Just imagine what it is going to be like when we finally meet Jesus. Imagine all of the questions that will come flooding into your mind when you look upon His face.
I can visualize that day. I can picture Jesus standing in front of me, with open arms, just waiting to hold me, and comfort me. I can also see Jesus with a book in His hands detailing my time spent here on Earth. Everything I have ever spoken, or done will be right there in the palm of His hand. I know what is written among some of the many pages will not be pleasing to Him, as I am human, and not without sin, but I am hoping that for the most part, what is contained in my “Book of Day’s” will be more pleasing than not.
Are you concerned about what this “Book of Life” holds for you? Do you even ever think about that question? You can turn what is contained on those pages around if you just look to Jesus, and follow him from this day forward. He is ready, and waiting for you to come to Him today. He loves you that much, and will wait for you as long as it takes. He is a patient God.
Even though this is not from my original writings, I can relate heaps to what words are contained within it.
I have gained permission from this wonderful writer to use this in my book. It needs nothing added
to it, for this writing speaks to hearts in many ways just as it is written. I hope you gain insight from reading the following words. Let it penetrate your heart, and spirit. If you do not yet know Jesus Christ as your personal savior please say this prayer along with me. As he is just waiting with open arms for you to invite him into your life today. Thank you Pam Gallo for this most inspiring work.
I come humbly before you today to ask that you touch my life, and
Forgive me of all my past mistakes, and sin. I know you died on the
Cross, and shed your blood for my sins, and I am ready to accept you
Into my life as my personal savior. I want to spend eternity with you.
Please come in, and give me rest, peace, and comfort.
In Jesus name I pray
Now you are on your way to a richly blessed life with Jesus Christ as your guide. Please get into a good Christian church and read God holy word daily so your newfound faith in him will grow, and be strengthened. May God richly bless you, and keep you in his care.
Book of Days
AS I CLIMBED THE ENDLESS STAIRWAY
REACHING TOWARD THE RADIANT LIGHT
THE JOURNEY SEEMED SO ENDLESS.
YET I KNEW SOON I WOULD ARRIVE HOME
HOME WAS WITHIN SIGHT
FATHER I HAVE MISSED YOU
HOW I LONGED TO FEEL YOUR TOUCH
NOW AS YOU HOLD THIS BROKEN AND LOST CHILD,
PLEASE KNOW I HAVE MISSED YOU, OH SO MUCH
I MADE SO MANY MISTAKES LORD. AS I TRAVELED THROUGH MY LIFE
SO IF YOU WOULD SIT DOWN WITH ME AND LISTEN FATHER
MAYBE YOU COULD HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND
AND FINALLY PUT THINGS RIGHT
LORD, AND THEN YOU GENTLY SAT ME DOWN,
AND TOOK OUT AN OLD AND TATTERED BOOK
EXPLAINING IT WAS THE BOOK OF DAYS,
OF MY TIME SPENT ON THE EARTH
SO MANY THINGS I DID NOT UNDERSTAND, I WAS BECOMING MORE CONFUSED
TEARS STARTED TO FALL FROM MY EYES THAT'S WHEN YOU SMILED AT ME
LET ME HELP YOU MY CHILD, AND SOON I PROMISE YOU SHALL SEE
THAT WHEN THIS TIME IS OVER "MY" TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
IT WAS THEN MY EYES BEHELD A SIGHT
AS I LOOKED AT OUR LORDS FACE
I SAW THE THORNS UPON HIS HEAD
VISIONS OF PAIN UPON HIS FACE
IT MATTERS NOT YOU THINK YOU'VE FAILED,
AND LIVED A LIFE WITHOUT MONEY OR FAME
IT MATTERS NOT THE BEAUTY THAT ONCE ADORNED YOUR FACE
THE OUTER BEAUTY YOU COULD NOT TAKE TO YOUR GRAVE
IT MATTERS NOT THE HOUSE IN WHICH YOU LIVED
THAT WAS FILLED WITH POVERTY
THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS MOST
IS THAT YOU WELCOMED ME
YOUR BEAUTY SHINES FROM DEEP WITHIN
THE PLACE I CALL YOUR SOUL
IT LIGHTS THE WAY FOR MANY
PLANTING SEEDS OF THOUGHT SO I WOULD GROW
NOW IN THIS BOOK OF DAYS YOU WILL SEE ON EVERY TATTERED PAGE
THE NAMES OF ALL THE LIVES YOU TOUCHED, OF ALL THE HEARTS YOU'VE CHANGED
THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT YOU DID NOT UNDERSTAND
BUT YET YOU STILL OBEYED, AND YOU LOVED ME UNCONDITIONALLY,
EVEN WHEN YOU WERE AFRAID
SO WORRY NOT MY CHILD
FIND COMFORT HERE WITH ME
YOU DID EVERYTHING I HAD WANTED
WHEN YOU ALWAYS LOOKED TO ME
I CARRIED YOU WHEN YOU WERE WEARY
LAUGHED WHEN YOU BROUGHT MY HEART JOY
I LIFTED YOU WHEN YOU FELL,
AND THROUGH EVERY TEAR THAT YOU HAVE CRIED
THAT'S WHEN YOU CAME TO KNOW ME WELL
YES, EVERYTHING HAS ITS PURPOSE,
EVERY JOY WILL CARRIES ITS PAIN.
YOU MUST KNOW PAIN, AND LONELINESS,
AND BELIEVE THAT NO SUFFERING IS EVER IN VAIN.
