“The dye has been cast. The decision has been made. I have stepped over the line. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, or back away. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future secure. I’m done with low living, sight walking, small planning, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living and dwarfed goals: I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, positions, promotions, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, live by prayer and labor with power. My face is set, my goal is Heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my Guide is reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and spoken up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of the lord Jesus Christ.” - African martyred for Christ.

Come near to me so I can share,
A secret that is rare,
Bound by truth,
Just as Ruth,
Ever so faithful,
I will share this tale so charmful,
And truly divine,
It will not fail to shine,
As a beacon on a hill,
Bringing the world to stand still,
Of a wonderful gift,
That promised to lift,
Our burden of sin,
That in the end did win,
Our souls over to Him,
We do not accept it as just a whim,
But with all of our heart soul and mind,
We choose to accept it as a bind,
To our Heavenly Father,
That through no other,
Then of His perfect Son,
The impossible could be done,
That death could be defeated,
So that his love could be completed,
In a most amazing way,
To cause a heart to sway,
A spirit to renew,
If only you believe it’s true,
Then listen when I say,
That there will be a day,
When all else fails,
And faith unveils,
The true believer,
Who He will deliver,
At the end,
Just around the bend,
Not before the tares,
As they declare,
But after all is passed,
Then shall the last trumpet blast,
Announcing the Lord‘s return,
For the waiting bride he beckoned
Which forever held true,
Though they are so few,
Forever He will hold them dear,
Because for Him they stayed pure

…but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matthew 10:22

Totally 5 stars! You've got this completely right! I am a Christian and if I weren't, I'd be totally converted, haha! Great writing, great words!
