 If all I had was today

If all I had was today
And then I stepped into eternity
What will I have left undone?

Will I be able to proclaim with Paul
I have finished my course
Have I even really begun to run?

Oh my soul
The number of your days is shorter now
Than when you first believed

Not so very long from now
You will stand before your king
Will you have cause to be ashamed?

Look unto Jesus, feeble heart
Draw strength from Him
To fully live each day for His glory

And then on that day
All my joy will be complete
When I hear Him say “well done”

 Re: If all I had was today

What if I knew suddenly
All opportunity would cease
For me to do the works of God
Would my soul be found at peace?

What if I never see again
Mother, father, husband, wife
Have I been faithful to proclaim
To them all of the words of this life?

What will I have left undone
If this day should be my last
What God ordained appointments
Will I be found to have let pass?

Tomorrow’s promised to no man
I can live only in today
May I be faithful in all things
That pertain to You, I pray.

What a beautiful poem! Thank you so much for the reminder that our days are limited. God has given us the grand gift of this day to bring Him honor, and to bring Him to our loved ones.

God bless you always and in all ways!

 Re: If all I had was today

excellent are so gifted!

If we lived each moment with that perspective of it being the last possible chance to Glorify His Name...we'd make sure we would be speaking forth His Truth every single time we opened our mouths to speak, AND we would open our mouths to speak, much more often than we do!!!

Thank you for sharing your God given Talent with us.
