In our troubled world, with it contrary winds that blow against what we want, desire and believe as true we may become discouraged with our life and become weary in our well-doing. We get side-tracked and lose sight of our kingdom-goals and purposes. We need to do three things; get back into the presence of our Lord and the Bible; then with His strength and new purpose move to get up
and carry on.
When you have rested awhile in the presence of the Son,
And He has restored your inner smile in light of all He has done.
Then it is time to pick up your bed
To move on to the place the Spirit paves ahead.
When you have been freed from the heavy burden on your back,
And the light shines bright upon your path.
It’s time to walk on with purpose to your step.
Move on to the opened door; God is not finished with you yet.
Move on with confidence I lead the way.
Move on with assurance God plans your every day.
When the clouds cover the land with its discouraging sounds,
Rejoice in the knowledge you walk on Holy ground.
Angels watch over you and gives strength when you are weak.
They give muscle to the words you for God’s kingdom speaks.
You are ready and willing and God makes you able to do,
All He has ordained; all you need to do is move.
Commit your work to the Lord,
and your plans will be established.
Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Time marches on, steady in its pace. I wonder at times where did all those years go? Now I ponder, where did the day go? My desire since I met Jesus is to live in a way that brings profit to His Kingdom. Sometimes as my day is examined I wonder if and how it has glorified Him. Did I squander its precious moments or did it shine for Him?
Another Day has Passed
Another day has passed,
The time goes so, so fast.
Opportunity is lost; did I do all I could do?
Jesus have I spent my time wisely for You?
My future assures of such glorious things to come,
But have I obeyed you today? Have I God’s will done?
Did I in the Word’s promises abide?
And in Your protection hide?
Am I guilty of trying to please man too much?
Or, do I stand upon the Word and in it trust?
Have I allowed the cares of life to cause despair?
Have I been thankful, or have I cried unfair?
Does my head hang low as I claim defeat?
Or do I trust God to my needs meet?
Help me Jesus to in the Word grow strong.
Dressed in the armor provided to help me along.
Father, help me to be like Your Son Jesus Christ;
Each day living in service, a self-sacrificing life.
Seeking to spend each valuable day doing Your will,
So heavens rooms will be filled.
Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
