This poem attacks our over investment in that which is temporary to the detriment of the eternal. If you haven’t done so, begin to make plans for eternity now by reconciling with your Maker, through His Son, Jesus. His blood shed on the cross of Calvary will wash away your sins and His word will continuously renew your mind while His Spirit will live in you to enable you live in line with His precepts as revealed in the Bible. Then when it’s time to leave this mortal plane, you won’t be scared or full of regrets. May you be richly blessed as you do this in Jesus’ name.


Scriptural references:
1 Corinthians 15:51-53 (KJV)
51. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

Daniel 12:2 (KJV)
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

John 3:16 (KJV)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  1. I am inspired by your words of wisdom and now knowledgeable about the word of God.I am so proud to call you my aunt; a wise , beautiful, african woman.

  2. The bible verse in Matthew 16: 26, “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” comes to mind.
    We all should ponder on that daily. Bless you for such a reminder.

  3. Great!

    Not only this, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, the redemption of our bodies.
    Rom 8:23

  4. a well spent life is life spent following christ not following worldly things. ma i admire you a lot .

    • Have Jesus, have life everlasting for indeed He is the way, the truth and the life.
      Thanks for this piece.

  5. Thanks a lot ma for the reminder. Some of us live our lives as if we are the owners our lives, we are not. After living here on earth we shall give an account to God on how a we spent our lives which will determine where we should spend our eternity. I pray to make heaven on the last day.

  6. My prayers everyday is to be with Jesus in his throne,To live with eternity in view is to suffer for His name’s sake. To live with eternity in view entails living our lives in accordance with the will of God, To live with eternity in view implies that we focus our minds on things above not on earthly wealth, To live with eternity in view is to think about heaven, talk about heaven, teach about heaven, preach about heaven and live to make heaven. God help me to make it. i want to be where you are.

  7. If your treasure is only based on this planet you are of all men most miserable because vanity is vanity. For a life without Christ is baseless

  8. Eternity is the priority. Sometimes, our minds dwell too much on the things of this world. May God help our souls. Truly, no one desires hell. But often times, we are too inclined to solving our immediate needs. May God keep us in his grace to never lose sight of ETERNITY.

  9. Eternity is our everlasting destination. Of what use is it if we gain everything down here and lose all up there. I don’t dream for that. I dream for heavenly eternity and not otherwise. A nice one.

  10. Eternity should always be our watchword. We should never be engrossed in the world as to loose sight of eternity.

  11. Eternity should always be in hearts so that we are conscious of how will live our lives here on Earth so as not to miss heaven.

  12. You are really a woman of good inspirations ,you help the young ones not to go astray, so we can be able to have eternal joy and happiness in God

  13. Eternity, something we should all seek to attain. When I remember that it doesn’t end here on earth and that there’s still a greater phase after the life we live as human beings, I get all jittery. I feel as if the clock is ticking and that any day could be my last. Then I say to myself “where would I be after all this?;where will I go? “. Everything becomes clearer after that. I realize that I need to hold God closer than ever and follow his word to the letter because I don’t want eternal condemnation, don’t want to spend the rest of eternity in a place of suffering and pain. I want eternal life and I know I have to live right to get it. Thank you so much for this post aunty. It puts the important things in perspective

  14. This is a poem that need us to search our lives, see if really we are living our lives with eternity in view. Most people take time to decorate and Polish the outer bother and leave the inner soul malnourished forgetting the fact that it is the inner soul that will stand for us. “Eternity in view “, we should ask ourselves this question, “are my living my life with eternity in view”?

  15. Vanity upon vanity… What will it profit a man if he gains the world but looses his soul.
    A high number of people are only concerned about their worldly possessions and bluntly neglect their dying soul, I pray that God gives us the grace to continue this race.

  16. Jesus christ died for our sins just to save us from perishing. The Bible says what shall it profit a man to gain everything and lose his soul in hell fire. We are running a human race to make heaven, we should always be reminded that one day we shall meet our, marker and we shall be asked how we lived our life in earth. May God help us and give us the grace to run this human race and make heaven at last in Jesus name Amen. Thank you ma for this motivational post

  17. This is a wonderful poem and a word of God. It reminds us the important heavenly investment which will last till eternity. Some of us have forgotten that there is eternal life, which comes after our stay on earth..
    Thank you and God bless you, mma.

  18. once having come into the presence of God, never to leave it; to abide in His presence and to live, steadily, unbrokenly, in the midst of whatever distractions or trials, with and in Him. God grant such a life to every one of us!…AMEN

  19. Indeed the earth is our temporary home therefore everything we do should be done with eternity in view. We should always remember to acknowledge the Lord and He will make straight your path.

  20. This is a wonderful reminder. We should all reconcile with God in order to avoid regrets when the time come to move into the kingdom. We should all accept Jesus Christ as our personal lord and saviour and be in a good relationship with him.

  21. Such a nice poem, reminding us the that earth is our temporary home and in whatever we do we should have eternity in view.

  22. Simply put, in everything that we do as Christians, we should always remember that everything here on earth is shortlived and we are headed to somewhere, live your life with Eternity in mind?

    Ask yourself and ascertain where you are headed, only you know the answer to that question

  23. One day we will all give account of our stay here on earth, so whatever we do should be in accordance with God. And by his grace we will pull through.

  24. It is amazing how men easily forgets that we are strangers in this world, and that a day VB will come when we will all give account of how we lived our lives. Therefore, any man who doesn’t have eternity in view is of all men most miserable. Reconciling with God is the sweetest thing to.

  25. The world is temporal, so there is no need to trust in earthly things, our focus should be the life after here

  26. Eternal blessings are upon those who focus on how to grow spiritually. The things of the earth are very temporary so we should spend less time chasing them. We should try to focus on how to grow, how to reconnect with the father and our salvation because they matter more.

  27. Eternity in view, is one of the things that keeps me going especially when the going get tough. My hope is that one day we shall see God as he really is.

  28. Words of wisdom and knowledge, I really want to live an eternal life,i want to be part of God’s moving train, after this our life there’s another life with God and that’s where I choose to be.
