This is something I wrote while I was studying prayer and psalms.
I had it on my blog last year, but I wanted to share it again. Hope you enjoy it. I call it deal or no deal…
I have a book, and each day I write down my sins. Every day, every month, every year the book has been getting bigger and bigger. If I tried to carry it, I would not be able to stand. Therefore, I drag it along behind me. Sometimes I open it up to review my sins with a quart of ice cream and some tissues. The burden is getting more than I can bear. Yet, this is my life. I have created this book and I deserve to live with this heavy load.
One day a voice called out wanting to buy the book from me. I could not understand why anyone would want my book. How much would I have to pay to take it away? I certainly did not have that amount of money. What would I need to do? I heard the voice again. “This transaction will benefit both of us. It will not always be easy. I will take your book as it is today and all future pages. In return you will pray, listen when I call you, tell others about me, and read this little black book that I am giving you to replace the one I am taking. Do we have a deal or not??”
