The Meaning of Life

 The reason that I live,
The reason I have life,
And my whole heart I give:
It’s all because of Christ.

One’s life holds much more meaning
Than time just passing by.
It’s more than you are seeing,
To just be born, then die.

For Jesus said He’s Life,
And life He gave to you.
He is Love and Light.
In Him we live brand new.

Life continues on,
Even after death.
Will you join heaven’s throng
At your final breath?

We find reality
In Christ, our gracious Lord;
For He who makes things be
 Can cut the Golden Cord.

Our time while here on earth,
Each moment of each day,
Is of such priceless worth,
Yet we give it all away

To Him who’s worth our lives,
Because He gave His own.
You’re blessed if you should die
For serving God alone.

This life is not in vain,
Some long and puzzling story.
For we were sent and came
To serve for Jesus’ glory!

-- C.V., girl, age 14


More of our children's poems:

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.  The painting "All God's Children" © 2012 is by Danny Hahlbohm, all rights reserved by the artist.  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."  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?"
