Here is a suggested prayer:
"Lord Jesus, I need you.  Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins.  I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord.  Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life.  Take control of the throne of my life.  Make me the kind of person You want me to be. "

One Thing You Can't Do In Heaven by Mark Cahill
My Friend

My friend, I stand in judgment now,
And feel that you're to blame somehow. 
On Earth I walked with you day by day,
And never did you point the way.

You knew the Lord in truth and glory,
But never did you tell the story. 
My knowledge then was very dim;
You could have led me safe to Him.

Though we lived together here on Earth,
You never told me of the second birth.
And now I stand this day condemned,
Because you failed to mention Him

You taught me many things, that's true;
I called you "friend" and trusted you.
But I learn now that it's too late,
And you could have kept me from this fate.

We walked by day and talked by night,
And yet you showed me not the light.
You let me live, and love, and die,
You knew I'd never live on high.

Yes, I called you "friend" in life,
And trusted you through joy and strife.
And, Yet, on coming to this dreadful end,
I cannot, now, call you "my friend."

He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he cannot lose. 
Jim Elliot 1927-1956

The Bridge Builder
An old man going down a lone highway
Came in the evening cold and gray
To a chasm vast and deep and wide
Through which was flowing a sullen tide.

The old man crossed in the twilight dim;
That swollen stream held no fears for him;
But he turned when safe on the other side
and built a bridge to span the tide.

"Old man," said a fellow pilgrim near,
"You are wasting your strength with building here;
Your journey will end with the ending day;
You never again must pas this way;
You have crossed the chasm deep and wide-
Why build you this bridge at the eventide?"

The builder lifted his old gray head.
"Good friend, in the path I have come,"
he said,
"There followeth after me today
Youth whose feet must pass this way.
This swollen stream which was naught to me
To those fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;
They too, must cross in the twilight dim;
Good friend, I am building the bridge for them.
And God Said, "No"

I asked God to take away my pride.
And God Said, "No."
He said it was not for Him to take away,
but for me to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
And God said, "No."
He said her spirit was whole,
her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
And God said, "No."
He said patience is a byproduct of tribulations.
It isn't granted, it is earned

I asked God to give me happiness.
And God said, "No."
He said He gives me blessings,
happiness is up to me.

I asked God to spare me pain.
And God said, "No."
He said suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to, "Me."

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
And God said, "No."
He said I must grow on my own,
but He will prune me to make me fruitful.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
And God said, "No."
He said I will give you life,
that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me love others,
as much as He loves me.
And God said, "Ah, finally you have the idea!"

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Kent M. Keith, Published by G.P. Putnam's sons
Copyright Kent M. Keith 1968 renewed 2001
People are illogical,
unreasonable, and

Love Them anyway.

If you do good,
people will accuse you
of selfish ulterior motives.

Do good anyway

If you are successful, you will win
false friends and true enemies.

Succeed anyway.

The good you do today
will be forgotten tomorrow.

Do good anyway

Honesty and frankness
make you vulnerable.

Be honest and frank anyway
The biggest men and women with
the biggest ideas can be shot down
by the smallest men and women
with the smallest minds

Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs
but follow only top dogs.

Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building
may be destroyed overnight.

Build anyway.

People really need help but may
attack you if you do help them.

Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have
and you'll get kicked in the teeth.

Give the world the best you have anyway.

Commit your works to the LORD and your plans will be established. PROVERBS 16:3


When young William Borden—heir to the Borden dairy fortune—graduated from high school more than 100 years ago, his father gave him three things for his graduation gift: enough money for a trip around the world, a servant to accompany him and a brand-new Bible. So at just 16 years of age, William traveled throughout Africa, Asia and the Middle East, experiencing a mix of cultures and people.


But the combination of seeing human suffering while simultaneously acquainting himself with the Scriptures caused William's heart to be stirred with a calling from God. He committed his life to prepare for the mission field, and he wrote two words in the back of his Bible: "No reserve."


Returning home, he enrolled at Yale University, where his spiritual devotion and his ministry to the poor and destitute became well known among the students, faculty and community in New Haven. And though he was courted by both Wall Street and the family business upon graduation, he stayed firm in his desire to serve God overseas. During this time he wrote two additional words in the back of his Bible: "No retreat."


While traveling through Egypt on his way to a mission in China, William contracted a form of spinal meningitis. Within a month, he died. He was only 25. Weeks later, as his father was going through William's things, he came across the Bible he had given his son as a high-school graduation present. The list of short handwritten statements in the back now included a third: "No regrets."


No reserve. No retreat. No regrets. Those six words should challenge all of us to be radical followers of Christ. We should live purposefully in our marriages and families, investing ourselves wholeheartedly in the primary people God has given us to love and to lead. Always forward. Always faithful. No going back.


What areas of your life and marriage are crying out for these words (and actions) of resolve right now?
