If We Could See The Future

If We Could See The Future

I've just been thinking a lot about Heaven,

And of what a Glorious Place it will be.

No more heartaches and no more pain,

There are beloved ones to welcome me.

Many loved ones I'll leave here on earth

But Glory of Heaven will over shadow all.

I'll have to leave them to their destination

And leave everything when I hear Jesus call.

If I failed in what I have tried to endeavor

If all of my words have only been in vain.

The Lord knows my heart has been in it

For I have written it over and over again.

If we were born with a map of knowledge

Embedded in our brain and into our heart.

If we had never hurt or disobeyed The Lord.

If we had been perfect from the very start.

But then we would never have a free will,

God did not plan for us to be that way .

So it will be with ones we have left here.

They will discard His Word or gladly obey.

If you have repented of things in your past,

And He has told you to go and sin no more.

If you obeyed, done all He told you to do,

When He calls your name to Heaven you soar..

When friends and loved ones all gather round

To wish you a final and a .tearful goodbye.

Will they repent and ask God's forgiveness

As in your casket now you so peaceful lie?

If we had been born to see into the future

And we knew all that would come our way.

Could we say without any fear of erring ,

That we 'd all be Godly Christians today ?



******************************************


If only we had a camera that was strong

enough to bring a picture of Heaven to you

,how many people would refuse Salvation?

I would think everyone would want to

go there when they saw it really was true.

.Many men have tried to destroy the

story of Christ not believing that it was

t rue .The wise men of today are not

like those wise men of old who came to

worship the new born King.The wise men

of today with all of their degrees are lost

and stumbling around in the darkness.

They need The Lord but they are too

smart to believe in Him. Someday they

will believe in Him but it may be too late

for them and for those they taught a

false religion to . What a day that will be

when they awaken to the truth!!

Thank you Clara..I love the part about 'Free will'...a program that I belong to taught me that "any life run on free will can hardly be a success.

Thank you for your comment.If God had not given us a free will to choose right from wrong people would probably say He is a dictator , but He gave us the knowledge to know what is right but He also gave us the wisdom to choose as

we want to ,He will not force us to His values,He will leave that up to us.Just pray that people will make the right choice in their lives.

Thank you ,Chelsea , for your comments. I try to write what I feel, I know everyone will not always agree with me but that is their right.A big part of my poems have been written in the night,God will wake me up with things going in my head and I have to get up and write them down,if I wait till morning I have no idea what it was all about so I have learned to get up and start writing if I don't want to lose the message,I have lost quite a bit of sleep over the years this way , thank you , Clara

Hi Clara ~

I was thinking about you tonight, I have just written a Hub called Touched His Feet and Shuffled. I remembered your sweet smile and your poems and came to read this one. I just was in the hospital and having a bit of a time of it but very faithful. Just want you to know I found this poem very true and uplifting as are you sweet lady.

Hi Rasta,Thank you for your comment.No , I can't see into the future , I just have God's Word to go by and the fact that He will wake me up in the middle of the night sometimes with words for a poem , If I don't get up then and do it by morning I can not even think what it was about.I have found out over the years to write what God gives me .He does not give me a whole poem just words to get started on ,my job is to take it from there.It is good to know there are people yet who enjoy these poems. Thank you so much. Clara

Very interesting. A really nice job. If I were ever perfect, I think it would have been from the VERY START when I was not accountable at birth for my sins. Something deep to think about. I like that map concept too. I sure could use that. Love, Tessie

Hi Tessie,good to hear from you . Glad that you liked it. I haven't been on here much lately. I can't seem to keep this running long enough to keep these on here.It wipes many of the things off of here. Thank you for the birthday card and gift that you sent . I appreciated it very much. Wayne and Charlotte tried to send me something on here and neither one would come through. I'll try again to day to see if I can get it .I hope your family is all right now , Love you try to talk to you later bye now.Cherry
