You don’t understand. I’ve gone too far.

No. You haven’t. Maybe on your own terms, or your own strength. Maybe as far as other people are concerned.

But with God? . . .


Several years ago someone called my home in the dead of night. When I answered there was silence.

“Who is this?I asked.

“I’ve gone so far that I can’t turn back,” he said in tears.

I didn’t try to reason with him, or to share with this beautiful young man how to overcome the sin that had led him far from who he was, because you see, that wasn’t working.

“Turn around. Walk in to God’s arms,” I said softly. “He’s been waiting for you.”

Today that young man is a father, a husband, and one of the most God-filled people I’ve ever met.

To live free: At a dead end? Ask God to show you the way back.

Scripture: Acts 2:28 – You have shown me the way of life, and you will fill me with the joy of your presence.

Just You and God: What does it mean when it says He will show you and me “the ways of life”? The ways of life (ὁδους ζωης [hodous zōēs]) mean: Though dead, God will show him the ways back to life.

Wow. That’s powerful. You might feel you’ve hit a dead end. Others may say you are beyond help. Seriously. Do we believe them? Or do we walk into the arms of God and let him resurrect you with His love and show you the way back to life in Him?
