Certain As Can Be

Friend, as certain as anything can be, my life is set for eternity,
Not only in eternity will I stand, but presently Iím in Godís hand,
Inscribed in the palm of my Lord, my life, by God isnít ignored,
Itís fashioned daily by Godís will, as His purpose He shall fulfill.

While Godís the Potter Iím the clay, which He molds day to day,
Forming my life, per His desire, at times through a flood or fire,
For Godís Purpose, not for mine, through every season of time,
Achieving purpose only God can, within the lives of mortal men.

Through it all God grants peace, as His presence doesnít cease,
Peace beyond what I understand, as God holds me in His hand,
Unfolding His Plan in my life, as I follow The Lord, Jesus Christ,
As God molds this lump of clay, around His purpose every day.

He works in ways I canít explain, so who am I to ever complain?
God, my Maker and The Creator, and He is my Lord and Savior,
Who came to be Godís sacrifice, so that I could live in Paradise,
Not just to live upon this earth, but in a mansion of eternal worth.

Uncertainty here weíre sure to see, but that pales next to eternity,
Where everything will be secure, and this my friend, forevermore,
A security we canít comprehend, from this place that has an end,
But this security weíre assured, by Jesus Christ, the Eternal Lord.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

Although suffering, you are reveling in the Lord's security beyond what you feel here to that of eternal life with Him.  I'd never thought of it in those terms before, Bob.  Thank you for posting these gems of life for us to learn.

God bless!

"Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!"

Amen to that!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Maranatha!
