No Time

I knelt to pray, but not for long,
I had too much to do.
Must hurry off and get to work,
For bills would soon be due.

And so I said a hurried prayer,
Jumped, up from off my knees,
My Christian duty now was done.
My soul could be at ease.

All through the day I had not time
To speak a word of Christ to friends.
They'd laugh at me I feared.

No time, no time, too much to do.
That was my constant cry.
No time to give to those in need.
At last t'was time to die.

And when before the Lord I came
I stood with downcast eves.
Within his hands he 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.

I have to share how my prayers were recently answered. I prayed for healing and for God to help me feel better overall...you see I have kidney failure. When I saw the doctor last time we spoke of transplant and dialysis. I went this past week prepared to go on dialysis till a transplant could be found. Instead my kidney function has doubled! If this keeps up I won't have to be on dialysis for a very long time! Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!
