Time is A Gift From God

Friday, December 27, 2013

We stand once more on the threshold
Of a shining and unblemished year,
Untouched yet by time and frustration,
Unclouded by failure and fear…
How will we use the days of this year
And time God has placed in our hands?
Will we waste the minutes and squander the hours,
Leaving “no prints behind in time’s sands”?
Will we vainly complain that life is so swift,
That we haven’t the time to do good?
Our days are too crowded, our hours are too short
To do all the good things we should…
We say we would pray if we just had the time,
And be kind to all those in need,
But we live in a world of “planned Progress”
And our national password is speed…
God, grant us the grace as another year starts
To use all the hours of our days,
Not for our own selfish interest
And our own willful, often-wrong ways…
But teach us to take time for praying
And to find time for listening to You
So each day is spent well and wisely
Doing that You most want us to do,
