Our Time On Earth & Light Of The World

Our time on Earth is full, dangerous, and demanding
Truth is it's just a brief period of our existence.
Someday we'll face God much sooner than we realize
And have to answer to our stupidity and r

We have relationships, responsibilities, dreams, and goals
Desires we long to see fulfilled and come true.
Our fear, guilt, faith, love, joy and conviction
Are judged by everything we say and do.

As we step beyond the threshold of this world
We enjoy the fullness of God's Kingdom above.
Think about the glorious future that waits
For all who trust Him for forgiveness, salvation, and love.


Jesus told His disciples they were the 'Light of the World'
When light enters a room it drives darkness away.
Allowing those inside to see more clearly
Our Lord's desire His people follow not stray.

When Jesus commissioned us to become disciples
He told us to teach others to observe His demands.
Millions of people know nothing of Jesus or God
Or the outcome of all those who ignore His commands.

It's up to the faithful to broadcast His truth
By our actions, forgiveness, and sensitivity of voice.
We cannot stop sharing His message of love
For a world without faith destroys confidence and choice.


If you're unsure of your eternal destiny
The first investment you must make involves your soul.
God created you to live forever
And to spend eternity with Him is His goal.

Have you trusted Christ to bridge the gap
Between you and God's grace from above?
Have you prayed to Heaven for the answers of life
And do you comply with His commandments with love?


When I knew the Lord was calling me to preach
I didn't worry about the details just His choice.
Every day on the web posting hundreds of poems
Or sharing Heavens verses by voice.

Only God can equip us to serve and disciple
To spread His everlasting promise to the lost.
We must always comply with complete heart and soul
Or suffer the shame of disobedience and its cost.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
