Time is something we all have
Using it is good nor bad
Time can make us glad or sad
Depending what you do

Today I urge you recognize
If your time inefficient flies
If it does then realize
You have to make a change

Find a way to help someone
Find a way to spread some love
Give a smile as bright as sun
And make a better world

Mercy Overwhelms

Every second of the day
Every moment when I pray
Every hour that goes away
His mercy overwhelms me

Every word that my mouth speaks
Every time His will I seek
Every day of every week
His mercy overwhelms me

Mercy at my every turn
Flows into my life
Mercy more than I can see
Helps me to survive
Mercy grand and glorious
Like a wave that swells
Washes down all over me
Mercy overwhelms

Every week that passes by
Every month that hears my cry
Every year for all of time
His mercy overwhelms me

Every breath
Every sound
Every touch
Every word
Every prayer
Every song
Every sight
Every thing

Mercy at my every turn
Flows into my life
Mercy more than I can see
Helps me to survive
Mercy grand and glorious
Like a wave that swells
Washes down all over me
Mercy overwhelms

Mercy grand and glorious
Like a wave that swells
Washes down all over me
Mercy overwhelms
Mercy overwhelms
Mercy overwhelms

There is Still Time

Sometimes it seems very slow
Sometimes it goes too fast
Sometimes we don’t want any more
Sometimes we hope it lasts

Our time is one possession
We all have just the same
No matter what you do each day
There’s none that will remain

One day soon the Lord will come
He will come in a blink
If we have not accepted Him
Our life will really stink

I pray you’ll take a little time
To think about this fact
When you really think it through
I pray you will react

 

In response to the daily promptĀ Blink

Valuable Time

It seems that my time is fleeting
The day’s gone before it begins
Then when I look back
It seems that I lack
Anything that would last in the end

I observe how my day proceeded
To see if there’s something I missed
The thought came to mind
I did not carve time
To spend with my Savior and Lord

I bow down and make a commitment
That upcoming days I will change
I’ll start out the day
With prayer and with praise
Then my time will have value again

How Big?

Have you ever looked up to the sky in the darkest lonely hours
And seen the brilliant light that travels from those distant stars
Have you wondered what it would be like to go that far
And visit those amazing stars that shine in lonely hours

If we could travel to the moon and back in just one hour
It would take 16 days to travel to this sun of ours
To travel to the nearest star after our sun so far
Would take ten thousand years to travel to the closest star

They say 400 billion stars are in our galaxy
But with our naked eye six thousand’s all we see
With about 100 billion galaxies floating in that sea
we start too realize just how big our God must be

If He could have the mind to create such a wondrous thing
Just thing how marvelous His love to create someone like me
Unique in all my ways now He has made me to be free
To trust in His great love that sent His Son to rescue me

How big is our great God who plans for all the universe
Yet looks down on this simple place of home that we call earth
He takes the time to make us part of His great love and worth
And we can live forever for He’s given us new birth
