No Easy Way Out

I heard the other day about a person
who wanted to commit suicide.
But the person's effort
was by Jesus put aside.

"It's You, Jesus!" the person said.
I'm glad to get out of my trials and woe.
Jesus said,"There is no easy way out, you ended
your life before your faith had time to grow."

Then the person said, "You mean I can't stay here -
that's what I want to do."
Jesus said' "You have many more years to live.
and what I say is true."

Dear friends, this is what was said;
God won't accept you in Heaven that way.
Run the full course, let your faith grow.
You can endure all things with Jesus each day.
