a teaching rhyme
by JD Collier

a time has been set that no one knows
when those “in Christ” will rise
as nature sustains
a mind boggling change
ponder this hope fed surmise. . . .

i will have thoughts that i’ve never thought
understand the “whys” of the past
new postulations understood
old puzzlings resolved at last

i will have feelings like i’ve never felt
a lifting of weight from my chest
lightness and joy and gladness of heart
unrestrained laughter
unruffled rest

i will hear sounds like i’ve never heard
as nature and melody blend
decibels joining with silence and praise
as audible blessings descend

i will see things that i’ve never seen
amazement at what i behold
light and color never perceived
and beauty that’s never been told

i will do things that i’ve never done
filled with great fervor and zeal
desire and passions and love will unite
to accomplish God’s perfect will

my senses once blinded
now reaches new height
as God continues to bless
my thinking and feeling and hearing and sight
are more than my words can express

released from the strain
of the evil domain
the soul of my being is free. . . .
but this is my guess
it’s only a guess
perhaps something better will be


Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is .
1 John 3:2  NIV
