A sign of God’s presence

What will you do when you die?
How will you approach God?
In your entire life
You have never proven to be a friend
Now that you lie lifeless, what is your opinion of Him?
Though, you have had friends and amazing people,
who have experienced and appreciated you.
They will not wait to speak in favour of you and
give a friendly illustration of you to God.
Would that be enough to prove your identity before God?
You still have time to rethink
Before you embark on the endless journey back home.

Your only option is to love
It is the footprint of life
Love is a sign of God’s presence
ever ready to welcome you back
in the banquet of eternal joy
Where you will suffer no sorrow or pain
Love can never rest
It is peace dwelling in all hearts
It is not stingy
It propagates itself by sharing
Love changes all things

  1. I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
