ALMOST AUGUST 24, 2015

“King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets?  I KNOW that you do believe.  Then Agrippa said to Paul, ALMOST you have persuaded me to be a Christian…”  Acts 26:27 & 28

Almost persuaded…now to believe; Almost persuaded…Christ to receive.  Seems now some soul to say “Go Spirit…go thy way; some more convenient day…on thee, I’ll call.  Phillip P. Bliss 1871

**********************************************

For years, and years, I heard Your voice, call

Through life’s foggy haze…

And I meant to come, and… I almost did…

But the path seemed such a maze!

I should have come when Your call was strong,

And direction was so clear;

I hear You still, but Your voice is faint,

And the road’s now filled with fear!

My intentions were good, and I longed to come,

When at first I heard Your voice;

But the longer I waited, the farther I strayed…

And now, TIME has made the choice!

I know the story, how You left Heavens’ Glory,

And died, just to pay my debt.

I wanted to come…and I almost did…

But…I just wasn’t ready yet!

Someday You’ll come, and split the sky…

In just a mere moment…in the blink of an eye.

I’ll want to come…and I ALMOST could;

But when You called…I never would.

Now, mercy is gone! …So I’ll pay the cost;

The saddest words heard…”ALMOST…but lost!”
