Sixty-four Years

 

Psalm 91:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

 

Now I could complain and tell you
That life is full of woe
But that wouldn’t give you much hope
On this crowed road as you go…
Heartache and suffering is part of the trip
But there’s no need to worry, let me give you a tip…
If you’re trying to walk alone, carrying a heavy load
Listen, there’s a way to help you, on this long, winding, road
Jesus said,
Take my yoke upon you, and rest your weary head.
Yes, sixty-four years is quite some time, some stay longer and some go sooner…
We don’t know why…
There’s no dead-end, for the road ahead, take it by faith help others and spread
His love, on your journey to home…
Life doesn’t end; it truly begins; when the body dies but until then…
Keep your eyes focused on Him…
So in the realm of eternity…
Sixty-four years, why, you’re just a kid
Keep on plugging along
Do not grow weary, do not give up…when you get tired; just sing a happy song…
Remembering there’s so much more to do…
Things have a way of working out…don’t get bitter, and do not doubt.
Shuffling feet and no more teeth, hair falling out and bones that creak…
Food has lost its flavor and body is weak…
Mind forgetful and people don’t speak…
Heart pounding and skips a beat…
Lotions and pills, doctor visits, better make out your will
Getting old is not for wimps…
Why it’s just inconvenient is all
Eyes growing dim
But one thing I know…
He’ll renew your strength when your Joy’s in Him
I never knew it would be like this…
Keep praising God and you will see…
It’s not the flesh who’ll see Jesus the King…
But the Spirit; living inside of thee…
Youth renewed like the eagles…
Strong and bold and agile, is the spirit who has been made free…
Not born of the flesh, but born of God; these sixty-four years seems like only a flash…
No need to worry, but simply ask,
And God will meet you there!

The Soul Takes Flight Poetry by MS O’Neill
Psalm 90:14-17 The Message (MSG) Oh! Teach us to live well! Teach us to live wisely and well! Come back, God—how long do we have to wait?— and treat your servants with kindness for a change. Surprise us with love at daybreak; then we’ll skip and dance all the day long. Make up for the bad times with some good times; we’ve seen enough evil to last a lifetime. Let your servants see what you’re best at— the ways you rule and bless your children. And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us, confirming the work that we do. Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
