The Hope Beyond

~

When death comes, there is often no celebration,
only sadness and a sense of loss.
All too often, death leaves a feeling of hopelessness and finality.
~
Death is here
Sadness prevails
No smiles, only tears
When will the rain stop?
~
The end is here
This is too soon
No laughter, only gloom
When will the rain stop?
~
It’s over now,
What can I do
No hope, only doom
When will the rain stop?
~
If ones hope does not go beyond this life, there is no hope.

I have found hope in the scriptures.
I have found the words of John 3:16 to be an eternal comfort.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish,
but have everlasting life.”
