‘It’s not always easy on the shores of life.
Sometimes it seems it’s full of strife.
You wander around searching for life’s treasures,
Except nothing you pick up brings you pleasure.
But those sands that keep making your spirit feel rough with sadness, are going to be conquered by the waves of gladness,
Because when the tide comes in and washes away your tears,
It’s going to bring in things you’ll cherish for years.
So, when your shores start to seem bare and empty,
Just remember your life won’t always be sandy.
For when the tide comes in you’ll feel great pleasure,
When the tide comes in you’ll get your treasure.’
2 Tim 4:8
“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
2 Cor. 4:18
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
1 Thess. 4:16-18
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
