The eternity continuum

The eternity continuum
by Joel Howard

How much heaven is in your heart?
When you view the world
How much heaven is in your heart?

The eternity continuum
The extent to which you and I
Have an "and ever" after forever
"Forever and ever"
That is the amount 
That is the extent
Of our joy now

Is quite different
Our unwillingness to lift eyes to see
Is what makes pain sting
And hate breed
And sadness steep
When this world we keep

Simply put
Put heaven's target
On your radar
Let questions linger
Stop to stare
Let mystery sit there
For that is where
Joy steps on doubt

And though we can't figure it out
Holy Spirit shouts it out inside

The continuum of eternity
Stretch there, you will see
