were dressing to crawl into bed, Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head. And Mom in her rocker and baby on her lap Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.
When out of the East there arose such a clatter, I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!
When what to my wondering eyes should appear But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here. With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray , I new in a moment this must be THE DAY!
The light of His face made me cover my head. It was Jesus! Returning just like He had said. And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth, I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.
In the Book of Life which He had in His hand, Was written the name of every saved man. He spoke not a word as He searched for my name; When He said, “It’s no here,” my head hung in shame.
The people whose names had been written with love, He gathered to take to His Father above. With those who were ready He rose without a sound, While all the rest were left standing around.
I fell to my knees, but it was too late; I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate. I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight; Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.
In the words of this poem the meaning is clear; The coming of Jesus is drawing near. There’s only one life and when comes the last call, We’ll find that the Bible was true after all!
