God's plan for me - 'my life' book with two large white birds in the clouds.

The Visit

          God paid me a visit today,
          He brought peace and contentment too;
          He said, "If you want to feel whole,
          Here is all that you have to do.

          "Eternity awaits my fold,
          My prophets drew a map for you;
          Simple directions you can take,
          Heaven is easy to get to.

          "Help all find my beloved Son,
          He has with Him my Book of Life;
          If their name's already in it,
          They'll be freed from worry and strife.

          "Get that old Bible off your shelf,
          And wipe all that dust off of it;
          You'll find the trail well marked in there,
          The way is easy and so well lit.

          "The life you are living right now,
          I'd intended to last through time;
          But your ancestors blew the deal,
          They thought their plan better than mine.

          Now you, my child, have found the truth,
          You did things your way for so long;
          You have suffered through some hard times,
          Only through faith have you stayed strong.

          "So here is what you are to do,
          Pass the word of the peace you've found;
          So many on earth remain lost,
          Far too many are hellward bound.

          "I'll give you the words to write down,
          Simply spread the truth about me;
          Tell them how Jesus saved your soul,
          Tell them of my Eternity."

          Then just like that, God left my side,
          But He left peace and contentment;
          Now I must write a verse or two,
          Of the message that He just sent.

          Today my soul is more refreshed,
          Now I am walking a new trail;
          The trail that God has placed me on,
          To tell of His Word that won't fail.
