“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.

“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.

“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.

“Heavenly Minded”

“Heavenly Minded”

If we’re heavenly minded
This makes us earthly good
Minds fixed on God above
Living for Him as we should

Earth is our temporary dwelling
This Truth we know for sure
What we do for self fades away
What we do for Him will endure

This earthly life may get us down
We press on through another day
Struggle to handle it on our own
Yet all we had to do was pray

Faulty human reason tells us
It’s our job to give Him a hand
Our faith in Him appears small
This is sin we must understand

He is sovereign over all things
Confidence in Him is a must
Believe what He says He’ll do
He’s always worthy of our trust

Colossians 3:1-4 (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.
4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
