What If We Could See Ahead?

With times looking so very bleak, what if we could take a peek?
Of things that lie ahead for us, those who walk with Christ Jesus.
As it is Christ and Christ alone, who plots the path of all His own,
Manís destined path, to fulfill, not manís purpose, but Godís will.

My friend, if indeed man could, look ahead, you think we would?
Knowing that the times ahead, could bring us joy or bring dread.
Is not our tomorrow a mystery, one time in which we cannot see?
Is it Godís shield for all of us, a time for us to employ real trust?

What would be the heart of some, if we knew what was to come?
Within the heart of that individual, if a darker time was Godís will.
God knowing all, who He will test, to be a lighthouse for the rest,
Would it affect how we think, or even cause oneís faith to shrink?

What if some saw no trial ahead; would it skew our faith instead?
Would it cause that heart to swell, with a pride thinking all is well?
Is this why God truly limits man, from knowing Godís entire plan?
While daily guiding all of those, who truly follow Christ who rose?

So we are content in God to know, what pages of Scripture show,
Knowing this is but a temporal time, before an eternal life sublime,
No matter what our life may be, our real home is Heaven, eternally,
When we come to faith in Christ, God promised us an Eternal Life.

He's coming very soon, the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Waiting in Him with Great Expectation,  Bob Gott

Yet another insight into God's protection few of us see as such.  Reviewing my many years, I'm extremely thankful I wasn't able to see ahead.  The heartaches that came would've obscured the happy days that led up to them, had I known what was in store.

Thanks for sharing your talents.

Yes, we must trust God to lead us on the right path. It's called belief. People argue with me that my faith is misguided. I have no proof of God's existence except what he has done in my life. The old saying applys I think "for those who belive no proof is necessary, for those who don't no proof is ever enough."

Oh even I can see that God is wise to not let us know what is to come in the near future.  We would probably just bide our time and let it happen.  But he has told us what is ahead if we ebleive in him and that is what is important.  Joyce
