eternal.


remove the blinders from your eyes and see
that God has given you a dream for the generations to be.
this world thinks "it's all about me"
but we are called to live a life selflessly.

so grab hold of the dream that He's given you.
He's given you everything you need, to make the dream come true.
remember that it's not about you so don't give up.

if you think only about yourself, you will get stuck.

it's of utmost importance that you run your race.
you must pass the baton, as time we chase
before you meet your Master face to face.
before you are called home to our eternal place.

so while you have time, build a legacy that's strong.
make sure to run that distance, even it's tiring and long.
run your course till He calls you where you rightfully belong.
in Heaven where all nations will gather along.
to worship and adore Him with worship and song.

think generationally.

think legacy.
think eternally.

"if you read history you will find that the christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this." - c.s. lewis

All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth. Obviously people who say such things are looking forward to a country they can call their own. If they had longed for the country they came from, they could have gone back. But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
