The Rocky road to Heaven.



There`s a very well known saying and its true without doubt,

The energy that we put in life is all that we get out.

Life does not give us bonus points or a double Christmas cheque,

We get back just what we have earned or we`re  thrown out on our neck.


This fact may cause confusion for my many Christian friends,

Who took the straight and narrow path, the one that has no bends.

If the signpost just said  “Heaven, a smooth ride straight ahead.”

You`ve hooked up with the Devil and you`ll see him when you`re dead.


We all think we have problems and for most that fact is true,

Some make attempts to sort it out, but others jump the queue.

If you are taking short-cuts, and have scored an easy goal,

Step back my friend or you will end with a God forsaken soul.


Yes life is one long journey and its strewn with rocks and stones,

There seems no end to the twists and bends plus that set of aching bones.

But always keep your spirits high and its easier with a smile,

With help and love from Him above…you`ll go that extra mile.


You may meet fellow travelers too, on that road to Paradise

The fallen souls who`ve trod hot coals… they have to pay the price.

Be sure that God will bless you if you trust in Him alone

Keep on the track and don`t turn back then you`ll meet Him on the Throne.
