This is one of my favorite poems ever read:
The suffering of this world seems tough,
But heaven will be cheap enough.
Enterprises beyond our dreams
Will surpass all earthly schemes.
Why should we seek fame or wealth,
Be full of pride and sinful self,
Since our Saviour offers more
When we go through heaven’s door?
If we really want success,
We will alow our God to bless.
On this earth we’re learning how
To die to self here and now.
If we are willing to submit,
And will openly admit,
God has plans much better still,
When we learn to do His will.
