A Moment In Eternity

A Moment In Eternity short poem

Uploaded by Jack Thompson

Emotions tend to drive how we as humans react day to day
Yet, emotions are from one of the smallest parts of the brain
It is from emotions that we feel stressed and on the mind It does weigh.
if one allows this to forever be their guide then it will cause a mighty drain.

Eternity is a concept that we fail to understand and seems out of reach,
Time has no meaning in eternity yet time means all to us today
This life we live and history of man is but a grain in eternity’s beach.
Yet we allow these moments in life to put our human emotions on display.

One thing must be remembered and never forgotten, that we have an eternal soul
The Holy Spirit, when inside allows man to become a son of God that is eternal
This flesh will pass away in a moment, yet the soul is eternal with God in control
All things in these moments of life will pass and the troubles come from the external.

The good and bad, the suffering and pain, the miracles and sicknesses are part of life,
Some are healed, some are not, some are raised some pass on to the grave
I cannot explain how life chooses, and why so many must live in strife
But the secret to success in life is not to allow a “moment” affect how we behave.

Happy and sad, fight and flight are moments that will come and go,
Joy is a decision in our mind not an emotional fling that can pass
We can forever have Joy in life no matter what life will bestow
A made up mind and a decision for joy will allow a life to shine as brass

When I understand that all that happens in life is but a moment going up and down
I can have peace to know that one fact will never alter what is internal
I must continue to walk this life no matter what to be able to receive my crown
Truth is, “nothing that happens in a moment can alter what is eternal!”
