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.
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.
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.
