"G" is for ... Gonna Be Gone

"Do not let your heart be troubled, believe in God, Believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going."
John 14:1-4, NASB (emphasis mine)

A trio I sang with for a few years loved Lanny Wolfe's music, and one of our favorite songs to share was "I'm Gonna Be Gone." I couldn't find a dowload of his song and our modest cassette (yes, it was a looonnng time ago) is now nestled somewhere in a safe place. I did fine the lyrics online. Here are a few of them:
"I'm Gonna be Gone"
I'm gonna be gone
In the twinkling of an eye
I'm gonna be gone
Won't have time to say goodbye
I'm gonna be gone
It could be while I'm singin' this song
I'm gonna be gone, and it won't be long
I'm gonna be gone.
This old world's not getting better
Everyday it's getting worse
So much fighting and confusion
Going on down here on earth
But I don't let it bother me
'Cause I'm not here to stay
I know my Lord is coming soon
And I'll be caught away.
It could be just any morning
it could be at night or noon
We don't know just when He's coming
But we know He's coming soon
I can say with calm assurance
This old world is not my home
One of the days you're gonna look for me
Praise God, I'm gonna be gone.
Does anyone else think this day is coming sooner, rather than later? Praise God we're Gonna be Gone!
