Eternity Begins Now - Poem by Owen Johnston

The Holy Spirit
Whose grace knows no bounds
Gives freely to
Any heart that
Believes
And
Loves
Him
And
His
Only Begotten Son
Whom He gave to us
That we might be saved.

The wisdom of the spirit gives
True sight
To the closed eye of the mind,
True hearing
To the deaf ear of the heart.

God even gives to us
Wonderful new dreams
To live out,
Life in abundance -
Such a joy it is
To work for the Lord!

Yet there will always be
Struggles
While we are
In this world -
We must remember that
God has put us here
To lead us every day into
A New Lesson,
A New Creation,
A New Heaven on Earth,
As any good father would.

It is the example of Christ
We should always strive for -
God has called us to be
Spiritual warriors
Who will dedicate their lives
To what is right,
According to God's will,
And against all odds.

Let us daily rejoice in God's great plan.
Let us rely on God's strength.
Let us play our part on
The stage of life,
The book of destiny,
The River of the Soul,
That we might have life more abundantly,
A Heaven on Earth,
Eternal bliss hereafter!

Let us continue to
Believe and dream,
For our adventures have
Only just begun!

Eternity Begins Now!
