2-7-15 Thrive

cosmic hourglass

Although the world around you is a mess

And everyone agrees it won’t last long

Before it all collapses in distress,

Because you are a child of God stand strong.

You live by faith so ready for the day

When you shall see the Lord in glory shown,

That even though the world will fall away

You praise the name of Jesus on His throne!

The body you inhabit soon must die,

Just like the universe so vast and grand,

But there is more to you than meets the eye

For you belong to He who will withstand.

Conduct yourself as one who will survive;

Beyond the mortal realm your soul shall thrive.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,

what manner of persons ought ye to be

in all holy conversation and godliness

2 Peter 3:11 KJV

8-7-14 The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

comet moon night sky

The wide night sky is blanketed in stars,

And in its midst the moon is full and bright;

Cicadas play a concert from afar

While fireflies much closer flash their lights.

The summer air is thick, the grass is warm

As I lie here to rest my weary bones,

And all of God’s creations in their forms

Proclaim with one accord His name be known.

I gaze upon His wondrous work and sigh

And feel so very small here on the ground,

But then a comet streaks across the sky

And fills my heart with love without a sound.

The heavens shout the majesty of God;

His handiwork so vast it leaves me awed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The heavens declare the glory of God,

and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.

Psalm 19:1 ESV
