Saved Or Lost?

it's the Titanic exhibit that has been on display in select museums across
the country. My friend told me about the re creation of the Titanic's grand
staircase, the simulation of one of the ship's cabins, the artifacts that
have been retrieved from the Titanic's watery grave. As you enter the
exhibit, you're given a ticket with the name of one of the ship's passengers
or crewmen. At the end of the tour is this large wall with two lists of
names, one short list and one long list. Next to each name is one of four
designations: first class, second class, third class, and crew. But no
matter what your class, your name ultimately appears on one of those two
lists which are under one of two headings "Saved" ... "Lost."
Most of them did not have a choice. But we do. What will it be?

I was about as lost as one could get. In my anger and my youth did not help any.
I gave God an ear full for about 13 years. I was a rebel and I was Gothic.
Then in 1986 something inside me said enough. I changed and mended my ways and found God again. I have wasted many years of my life and I have much to make up for.
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Augustine and Francis of Assissi were both persons with "wasted" lives. Neither would have been the great teachers they became if their lives had always been dedicated to God.
