My Earthly End

I could very well see the end, of my life on this earth dear friend,
For, after another hospital stay, the doctors sent me on my way,
With this cancer progressing fast, this life on earth, may not last,
With risk outweighing benefit, it was with God not doctors I went.

The Lord said, threescore and ten, is the time allotted to all men,
My life may be cut short friend, but, for me its not the last bend,
As this life that God has given me, God shall extend into eternity,
So when I take that last breath, I will see life with Christ not death.

But, The Hope, which I embrace, can move with Mercy and Grace,
As God with His healing hand, can do what men wont understand,
For The Lord God, could heal me, as His Testimony, for all to see,
As God extends my earthly life, through the power of Jesus Christ.

Friend either way I have peace, that through this trial will not cease,
A peace, because I know God, Who has led me with staff and rod,
My Lord God, Savior and friend, whos led me through every bend,
The very Author of my entire life, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,

Friend either way I shall win, for I will not die, but enter into Heaven,
And if God should heal me, I shall continue for Him on this journey,
Whatever God may choose to do, my hope is that He touches you,
To move you to a hope in Christ, so you too, can have Eternal Life.

(Copyright 03/2014 Bob Gotti)

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
because of the Lord's great love we are not
consumed, for his compassions never fail. They
are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."The LORD is
good to those whose hope is in him, to the one
who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the
salvation of the LORD. (Lamentations 3:21-26)

Hes coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, well 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)
