SKITS

I usually stick to poem writing but thought this might work as a skit. It's a discussion between you(or someone else) and God. Please let me know what you think.
God: "My child, please, come and talk to Me a while.
It's been so long since you gave me some of your time
And I miss seeing your beautiful smile."

You: "Right now's just not a good time.
See, I need to be out the door in five!
And I know You understand
'cause You're such a good man.
Yes, I know that yesterday
I said I'd take the time to pray...

And I had every intention to sit down with my Bible and read...
But so many unexpected things came up You see!
It really wasn't my fault that I wasn't able to get to You.
Even without those unexpected things
I just had so much to do.

I know I promised I'd spend my morning with You...
Just like you've asked me to...
I even planned to get up early...
But my alarm clock's goin' off and I'm in such a hurry! ...

Right now I'm in such a hurry...
I don't have the time, but don't You worry...

I will take the time
To make the time
To spend some time with You!

I will take the time
To make the time
To spend some time with You!

For now, why don't You wait in line? I'll get to You in time...

Now I gotta go, I gotta run!
The clock's ticking away my list of to-do's to get done!
So please, just wait here for me
I promise, later we'll talk-just You and me."

God: "My child, please, come and talk to Me a while.
It's been so long since you gave me some of your time
And I miss seeing your beautiful smile."

You: Yes Lord, I'm back, and You're still here I see.
I'm so glad You took the time to wait for me.
Now we're gonna talk but first let me take a moment to rest.
I had such a hectic day and now I'm just so stressed!

So just give me a minute, and then I promise we'll talk...
(slight tempo change)
What happened? Oh my gosh!
Look at the clock!
I must have dosed off.
What happened to my sock?

Lord, I just don't have the time to talk with You!
The kids will be home and I've still got to make dinner too!
Then it's time for homework, baths, and bed...
I have so much to do that I feel like I'm losing my head!

I'd really love to spend some time with You
But right now I just have too much to do...

Now I gotta go, I gotta run!
The clock is ticking away my list of to-do's to get done!
So please, just wait here for me
I promise, later we'll talk-just You and me.

God: "My child, please, come and talk to Me a while.
It's been so long since you gave me some of your time
And I miss seeing your beautiful smile."

You: (Out of breath)
"Lord, I'm so SORRY that You're still waiting for me!
Just let me catch my breath! Satan is STRANGLING ME!
I always have SO MUCH in my day to do and
Everything TAKES SO MUCH longer than I had planned!

This world DEMANDS so much of my TIME FROM ME!
Could You wait a little longer? My show's on T.V.
I promise, just a little longer I'll make You wait.
As soon as this show is over, God, we've got a date!

We'll talk as long as you want
And I'll read and pray.
I just need another hour!
Come on, what do You say?

Right now I'm in such a hurry...
I don't have the time, but don't You worry...

I will take the time
To make the time
To spend some time with You!

I will take the time
To make the time
To spend some time with You!

Now the hour of prayer has passed
But I can't talk right now.
On my couch I've CRASHED!
I'm worn OUT! My priorities seem in line.
You've been put off again, but I will give You time!

But then again I might just sleep in! And then my priorities will start all over again.
In fact, I'll probably over-sleep every day!
My alarm can't do it's job, so I'll always be running late!

But hey, God what do you say?
I don't think a lifetime is too long for You to wait!
But hey, God what do you say?
I don't think a lifetime is too long for You to wait!

God: ENOUGH! What are you doing to me, can't you see?
How could I not be number one of your priorityies?
Do you think excuses can explain the time we've missed?
You blow Me off, but before you do, think of this....

What if Jesus hadn't had the time to sacrifice His life?
What if He had looked me in the eyes and siad "I'm too young to die?"
You know I'd love to, but Father GET A CLUE!
I've got so many miracles left in me to do.

You know I'd love to save these wretches from their sin!
But I don't know if I can spare the time to fit it in!
Father, I promise, I will make the time to get this done.
But I the Angels play at seven, and I got to run!

I'm really busy. They'll just have to wait.
Gabrielle just sent a message sayin' she's my date!
Just make up somethin'. Tell'em I'll be late.
Cuz they were evil, and this is their fate!

Aren't you glad that's not the way it was?
Aren't you glad that Jesus showed us love?
In our lives Jesus should always take first place!
We should make Him number one each and every day!
