"March PROMPT"

What would this world be like without God intervening in our lives?

His love is the Greatest love ever. Too bad that Jesus had to die for us to be saved. If we could have been good to start with. Makes you wonder what life would be like if Adam and Eve had not eaten that apple to start with. It also makes you think what would life be like if Jesus had not died for us. Would we have had to continue the sacrifices of animals to cleanse our souls?

Your prompt is What would your life be like if there was no God intervening in your life and chaos was about you? Now, this is SHOW vs TELL. Show me with words! If you wish you can add scripture to it.

Here are your prompt words GOD/JESUS, CHAOS, TURMOIL, SACRIFICE/SACRIFICES, SAVE/SAVED highlight it in {GRAPE} for these beautiful old eyes of mine... lol In addition if you use a verse highlight it as well in {GRAPE}. The person or persons that do both will get an extra gift.

Please BOLD and COLOR IT in GRAPE so it stands out for my eyes, the rest in BLACK... LOL, It is much easier for me. Thank you *Heart*

Please NO more than 20 lines and make sure you read all the RULES, SORRY to repeat but sometimes you have to. I wouldn't want you to disqualify yourself. Rule # 9. Please add word count, line count, the verse used, and the prompt to the BOTTOM of your page.
