      I humbly (and hopefully not irrelevantly) reach out to those who are enduring hardships in this earthly life.  It is no easy thing to be hungry without money to buy food, to be cold without the luxury of four walls to keep you warm, to be in need of love and reassurance with no caring person to be found, or to become befuddled in life with no answers on the horizon.  My heart goes out to everybody out there that has suffered, or is currently suffering these maladies because I have experienced all this in my own life. Sometimes, or even oftentimes, this life is so depressing with little hope for circumstances to change anytime soon.   For all you who have pressing burdens upon your heart, mind, and soul, I write this for you:

       

      For Those Who Are Suffering

      The wind is in your face,

      But don’t dare move your head,

      You must keep your eyes looking skyward,

      Believing in the promises you have read.

       

      You were not put on this earth to be successful,

      God’s Word is your hidden treasure,

      You have simply been asked to be faithful,

      In order to receive riches beyond measure.

       

      Although your heart may be heavy-laden,

      And your soul is starting to tire,

      You know that Jesus is there beside you,

      As you experience trial after trial by fire.

       

      So don’t loose your Eternal focus,

      As the tempest beats against your face,

      Let the Spirit within strengthen you,

      So as to vigorously finish the race!

       

      Jesus is your Blessed Hope,

      Don’t lose sight of this eternal fact,

      He will reward you one-thousand fold in Heaven,

      For any earthly possession you have lacked.

       

      Have faith in God’s inerrant Word,

      This temporal life will soon end,

      Jesus is your Savior,

      And your never-ending friend.

       

      Stay calm, stay focused,

      Stay vigilant in belief,

      The skies will surely be parting soon,

      With Jesus bringing your eternal relief.

       

      God bless you my friends!

      Humbly

      Needed to hear that. Not that I am suffering due to hunger or poverty. At least in a physical sense. I have been very blessed in my life from that aspect.

      Just hearing that God’s Word is our true treasure. He really is. :)

      Indeed suffering, exploitation and evil abounds!  But only for a short season!

      These trials are indeed temporary, as like our flesh!

      Let us all continue by God’s grace and mercies and share the Good News, and our glorious fate into the Heavenlies!

      Our Father loves us, Christ is our Savior, and the Holy Spirit comforts and guides!

      May God’s delayed gratification soon be realized!  Either through death or Rapture, Heaven is ours!

      We who are saved through Jesus may still be on this earthen-ground, but we indeed are soon to be Rapture-bound!

      I can’t wait, but after all these years, I know that I have to wait.   Patience in the Lord is beyond my human patience, so I am resigned to waiting with patience on something I can’t wait for.

      I am a conundrum, wrapped in an enigma, surrounded by an anomaly that is truly a mystery.  Go figure!

      See ya’ll soon my friends!

      Soon and very soon,
      We are going to see the King,
      Soon and very soon,
      We are going to see the King.
      Soon and very soon,
      We are going to see the King,
      Hallelujah, hallelujah,
      We are going to see the King.

      No more crying there,
      We are going to see the King,
      No more crying there,
      We are going to see the King.
      No more crying there,
      We are going to see the King,
      Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
      We are going to see the King.

      No more dying there,
      We are going to see the King,
      No more dying there,
      We are going to see the King.
      No more dying there,
      We are going to see the King,
      Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
      We are going to see the King.

      Hallelujah.
      Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.

      Should there be any rivers we must cross,
      Should there be any mountains we must climb,
      God will supply all the strength that we need,
      Give us grace ’til we reach the other side.
      We have come from every nation,
      God knows each of us by name.
      Jesus took His blood and He washed our sins,
      And He washed them all away.
      Yes, there are some of us,
      Who have laid down our lives,
      But we all shall live again,
      On the other side.

      Hallelujah.
      Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.
      Hallelujah.
      Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.
      Hallelujah.
      Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
      Hallelu’
      Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah.

      Yes, thank you for the real words to the song!  I never really heard it sung before and my cyber friend only said the famous phrase “we are going to see the King”

      Sooo for the past 5 years I just made up my own “short” version as I’m holding my dog’s 2 front paws and we are walking around in a circle …

      We’re going to see the King, Yes, we’re going to see the King

      Hi-Ho the Derry-O … we are going to see the King of Kings. :whistle:

      Yet another one I catch myself singing more lately is: mostly the chorus!

      One of these days i’m gonna leave
      One of these days i’m going home.
      I’m gonna take my final journey
      I’m gonna rest “neath heaven’s blue dome.”

      Stepping on the clouds we’ll see jesus
      Rise to meet him in the air
      Stepping on the clouds he will greet us
      Oh the joy together we’ll share
      I’m gonna leave this world behind me
      Going where the devil cannot find me
      I’m going higher, higher, higher
      Stepping on the clouds

      Going past the moon the stars and the planets
      I’m gonna walk on the milky way.
      When old gabriel gives the signal
      I’m gonna leave for heaven to stay
      Stepping on the clouds we’ll see jesus
      Rise to meet him in the air
      Stepping on the clouds he will greet us
      Oh the joy together we’ll share
      I’m gonna leave this world behind me
      Going where the devil cannot find me
      I’m going higher, higher, higher

      Stepping on the clouds
      Stepping on the clouds we’ll see jesus
      Rise to meet him in the air
      Stepping on the clouds he will greet us
      Oh the joy together we’ll share
      I’m gonna leave this world behind me
      Going where the devil cannot find me
      I’m going higher, higher, higher

      Stepping on the clouds we’ll see jesus
      Rise to meet him in the air
      Stepping on the clouds he will greet us
      Oh the joy together we’ll share
      I’m gonna leave this world behind me
      Going where the devil cannot find me
      I’m going higher, higher, higher
      Stepping on the clouds
