It really will not matter

At the end of the day,

Whether we were rich or poor

But rather whether we were saved.

It really will not matter

Whether we were religious or pious too,

Because unless Jesus was our Savior

Our faith simply was not true.

It really will not matter

Whether fame or success,

Was our necklace and our rear guard

Since only God’s plan was for our best.

Because only He could turn our tragedies

Into meaningful testimonies,

When we trusted Him with all our heart

So deliverance we’d see.

It really will not matter

Whether head knowledge was our crown,

Because the many lies and deceptions

With arrogance had kept us bound.

Because if we strived to impress

And to appear intelligent as well,

There would have been a void inside our soul

Where insecurities did dwell.

It was the kindness and the gentleness

That people craved to see,

With the humble spirit that came from God

That truly set us free.

And it really will not matter

Whether externally all looked fine,

Because when we stood to give account…

Reality was defined.

It really will not matter

Whether the compliments did flow,

Because God saw the insincerity

And the depths of hearts only He knows.

And it really will not matter

Whether we were respected in people’s eyes,

Because our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

Was actually despised.

But what will really matter

Is whether God’s saving love and grace,

Was our covering through Jesus Christ

When we see Him face to face.
