Condemned: (God is waiting for you.(click for more) The sweet memories brought little comfort, but stirred a greater remorse.  They served as a summons to a judgement, not of what he had accomplished in life, but to a conviction of his pressing failure and loss.  Love heard a proclamation of death, much like a murderer standing before his judge for the sentencing of his crime.  The courtroom of his life had convicted him.  The smiles of the past had been the jury that delivered the verdict.  

"What value does my life have," he wondered to himself.  "We are all irrelevant.  All we do is consume."

John 3:18, Psa 31:10, Psa 32:4-7:  “whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away. For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. 

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah. 

I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD," and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 

Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him. 

You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah.

Our Loving Father waits for the prodigal son or daughter to return. All you have to do is to initiate an honest conversation with Him in prayer. God lends his ear to the humble. "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.  Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
