If all I had was todayAnd then I stepped into eternityWhat will I have left undone?Will I be able to proclaim with PaulI have finished my courseHave I even really begun to run?Oh my soulThe number of your days is shorter nowThan when you first believedNot so very long from nowYou will stand before your kingWill you have cause to be ashamed?Look unto Jesus, feeble heartDraw strength from HimTo fully live each day for His gloryAnd then on that dayAll my joy will be completeWhen I hear Him say well done
Rejoice, Praise GOD you will.
What if I knew suddenlyAll opportunity would ceaseFor me to do the works of GodWould my soul be found at peace?What if I never see againMother, father, husband, wifeHave I been faithful to proclaimTo them all of the words of this life?What will I have left undoneIf this day should be my lastWhat God ordained appointmentsWill I be found to have let pass?Tomorrows promised to no manI can live only in todayMay I be faithful in all thingsThat pertain to You, I pray.
Faith is here, faith is now. Let us make the most of the opportunities to share it!! 8-)

BrokenOne....excellent poem...you 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.B.
