Our Days down Here Are Numbered

Updated on August 18, 2015

Our Days Down Here Are Numbered

Our Days down here are really numbered

If it be days or years,only the Lord knows,

Whatever time is left down here on earth

Will be spent with the Lord Jesus so close.


My prayers are to take all of my loved ones,

But I know that has to be their own choice.

They have their own God Given free will

To listen to the Heavenly Savior's Voice.


I thank The Lord,He's given long life to me,

Perhaps it is to see His loved ones come.

It may be one last chance to truly surrender

To make Heaven their Everlasting Home .


I know I do not really need to shout my prayer

For Jesus already knows what's in my heart.

I'm not a shouter,and He hears a whisper,

So together we each have an important part,


Would I ever go back?No,never to that place,

For that world holds nothing now for me.

No fame or fortune could ever entice me now,

Knowing now what Heaven truly would be.


I had never dreamed in early years of Heaven.

How could I dream of what I had never heard?

I knew much about the world's happenings,

But the story of Jesus,of the Bible,not a word.


Some saints took my name to Him in prayer,

They held me up unto I finally made it through.

This in not a fable, It's God's Own Holy Word.

And soon the whole world will really know it,too.

It is so hard believe that people will refuse to read the

BIBLE or listen to His Holy Word. If they read a story

in the newspaper or see it on the TV they will believe

every word of it and there is no was they will change

their mind. why then is it so hard to believe the BIBLE

and all of God's Truth that He has written to warn us

that will soon be coming, some of it has already arrived.

Still man closes his ears and his heart ,wake up,He will

Be here!!

      I do believe it will be soon Clara but I am ready whenever it is. I had surgery a few months ago and I went in with not one fear; I trusted God no matter if I lived or died and that is so different from how I was a few years back. I feared dying and no wonder; I had no assurance of my salvation but now I do!

      I know you have touched many Clara and may God bless you and keep you here until He comes!

      Beautiful poetry as always and we love you lady, so much!

      Voting up and sharing everywhere!

      Hello Sparkles, Thank you so much for your nice comment, I really needed that.There are times when I wonder if I am really doing much good on here.I know that God gives the poems to me so I just put them on and God will do the rest. Sometimes I wonder if I have really written much that will get to people's heart but I just have to leave it up to the LORD, He knows what needs to be said to help a needy heart. May God always be with you,.Clara

      It's lovely to look forward to eternity in Heaven, but we're here for a purpose and you fulfil that so well in reaching others with your poems. God bless you.

      Hi Clara Kish: You write so beautiful from your heart and you are correct that so many want nothing to do with the Bible. I listen to the Family Life Network every day on the car radio and that station has sustained me through numerous trials and uplifted me even more when God has shown me his Love, Grace and Mercy. What you share on Hub pages has blessed so many people, me too, and I believe God is using you for His purpose to encourage others to become close to Him. God bless you always. Sparklea :)

      Hello Michael, I am glad to meet you ,hope you will come back again.I have many more poems to put on if God gives me the time, this is all up to Him. So many times He wakes me in the middle of the night with words for a poem . If I don't get up and write it then by morning it is completely gone so I know I had better do it now because it will never come back.Thank you for your comment,I appreciate it .I will visit you soon, Clara

      So true, sister Clara Kish, our days are numbered down here, and when we live them fully according to His word, wouldn't be difference at what date we leave this temporary body, in spiritual bodies we will be with our Lord and Savior where He is.

      Voting up, and beautiful.

      May the Lord bless and protect you.
