At The End of Life’s Journey

by Jason Kirk Bartley

On this journey we call life,
decisions we will make,
different paths to follow,
different roads to take.
Many become “sightseers,”
the ones who wait and see.
Then you have the Christians,
one’s like you and me.
When Life’s trials or troubles beset you,
do you hide in fear?
Or are you among the small group who pushes through and persevere?
Life will come at everyone in many different ways,
maybe a death in the family, loss of home, or health, even a loss of pay.
God’s people enjoy the journey,
for peace and blessings are from Him.
He places joy in their hearts,
where they once were dim.
They’re lights for our Master.
We guide others with our lamps.
Life’s journey is not completed,
but we have our Savior’s stamp.
We have Jesus in our hearts,
less to worry about
We will reach our destination,
with God and with a shout.
At the end of Life’s journey, do you believe and receive,
At the end of Life’s journey, a golden crown waits for me.
At the end of this journey,
some loved ones and friends I’ll meet.
I’ll take my golden crown and toss it at our Savior’s feet.
