One Glorious Surprise ~

There is no one,
who has ever seen
nor anyone who’s eyes
have been able to glean.

What God has in store,
for those who believe
the crown of life . . .
one day they’ll receive.

There is no one,
who has ever heard
nor who’s imagination
has been so stirred.

What God has in store,
for those who wait
to enter into heaven
through the pearly gate.

No one’s ears have ever heard,
no one has seen with their eyes
but, I believe His sheep are in . . .
for one big, glorious surprise!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 64.4

For since the beginning
of the world men have not heard,
nor perceived by the ear, neither
hath the eye seen, O God, beside
thee, what he hath prepared for
him that waiteth for him.

1 Corinthians 2:9

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard, neither have entered
into the heart of man, the things which
God hath prepared for them that love him.

My Eyes Are Set On ~

I have my eyes set on,
being with my Lord
it is something . . .
I joyfully look towards.

It’s my earthly goal,
one I will achieve
for it’s by my faith
in His grace, I believe.

I have my eyes set on,
an eternal destiny
how it’s going to be
perfectly heavenly.

It’s a destination,
I’m faithfully going for
for it will be a haven
of peace forevermore.

I have my eyes set on,
where I keep my heart . . .
and there isn’t anything
that can pry the two apart!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves: it is the gift
of God: Not of works, lest
any man should boast.

Matthew 6:21

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

The Holy City ~

I’m on a personal journey,
got heaven on my mind . . .
and the road to get there
I’m determined to find.

The excursion I’ve been on,
is leading me to the gate
but narrow is its path
and straight must be my gait.

For the way from here to there,
has many lures and snares
and I must be on my toes
so to satan’s traps I’ll be aware.

It is a large open road,
it has room for everyone
but one must be willing
to stay on it for the long run.

I’m on a personal journey,
it has a perfect ending
for in the eternal Holy City . . .
with Jesus I’ll be spending!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way, which
leadeth unto life, and few
there be that find it.

Revelation 21:2

And I John saw the holy city,
new Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of heaven,
prepared as a bride adorned
for her husband.

The Road Into Heaven ~

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street of clover
it’s full of dips and ditches
large bumps to get over.

It’s chuck-full of potholes,
to maneuver through
gaps and depressions
with lots of pitfalls too.

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street named easy
it’s full of twists and turns
with curves that are sneaky.

It’s full of detours,
that will slow you down
roadblocks and delays
you’ll have to get around.

The road into heaven,
is on a One Way street
there is no other path . . .
if Jesus you want to meet!

~~~~~~~~

John 14:6

‘Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way,
the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me.”

You Can’t Take It With You ~

Hearses don’t pull trailers,
filled with earthly treasures
they don’t tow your assets
or your worldly pleasures.

They don’t carry the living,
with their prized possessions
they only bring along coffins
to the grave side processions.

You can’t take it with you,
all you’ve got will turn to rust
what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.

You can’t haul away your stuff,
there’s no place in heaven for it
one day all you own and love
you will be forced to forfeit.

There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
all your valuables down here
others one day will disperse.

You can’t take it with you,
so you might as well let it go
for where your heart is . . .
to the world it will show!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20-21

“But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Lord, Tell Us You Love Us

Lord, tell us You love us,
to the earth’s end
remind us that You are
our eternal Friend.

Relay to us how Your love,
is deeper than the sea
remind us to stay grounded
until with You we be.

Convey to us that Your love,
spans the entire universe
remind us that Your power
in our lives You’ll disperse.

Express to us why Your love,
is higher than the sky
remind us to remain rooted
until the day we die.

Lord, tell us You love us,
until we are together . . .
remind that we will be
one day with You forever!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18-19

May be able to comprehend
with all saints what is the
breadth, and length, and depth,
and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with
all the fulness of God.

A Happily Ever After ~

There is a happily,
ever after . . . .
a place filled with joy
eternal laughter.

But until we’re in heaven,
troubles there will be
but, Jesus says until then
to have peace in Me.

There will be a happy,
forevermore . . .
a place where death
will be no more.

But, until Jesus comes,
to rule and to reign
we will experience
sorrow, grief and pain.

There can’t be happiness,
in this world we’re living
but, one day there will be
not one eye found crying!

~~~~~~~~

John 16:33

These things I have spoken
unto you, that in me ye might
have peace. In the world ye
shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more
death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.

I Have Me A Hope ~

I have me a hope,
it is heavenly . . .
a future keeping me
believing steadily.

I’ve set my affection,
on the things above
for Jesus is the one . . .
I’ve chosen to love.

I’m going to have a home,
like nothing I’ve here
a place where not one eye
will shed a single tear.

All my heart’s treasures,
in heaven I have stored
for my next residence will be
with Jesus, Christ my Lord.

I have me a hope,
it’s living and it’s alive
it will sustain me . . .
until in heaven I arrive!

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:2

Set your affection
on things above,
not on things
on the earth.

Colossians 1:5

For the hope which is
laid up for you in heaven,
whereof ye heard before
in the word of the
truth of the gospel;

Philippians 3:20

For our conversation
is in heaven;
from whence also we look
for the Saviour,

Focus On Eternity ~

This year my mind,
will focus on eternity
for I know and believe
it’s my eternal destiny.

I’m not giving thought,
to all the turmoil
I won’t let the chaos
my anxieties embroil.

This year my heart,
calmness will savor
for I know and believe
Jesus is my Savior.

I’m not going to feel,
troubled or distressed
instead I’m going to be
with God at rest.

This year my life,
will be at perfect peace
for each day onto Jesus
all my worries I’ll release!

The Promises Awaiting Me ~

Further than the stars,
that my eyes can see
is the promise of rest . . .
God has awaiting for me.

Higher than the moon,
hanging in the night sky
is the promise of peace . . .
coming from up high.

Wider than the ocean,
deeper than the blue sea
is the promise of calm . . .
standing by for me.

Beyond the sunny rays,
beaming from above
is the promise of bliss . . .
bathed in eternal love.

Beyond all that I envision,
further than all I can see
is the promise of heaven . . .
Jesus has prepared for me!

~~~~~~~~~

“And if I go and prepare
a place for you ,
I will come again

Just Passing Through ~

I’m not meant for this world,
I am just passing through
until up in heaven Lord
I come to rest with You.

So before that day comes,
I will keep on keeping on
and to the Truth and Way
I will continue to be drawn.

I am just an outsider,
traveling on planet earth
nothing that it offers me
has to me any real worth.

For, my treasure isn’t here,
nor is my yearning heart
it’s on the day when I’ll . . .
from this place depart.

I’m not meant for this world,
my home is with the saints
where my true citizenship . . .
for me thankfully awaits!

~~~~~~

Now therefore ye are no more

A Place For Everyone ~

Jesus has prepared,
for everyone a place
all due to His mercy
His love and His grace.

For He made a Way,
to His Father throne
for all He regards
as one of His own.

Jesus has made ready,
heaven for all of us
for anyone who has
put in Him their trust.

For in our fallen state,
we were without Life
so He put onto Himself
all of our sinful strife.

Jesus has prepared,
a place for us to meet . . .
where each of us by name
into heaven He will greet!

~~~~~~~~

John 14:3

And if I go and prepare
a place for you, I will come
again, and receive you unto
myself; that where I am,

A Heavenly Extravaganza ~

One day there will be,
a lavish reception . . .
for all who escaped
satan’s deception.

For those partakers,
of God’s Divine nature
have made Jesus
their Lord and Savior.

One day there will be,
a triumphant celebration . . .
for all who received
the lively hope of salvation.

For those believers,
in God’s Divine favor
have found forgiveness
thru Jesus their Savior.

One day there will be,
a heavenly extravaganza . . .
for all those who did not fall
for satan’s propaganda!

~~~~~~~~

For so an entrance shall be

My Future Home ~

I like interactions,
about my future life
not about this one . . .
full of daily strife.

For up in heaven,
is where I long to be
so that I can at last
Jesus finally see.

I like to converse,
about life eternal
not about this one
full of upheaval.

For I look forward,
to that glorious day
when in the clouds
Jesus takes me away.

I like discussions,
about my future home
for it’s where my mind . . .
often drifts and roams!

Got Me An Inheritance ~

I’ve got an inheritance,
that is enduring . . .
it is a permanent one
that is everlasting.

It will not rust or erode,
nor will it fade away
it is an assurance
to heaven a gateway.

I’ve got an inheritance,
that is indestructible
it is a resilient one
that is untouchable.

It will not corrode or rot,
nor will it disintegrate
it is worth more than gold
it will never de-valuate.

I’ve got an inheritance,
in heaven it’s reserved
and without Jesus
it’s one I don’t deserve!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3-4

Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto a
lively hope by the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you,

New Things God Wants To Do ~

New things in you,
God wants to do . . .
a true believer He wants
to make out of you.

He wants to take you,
where peaceful waters flow
so into eternity . . .
with Him you will go.

New things in you,
God wants to perform
so to His ways
you’ll want to conform.

Out of this world,
He wants to take you
so white, pearly gates
you may enter through.

New things in you,
God wants to do . . .
so onto streets of gold
with Him you’ll walk too!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:18-19

Remember ye not the
former things, neither
consider the things of old

Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way in
the wilderness, and rivers
in the desert.

Revelation 21:21

And the twelve gates were
twelve pearls: every several
gate was of one pearl:
and the street of the city
was pure gold, as it were

To Wonderful For Words ~

To wonderful for words,
to glorious to explain . . .
is what God has in store
for those in Him who remain.

No one has ever seen,
no eyes have been given
a glimpse into paradise
for those who are forgiven.

To wondrous for the heart,
to marvelous for the mind
the glory God will bring
to those no longer blind.

No ear has ever heard,
no listener has received
the tones of pure delight
from those no more deceived.

To wonderful for words,
to glorious to understand . . .
the blissful sights and sounds
awaiting those who withstand!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 2:9

But as it is written,
Eye hath not seen,

A Brighter Horizon ~

A brighter horizon,
is just up ahead . . .
one without turmoil
but with peace instead.

One that has views,
heavenly ~ blissful
one that awaits
all who are faithful.

A brighter landscape,
is just around the bend
one where all evil
will come to an end.

One so divine,
abundantly beautiful
one where tranquility
will be bountiful.

A brighter horizon,
a future, hopeful outlook
I envision every time . . .
I read the Good Book!

The City of No Mores ~

In the City of No Mores,
is where I long to be . . .
oh, how I can hardly wait
until Jesus returns for me.

On the street of No More Tears.
we’ll never again weep or cry
for there will only be bliss
as every eye will be dry.

On the road of No More Pain,
we’ll be complete and whole
for we’ll have a new body
and a new glorified soul.

Down the path of No More Sin,
we will leap, jump and run
for our battle against satan
will be finally won.

On the way of No More Death,
there’ll be a jubilant parade
for from the devil evil-doings
we’ll never again be afraid.

In the City of No Mores,
is where we’ll spend eternity
and dwell in the mansion . . .
of No More Agony!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow,
nor crying,

neither shall there be

for the former things
are passed away.”

I Long To Dwell ~

I long to dwell,
in eternal peace . . .
where fear and death
will forever cease.

Where things are seen,
through tearless eyes
where joyous shouts
are the only cries.

I long to dwell
on the other side
where with God . . .
His saints will reside.

Where sorrow stops,
as mourning ends
to spend eternity
with my forever Friend.

I long to dwell,
far from this place
where tears no longer
stream down our face!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall
be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain: for the former
things are passed away.

Laying My Treasures ~

My heart doesn’t lay,
it’s treasures on earth
for it knows one day
they’ll hold no worth.

Instead my heart places,
in God its daily trust
for I know His love for me
will never corrode or rust.

My heart doesn’t invest,
into worldly assets
for they are void of peace
riddled down with regrets.

Instead my heart’s devoted,
to the Life, Truth and Way
for I know my faith in Jesus
will not corrupt or decay.

My heart up in heaven,
lays all it holds dear . . .
for to put it here on earth
makes me shudder with fear!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

When We Get To Heaven ~

When we get to heaven,
there will be only rest
no longer will we need
to go through trials and tests.

For we will be refined,
from silver into gold
God’s magnificent glory
we will forever behold.

When we get to heaven,
there’ll be no more laboring
from all of our weariness
we’ll no longer be suffering.

For we will be at peace,
in the midst of God’s light
as we are flooded in
the beauty of His sight.

When we get to heaven,
there will be only bliss
and the life we have now
we will never, ever miss!

Walking In That Valley ~

When I walk in that valley,
I’m not walking it alone
for Jesus will be with me
before He takes me home.

There will nothing to doubt,
not a shedding of a tear
for Jesus will be with me
to calm my every fear.

When into that valley,
I have to travel through
the only thing I’m keeping
will be heaven in my view.

No evil will be lurking,
in the shadows for me
for Jesus like a Shepherd
in front of me, will be.

When I go to that valley,
I’ll not walk it alone
for Jesus will see me
to my eternal home!

~~~~~~~~~

Yea, though I walk through the valley

The Face of God ~

The face of God,
I cannot see . . .
but it doesn’t deter
or discourage me.

For I still seek,
God and His face
each time I ask Him
for more of His grace.

The face of God,
is a mystery
but I can still feel
its trajectory.

He tracks His eyes,
to look after me
He steers His ears
to my every plea.

The face of God,
I can’t begin to picture
but, I know I’ll see it
in the near future!

~~~~~~~~

is to know your future

Oh, to know all things,
for good will work out
is to know your future
holds no fear or doubt.

To discover the Way,
is the Truth and the Life
is to know your future
brings no eternal strife.

Oh, to know your destiny,
your future welfare
is to come to know Jesus . . .
will be with you there!
