MY FUTURE

Ecstatic in the wonderment as spirit did embrace

Another spirit known to Him a spirit saved be grace.

The joyful laughter from each one each relative and friend.

The laughter, more like singing, that with each other blends.

.

.

And this goes on forever, ah yes, so full complete!

No time or inclination for worry or defeat!

Just joy and peace forever, in fact, what do they mean?

No opposites of joy and peace not here so it would seem.

.

.

A new vocabulary now, hallelujah!  Yes!

I press toward the throne of God, many bow, I press!

His body glorified, I see nail scars in his feet!

The horror of His suffering I can see like a repeat!

.

.

My tears came slowly then a flood, the Savior reaches down.

He dries my eyes then tenderly He places a crown

Of righteousness upon my head.  This crown I do not deserve.

“You do, by virtue of My death, I took your sins.  Observe

.

.

The one you felt was hopeless, a prostitute, she came

I died for her I heard her cry.  She called out My name

I died for her, I died for you.  Now you are both the same!

This ‘Crown of Righteousness’ I give; I give to you in My Name!”

.

.

(His righteousness imputed to me as if I were truly

righteous, and I am in His sight!  “We shall all be

changed, for we shall see Him as He is.”  I Corinthians 15:51-56
