NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN A LIFETIME

THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT I GET TO DO ONCE IN MY LIFETIME,
AND THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT I GET TO DO TWICE IN MY LIFETIME.
BUT THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT I NEVER DO IN MY LIFETIME,
NOT ONCE OR NOT TWICE,
AND I ASK MYSELF THE QUESTION: WHY NOT?
WHY WITHHOLD THAT WHICH GOD HAS GIVEN TO YOU?
WHY NOT SHARE IT AND LET IT GROW?
FOR GOD TAKES THE LITTLE THAT WE HAVE AND MULTIPLIES IT,
BUT SO OFTEN, WE GIVE, OR SHARE, OR DO, THAT WHICH IS OF NO EARTHLY GOOD.
SO OFTEN, WE SHARE THAT WHICH DOES NOT MULTIPLY,
BUT WHICH SUBTRACTS FROM THE GOOD IN AND AROUND US.
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
I HAVE SAID THINGS THAT HAVE BUILT SOMEONE UP AND IT GREW INTO SOMETHING BIGGER
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
I HAVE SAID THINGS THAT HAVE TORN DOWN AND DESTROYED THAT WHICH WAS GROWING.
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
DEATH RESULTED FROM THAT WHICH I SPOKE, THEN DEATH CAME AND TOOK THE LIFE AWAY, WITH THE DEATH I CAUSED.
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
I SHOULD HAVE SAID WELL DONE,
INSTEAD OF LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE.
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
I SHOULD HAVE SAID I AM SORRY, NOT YOU WOULD BE SORRY.
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
I SHOULD HAVE SAID I FORGIVE YOU, NOT YOU FORGIVE ME.
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
I SHOULD HAVE SAID I LOVE YOU, NOT YOU LOVE ME.
NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN MY LIFETIME,
I WISH THAT I COULD TAKE BACK THE WORDS THAT I HAVE SPOKEN,
BUT ALAS THEY ARE LIKE THE WIND, WE FEEL IT BUT WE CANNOT SEE IT,
IT PASSES BY NEVER TO COME OUR WAY AGAIN.
JUST LIKE THE PERSON DEAD AND GONE,
WE WERE ABLE TO TOUCH, TO FEEL, TO HEAR, TO SMELL AND TO EXPERIENCE THEIR PRESENCE, BUT THEY ARE NOW GONE, NEVER TO RETURN.
NOT NOW, ONCE OR TWICE IN MY LIFETIME


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
