Heaven Planned

Heaven Planned

 

God made the end before the start

Before earth’s time began

Before life’s blood flowed through a heart

Or breath was breathed in man

 

Who can improve what God has made?

Formed by Jehovah’s hand

Who can His great design invade?

Or change what Heaven’s planned

 

Who can imagine God’s intent?

Surmise one’s future dawn

When not a moment time they’ve spent

Before the world’s first morn

 

Alone! I Am was always here

In truth was always there

Inside outside forward and rear

Always and everywhere

 

So only God such things can see

The Lord who formed the past

The things that ought or not to be

The endless things to last

 

Obvious to God the future’s clear

Both sides of life’s divide

Why should we walk and live in fear

With Heaven’s Guide inside

 

Yet some would look through Heaven’s eyes

What Jesus had to say?

The future truths of paradise

Results of judgement day

 

But we who walk death’s shadowed vale

With Jesus hand in hand

We’ll trust God’s Son never to fail

And live as Heaven planned.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
