Where Will You Be in Eternity?

Where Will You Be In Eternity?


As certain as a spark flies

upward toward the sky.

Your life goes by fast, 

till the day you die.


That moment when you'll

take your last breath.

This will be your final day.

 We call this death.


Your possessions, you won't

 be able to take.

Do you really think of

 what's really at stake?


Your eternal soul will

be in heaven or hell.

Perhaps this fact doesn't

"sit with you very well."


You need to make sure a relationship

 with Christ is certain.

Before death comes calling you

 for life's "final curtain."


"What profits a man if he

gains the world, 

but loses his soul?"

Heaven or hell...  Which place

do you choose to go???

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
