Repent and Live



I just want to say that I believe God gives everyone in their lifetime a chance to hear about his word before they die, otherwise there would be no point of heaven or hell. In the case of children dying, well they are already of heavenly value because they haven't changed to the ways of the world. I always knew of God but I never took the opportunity to completely commit my life to him...

One night I was in my apartment, and all day I was thinking about my life and the situations I was putting myself in. My friend walked through the door, and I saw her as an angel. She was glowing, and I saw her as an innocent child. This was God communicating with me and saying that he was here. If I didn't make a change soon I would lose him forever. I immediately went into my room and started pouring down with tears. I asked God to change my life for the better because I knew the way I was living wasn't going to allow me to live much longer. I told him that I was sorry for everything and that if you help me I will live completely for you...

God completely changed my life...
