Soul Searching

Published September 5, 2013 by Healthy Living with nature

No Time, No Time….


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 God to friends.

 They’d laugh at me I 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 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 could not find.

I was going to write it down….

 But, I never found the time.”
