How many time out of curiosity have you gone beyond a sign that read DEAD END or NO OUTLET? Often people are warned of danger and are asked not to go a certain way or perhaps to turn around. Surely, it is for some good reason. Sometimes they will take heed and other times they will proceed in their own way and folly.
Stop! Right where you are for minute! I want you to think about the condition of the world today. Millions upon millions of people have lost their sense of direction. Truthfully, they really don't know where they are, that is, Spiritually, and sometimes mentally they are distraught they are out of it. Now is the time to get a hold on yourself and determine what's going on in your life.
I would like to direct you to make a U-Turn back to God. Most of us have had some kind of experience with God. Maybe by "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep," you know the prayer that your mother or guardian taught you to say before you went to bed. If not that, you were told to bless your food before you consumed it. Or you remember the Sunday School teacher, teaching you about the little baby Moses or the Baby in the Manger.
If you have wandered far away from God, it is high time you make a U-Turn. Certainly the world at large needs to make a U-Turn back to God. I would like to direct you to make a U-Turn back to God. I am sure you have at one time or another, read a sign that said no U-TURN. Don't go so far in sin that death takes you, and you won't have a chance to make a U-Turn to God. My friends, it is perfectly all right (OK) to make a U-Turn back to God. You will be glad that you repented of your sin.
Make Your U-Turn today "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." (Matthew 3:2b KJV)
