Have you heard this song at your church? Did you like it?
Philip Paul Bliss who lived from 1838 to 1876 wrote “Almost Persuaded.” Hear the original song and read the words at https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/1046 Recently, we heard it on a old CD sung by George Beverly Shea.
The song has quite a message, but it lacks a grand finale. Here is the final verse that belongs there. Or, this could be a separate song. See what you think of my poem:
Yes, I’m persuaded now to believe!
I invite Jesus the Savior to receive;
His forgiveness I see I need,
His Words I do now heed,
His grace now fills my heart,
My life has a new start!
Thank You, dear Lord.
This new verse can be sung with a big smile on your face. You can have the amazing peace of mind when you’ve thought it through and made that wonderful decision.
Not sure about it yet? You can talk to your Creator right now. Discuss what’s on your mind. Realize that what’s out in the Universe did not just accidentally come into being from some lonely, tiny cell. You were not an accident. You are a valuable human with tremendous possibilities for doing life very well now, and for transitioning to an eternal life that has no end.
