I was reflecting this morning on the phrase "all is lost".

It sounds like the most terrible, most dreadful, most hopeless, most painful, circumstance possible. It never is, except for 1 very specific, most crucial point in our lives. That is over the precipice in the unforgivable sin, final impenitence.

For those who reach that point, all is lost indeed. Their choice is made. There are no more second chances.

For those of us who are not at that point today, we may be tomorrow. Today is our second chance. It is our choice to either stay-the-course on the wide road or to amend our lives, benefiting not only in eternity but right now.
