WHAT IS NEXT

I do know what is next while I am

Still living in the past.

I have so much there to live for

Determining what lasts!

.

.

Remembering God’s loving call,

Through loss, then comfort comes.

Urging forward repeatedly

In spite of bitter moans!

.

.

Considering the loneliness

Involved in glancing back,

I am forced into thinking gratefully,

That He kept me on track!

.

.

Often I am kept wondering,

Especially through dark nights,

With knowledge of eternity that

Land that is so full of light!

.

.

Bright light of God!  Through the darkness now,

While past predicts the present,

Light, full knowledge, prophetically,

The future effervescent!

.

.

Convincingly, the future holds

The brightest of all prospects.

All I know is what Jesus promised,

His futuristic concept.

.

.

Many others, I am thinking,

Utopias’ by the dozen,

Laughingly Nirvana, forget it!

Forever sleep for the chosen.

.

.

Now, I am chosen for  “delights

In the Lord.”  This He will give

You the desires of your heart, with

Him I have chosen to live!

.

.

Many mansions, planets galore,

Forever!  No limit to space!

Forever, no end, eternity!

See everywhere, His face!

,

,

Eternity, identity!  Yes,

You will still be you!

Forever identifiable

Once out of this zoo!

,

,

Consider this, “I will return

That you may be with me.”

To dwell forever in Heaven-land!

In blissful  liberty!

,

,

Can any promise with this compare?

Whatever else is true?

No, nothing can come anywhere near

What He has promised you!
