“As It Was Meant To Be”

“As It Was Meant To Be”

This is our prayer to You for each day
To set our hearts upon eternal things
You are sovereign; You are in control
Of whatever tomorrow to us brings

This life is but a wisp; a mere vapor
Treasures stored up on earth will pass
Each breath and heartbeat is Your gift
Only works done for Your glory will last

A brilliantly wonderful future we have
Perfect, Heavenly harmony of life anew
Joy unspeakable; as it was meant to be
And forever we will be worshipping You

II Corinthians 4:18 (NASB)
while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

“How Beautiful It Will Be”

“How Beautiful It Will Be”

Moments tick by, and the anticipation grows
When Jesus will return, only the Father knows
God’s Children await the arrival of their King
Joy stirs within as praises to Him they bring

They read His Word and pray for those lost
Mindful that Jesus paid for them a heavy cost
How unfathomable are the riches of His grace
How beautiful it will be for them to see His face

Heaven’s joy will be for them to dwell with Him
To know as they are fully known; to be rid of sin
Hope they find not in this tent of flesh and bone
Only in their Savior; through Jesus Christ alone

Titus 2:13 (NASB) looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus

“Foretaste of Glory”

Watching and waiting; poised and ready
Many storms arise; God holds us steady
Mortal ills; confusion and chaos abound
He is our Delight; in Him our joy is found

Truth anchors us; a beaming beacon of light
Our hope for the day; our peace in the night
When we praise Him, our faith is expressed
Fears are quieted as the heart enters His rest

In study of His Word, the Spirit gives insight
Wisdom for living and for doing what is right
Fellowship is ours with the Father and His Son
Foretaste of glory; glimpse of eternity to come

1 John 1:1-4 (NASB)
1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life—
2 and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—
3 what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.
4 These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.

“Heavenly Things Above”

“Heavenly Things Above”

Looking forward toward the future
Leaving behind what’s gone before
Seeing your life through God’s eyes
Getting to know and love Him more

Gaining insight from mistakes made
Thinking upon His Word every day
Growing in wisdom and knowledge
Jesus the Only Truth, Life, and Way

Glorifying Him in deeds and speech
Submitting and obeying Him in love
Praying, listening to the Spirit teach
Focusing on Heavenly things above

Colossians 3:1-3 (NASB)
1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Philippians 3:13-14 (NASB)
13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

“An Eye To The Sky”

“An Eye To The Sky”

A moment of trial; then the joy and glory of eternity
A darkened mirror; then the dawning of a new reality
Awfulness of sin; then its ugliness banished from sight
A decaying, mortal coil; perfected in incorruptible light

An earthly mind ; then a clear mind without limitation
A faith hoped for; then with Jesus, Author of Salvation
A weak, frail vessel; then no physical impediments at all
An eye to the sky; then Heaven-bound at trumpet’s call

I Peter 5:10 (NASB) After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.

“All He Wants Us To Know”

“All He Wants Us To Know”

Our eyes will gaze upon Jesus
From this world, we will depart
We discern this in our spirits
Hold His promise in our hearts
No longer will we be strangers
Aliens in a hostile, foreign land
Our Heavenly Home is calling
Prepared by His own Hand
It is beyond imagination
What our Lord has planned
For we who love Him so
But He has provided us
Through His Holy Word
All He wants us to know

I Corinthians 2:9-10 (NASB)
but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”
For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

“Jesus, Heaven’s Bliss”

“Jesus, Heaven’s Bliss”

My life isn’t my own
Lord, it’s Yours alone
Time and years fly by
I’m looking to the sky

Thinking of my Home
While on earth I roam
Wanderer in this place
Saved by Your grace

Fish out of water here
Yet, You are very near
My heart calls to You
Testifies to your Truth

On my knees I’ll pray
Praise you for today
Joy in knowing this
Jesus, Heaven’s bliss

Revelation 22:20 (NASB)
He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

“Prepare For Eternity”

“Prepare For Eternity”

Don’t grasp on too tightly to this world
For its lure and ambition will soon pass
We live this life to prepare for eternity
A Heavenly Kingdom designed to last

To be like Christ; to see Him as He is
Is a future reality words can’t express
To have this mortal put on immortality
Is to be perfected in His righteousness

To be able to worship in full expression
Is a freedom such as we’ve never known
To praise Him; to dwell in His presence
Is the joy of forevermore at His Throne

Dee Minney I John 3:2-3 (NASB)
2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.
3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure

Psalms 145:13 (NASB)
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
