COME HELL OR HIGH WATER
It’s just an expression to emphasize the fact that I am going to do something, no matter what happens.
To be honest, though, I can’t really say that, can I?
High water alone can stop me.
What happens if I find myself standing before the Almighty God, being asked why I wanted to come into His town.
I may be a blubbering idiot, if I haven’t looked forward to this moment for a long time.
If I am standing there, surprised that there really is a God, then I may suddenly understand why those Christians used to always say that “the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.”
I am very afraid!
I am starting to wish I had gotten some of this wisdom back when I had a chance.
I thought I had figured it all out.
I had said over and over, “How can a God say he loves me but threaten to send me to hell if I don’t love him back?”
Who brainwashed these people?
Of course, there was that one guy who tried to tell me, “He doesn’t send you to hell.
If you suddenly died, and, surprisingly found yourself in a place that you didn’t expect to be, because you had said, “there is no God,” and you were standing right in front of him, would you want to spend eternity with him or away from him?”
I answered, “Away!” And I said a lot of other stuff for emphasis.
He went on, “Then YOU chose!
He let you have what you said you wanted. He had offered you a free ticket, over and over and over…. You said that you weren’t interested.”
This guy had been so aggravating.
Now I am really, really afraid that I may have been wrong!
