a reminder


While I am thinking of something to write on my blog today, a message from unknown sender just hit my email inbox.

Curiosity drives me to open the message.

But as timely as I need this kind of eye opener/reminder, this is what I got:




--------------------------------------------------------
The Poem
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 Christ to friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd 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, 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 cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time'

--------------------------------------------------------
Thank you very much to the sender.
Whoever you are! Wherever you from!
I do not know if you sent it to me intentionally or by error.

---------------------------------------------------------
If God brings you to it,
He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.
