Time is Measured By Brenda Drake

            It seems when young we have so much time to accomplish all we desire to do.  Then it seems there is never enough time to do as we must do.  God is in control of the amount of my days.  All I can do is live each day loving and serving Him knowing He has good things planned ahead for me now and in the hereafter.

Time is Measured

Time is measured, each person that lives,
Has an allotted time marked as his.
In its minutes, hours, and days
Time measures their ways.
Do you wonder why time goes slow,
And then at times you wonder where it goes?
Do you think God is slow too?
Wondering why it takes so long for dreams to come true?
It is all perspectives issue my friend.
You see what you feel, God knows beginning to end.
Your instruction in the Word is to keep God in mind.
Obey the Word; thus redeeming the time.
Time is measured for you.
The time is near when dreams come true.
Soon you will know, see, hear, and taste;
The full benefit and promises of God’s grace.
A new day; a new time under Christ’s rule on earth,
As bride, as friend, to assist in His work.
God’s timing is perfect; it is all in His plan.
Rejoice holding faith close in heart while holding unto His hand.

Palms 90:12
So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

The Precious Gift of Time By Brenda Drake

One holiday season when money was scarce, it ended being one of our best Christmas memories.  We spent quality time with those we loved; our homemade gifts were heartfelt love-offerings for one another.  I spent extra time making cookies and candies for our family, friends and neighbors with no thought of receiving a gift in return. 

The Precious Gift of Time

Sometimes all you have to give is just your time.
It is a precious gift and is hard to find.
Time is money they say;
So it is not easily given away.
The gift of prayer lifted some do not see.
But its benefit is gratefully received.
Time spent loving the neighbor next door,
Is a gift to them and also to the Lord.
Time’s gift is bestowed on you too.
It is a precious gift God shares with you.
When you offer your life to Christ,
It is a gift that causes the Father delight.
In the gift-giving season as you celebrate the birth of God’s Son,
Remember to spend some quality time with your loved ones.
Whenever you have opportunity, take time to pray;
For leaders, for Country and those sad, to have a good day.
Sometimes all you have to give is your time.
But it is the best gift for it is preciously hard to find.

Ephesians 5:15-17
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Time By Brenda Drake

       Our day’s hours are completely rearranged in these trying times.  Everything that we spent time on from work to play has been altered. The evil one is a time stealer that encourages one and all to waste time in selfishness, fear, and worry. Time is a precious gift that can never be recovered; it marches steadily on with no promise of tomorrow.   Our life is put to good use when it glorifies and fits into God’s plan and purpose. Help us Holy Spirit to spend our time on earth well.


Wasted time consists of things that disgrace,
Time spent on words or deeds that you wish were erased.
Wasted time is when you look back and see,
Missed opportunities.
Many people waste time nourishing the flesh;
With things they believe bring happiness.
Time is wasted on lust, strong drink, drugs and harmful food,
Or on whatever things the flesh wants to do.
Unmindful sluggish pauses melt time away;
Along with silly busyness that eats up the day.
The wise allots their day’s hours well,
When they look back they have a good report to tell.
Prayer, praise, and worship, testimony and good deeds,
Are all valuable time- spending seeds.
Of value are times of fellowship and when lending a helping hand,
And when lifting names in prayer whenever you can.
When willing to hear the cry of the lost and those alone,
Time is well spent and to the Father a profit well known

Ephesians 5:15-17
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
