Do you ever stop and wonder
About the real purpose of life?
Do you think that work is the answer,
Complete with the struggles and strife?
Or perhaps you define life's purpose
In terms of material gain.
The treasures we gather are lovely,
But they do not keep us from pain.
Could fame be the ultimate purpose?
It's uplifting to hear the applause.
But when we're alone at the end of the day,
We sadly reflect as we pause.
Will wealth bring us real satisfaction?
Is that the purpose we seek?
But money will not provide solace
Or give us strength when we're weak.
Position, money, possessions and fame
Will vanish in the blink of an eye.
They are not worth the effort or price
And will be lost on the day that we die.
There is only one reason for us to be here,
One goal we need to reach.
We were born to be God's children
And share His Word and teach.
God wants us to find contentment and peace
And enjoy our time here on Earth,
But first we need to focus on Him
And seek our own re-birth.
This life is just part of our journey.
God has much more planned for us
And His is the only lifetime goal
That we should come to trust.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
