The times when I feel alone and scared, You are there to offer strength and encouragement. You never turn your back on me despite how many times I turn and run the other way. I have cursed, blamed and walked away from You, yet you still forgave me with arms wide open. You gave me a choice, to turn to You and live my life my way. I chose to live for You, yet I have turned the other way also. But yet You have never rejected me.
At times when I felt alone and in the waters of life almost drowning, I was never alone. For You were there to help guide me, and lead me to safety. You offered me a chance at a second life,and yet I ran other way. You were still there to forgive me,despite what I have done not to receive forgiveness.I have missed the mark on so many levels yet You still love me. You still choose to send Your only Son to die on the cross for me. I put Him there yet I am still offered eternal life.

Would you like to follow the Romans Road to salvation? If so, here is a simple prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation. The words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation! “God, I know that I have sinned against you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness – the gift of eternal life! Amen!
Jesus choose to die on the cross so that we might have a chance at eternal life, why because He loved us that much. He does not want any of us to spend eternity away from Him. All of this is true any questions feel free to ask. Happy reading.
