Faith Has a Future
Faith has a future.
There is no reason to look back.
We have to pass through this world,
Where there is misery and lack.
We have a burning desire to have it all,
And not wait until tomorrow.
We need release right now,
From our misery and sorrow.
This life is so confusing,
With it’s good days and bad.
We want to rejoice in His grace,
And to overcome all that is sad.
If we just look back to see,
How we have overcome the past,
We can look toward the future,
With Jesus, that will always last.
We need to have faith for our future,
A time beyond the tears.
We know the source of our peace,
And He will take away our fears.
We need not walk in fear.
Fear and faith can’t live together.
Hold onto the future,
So that one does not erase the other.
We need to wait upon the Lord.
He is the truth and the way.
With Him to manage our lives,
Faith won’t let fear stay.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
We have comfort in the knowledge that we were not made to just be in this world. We have a bright future in heaven, if we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We just have to put one foot in front of the other. We need to walk right into our future with faith. We need to comfort ourselves and others with these words. This place where we are today is not going to last, so look to the future with faith.
