Living For The Other Side Of The Grave

I dream about my heavenly father


I dream about meeting him


And asking why he had to take my friend


Because now Brian isn’t here


And I struggle.


I want to ask why my best friend won’t accept him


Why she won’t commit to an eternal life


It is all so confusing,


This world.


To get my questions answered


I have to do His will.


He came to this earth


He took our sin away


And all he asks


Is that we continue his works


We recruit others to help as well.


He gives us this book


And says


Here are examples


Of people who have done my will


And now they are in my Kingdom


Resting among my other children


And you could be here too


I am giving you all the tools you need


To rest with me in my kingdom


So follow the rules


And I will see you later.


This is what missionaries do.


They are sharing His word with others


Giving hope to the hopeless


And expecting nothing in return.


They leave their families


Their loved ones


Their friends


Their dogs


Their neighbors


And they travel to another community


Another family


Other loved ones


Other friends


New neighbors


New dogs


And they do this


Because they die to their earthly self


And they are completely living


For the other side of the grave


This is what I dream of
