That God has in store for all man.
You’ve only seen part;
It’s all just a start.
God has a design that is grand.
Our eyes are not fully unveiled.
We can’t see past where we have failed.
Yet when that day comes,
When it’s all said and done,
Removed from our eyes are the scales.
God wants our eyes opened in time,
So we can see His grand Design;
And then fully grasp
All that we have passed
The picture that God has in mind.
-- C.V., girl, age 14

Author's note: The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. Also see "Entering the Kingdom of God." I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master." The fingerprint photo is from "Wikimedia Commons." Now I'd like to ask a very important question.
Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
