Questions

As I reflect on another year of life, I find that I often have many more questions than answers. Tomorrow I reach the “double-nickle” mark, at least as far as years go, and I pray that my pursuit of God honors Him and in some way helps others.

Since I’m getting old now,
I should be in bed.
But questions abound,
at least in my head.
Will my life matter,
when I come to the end?
When Jesus looks at me,
will He call me His friend?

Did my life today,
measure up to His will?
Did I listen intently,
taking time to be still?
Was there ever a moment,
that I helped someone up?
And poured into their life,
what was placed in my cup?

Do I lift other’s spirits,
or bring them down low?
Is my life lived with substance,
or is it all show?
Is there a way,
to walk home with God?
With my mind fixed on heaven,
and my feet on this sod?

The questions are many,
the answers seem few.
So I’ll trust God with the unknown,
and share this with you!
