Forever, a measure of time


What is forever

how can we understand

a measure of time

with little to grasp,

we need a hand.

Oh yes God we take our pills

attempt to live

as a 'mighty man'

yet in the end

it comes crashing down,

show me forever.

We peer with telescopes

suspended in space,

look outward at the edge

of infinity

into the vast emptiness

of the heavens

as if searching for God

oh the infinate time of your grace,

then we still do not

understand forever

though it stares at us

in the face.

You said that doing your will

relates to living forever

thats a hard thing to imagine

no never no never

every day when I

look into a mirror.,

FOREVER...IN OUR CELESTIAL HOME...THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS SIGNED OUR 'GUARANTEE'...WE WILL LIVE FOREVER WITH THE LORD WHEN OUR BODIES ARE SURRENDERED TO DUST AND OUR SPIRITS ARE FREE AND SAFE IN HIS ARMS...THIS 'FOREVER' IS WHAT WE AS BELIEVERS ARE STANDING FOR...ARE FIGHTING FOR...WILL NEVER SURRENDER TO THIS WORLD FOR...OUR 'ETERNAL' HOMES. THANK YOU JOHN...FOR PROVOKING ME TO SPEAK TO YOUR VOICE...BUT I HAVE A FEELING THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS. THANKS FOR SHARING, GOD BLESS AND MUCH LOVE,
JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
