Do You Have Time?

Post  Fenny West on Tue 16 Sep 2008, 10:55 pm

THE POEM
I knelt to pray but not for long, I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work for bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer, and jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done my soul could rest at ease.

All day long I had no time to spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends, they'd laugh at me I'd fear.
No time, no time, too much to do, that was my constant cry,
no time to give to souls in need but at last the time, the time to die.

I went before the Lord, I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God held a book, it was the Book of Life.
God looked into his book and said 'Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down but never found the time'

Now do you have the time to pass it on?

Dear Fenny

It is so true that for God we have no or little time. On the other hand I see people of different faiths going through very tough routine of worship. At the same time I also find wizards and witches going through impossible rituals and routines to get power. They would either go to graveyards or stay at some lonely place and practice their spells for 40 nights.

We as Christians are so casual and make lots of excuses just not to find 5 minutes for God and then we are the first ones to blame God for our own doings. Thank you for preaching a very important aspect of our spiritual life that is ignored or taken for granted by many.

God bless you and your family

Thank you very much, Waqar

I hasten to say, I did not write the poem. It was forwarded to me and I passed it on to this site for others. That is why you have anon below it, meaning anonimous, author unknown.

God bless you and your family.

Fenny
