Better Be Ready

Understanding eternity
Is something like the trinity.
Some things we take by faith alone
Until the time God makes it known.
Something we canít comprehend,
There is no beginning or end,
To the existence of our God.
In His presence we are awed.
We all will live eternally,
Heaven or hell the place will be.
So very much our God did love
He sent His Son down from above.
To die for sinners, such as we
How can such grace and mercy be?
Believing on Jesus, Godís Son,
Is how a place in heavenís won.
Everything we think say or do
Keep eternityís values in view.
The best choice we can ever do
Is be ready when we get our cue.
When Jesus comes it will be too late.
We will have already sealed our fate.
The best thing about eternity
Is that is where our Lord will be.
We donít know when our time will be
Are you ready Godís face to see?

Excellent wake up call to all who read your poem.

thank you i like the title and you have added thought provoking content to the poem. As there is such alot of thought provoking refelction in this i wonder if it would have worked even better if you had added a space between every 2 lines to allow the reader to naturally pause in the reading.

This is a lovely poem with many great points. Try breaking it up into verses so that there is more white space and is easier on the eyes. Well-done, lovely piece
