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,
and jumped up from my knees.
My Christian duty now was done,
my Soul could be at ease.
All through the day I had no time,
to speak a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
they’d laugh at me I fear.
And when before the Lord I came,
I stood with downcast eyes.
In his hands he held a book,
It was the “BOOK OF OUR LIVES.”
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.”
Ladies and Gentlemen, that “BOOK OF OUR LIVES” is actually the “Book OF LIFE”, written as above for the sake of rhyme. Please find the time to meditate, to pray for yourself and others, and to say “Thank YOU” to the I AM.
