That monopolizes our days.
We must be here, or maybe there,
It seems we’re running in a maze
We must check the appointment book,
before we ever begin our day.
We’re looking for a tiny spot,
where we might rest, or play.
But seldom do we find that spot,
and maybe, must skip devotions.
We shower and dress, and rush out the door.
(There’s not even time for lotions.)
And so, our days are passing away;
the years rush speedily by.
I wonder if it’s so important,
and will I even find time to die?
But what about eternity?
Have we considered our pace?
The thing that’s most important,
is how we run the race.
Where’s the time to serve our Savior,
in the light of heaven’s view?
We need to prioritize our time;
before this life is through.
We’ll give account of each moment,
that we have fritted away.
I want my heart to be ready,
on that final judgment day.
Our friends are so important,
yet, do I share my Savior?
I for one am very convinced;
I need a change in my behavior.
“Number your days,” is God’s command.
Life will go on, when our life ends.
God saved my soul for a purpose,
and upon this plan, He depends.
I confess, instead of overcoming,
life has overcome me.
Lord, help me to count the cost;
and give more of my time to Thee.
