A View Of Eternity--By Marcus Omer--United States

A View Of Eternity

Eternity sits on the edge of my eye.

Overhead the circling moon
dodges the little specks of light
that dart sideways
in the midnight sky.

Above the rim of my eye
the orbs of fire and ice
glide like precision clockwork
of a master watchmaker.

You, Neal, are among the few
who have touched the edge.
Did you feel the breath of God?
Could you hear His whisper?

Unshackle my earthy chains,
let me touch the beginning,
let my view be as Your view
O’ Creator of time.

Eternity sits on the edge of my eye.

  1. Marcus, thank you for sharing this inspirational poem. I loved the words "Let my view be as your view O creator of time" How I have prayed that same prayer many times in essence, desiring to know God's will. I have heard that the thing we must pray the most for is to know the things we must pray the most for and that is to know God's will so that we can pray in faith

  2. Thanks for the reminder, Marcus, that Eternity is a place to look forward to. Continued blessings.


  3. Powerful nudges and reminders in this piece... afraid the computer ate my original message and momentum but this is a gift gratefully received, thanks for sharing.

  4. Love your third verse - that's what it is all about, isn't it - for the faithful that is. Very enjoyable reading. Your words touched me this evening. Thank you...

    Hi Marcus. Thanks for sharing your lovely poem. Our finite minds can only imagine what our Heavenly Father has in store for those who obey Him. We see through a glass darkly now, but one day we'll be in His presence in glory for eternity. What a beautiful thought! God Bless you.
