Eternal Paradise

 Inch by inch everything
 Is a cinch because 
 Of confidence in God
 And what He does
 
 
 Trust in the plan
 Live out your passion
 Step ahead daily
 Expect good to happen
 
 
 Patiently fulfilling
 Your purpose on earth 
 Knowing that God 
 Has given new birth 
 
 
 Even if negatives 
 Bubble up in life
 Look forward to a place
 Where there is no strife
 
 
 Be optimistic
 Since Christ paid the price
 For you have a future
 In eternal paradise

Inspired by “Eternal Paradise

Photo – The photo was taken while traveling up Mt. Haleakala on the Hawaiian island of Maui. It’s dormant now but when active, the lava-flow formed about 75 percent of the island. In fact, all the Hawaiian island were formed from volcanos. Today, these islands are a tropical paradise and the destination of millions who travel there on vacations each year.
