Another Day has Passed By Brenda Drake

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.

Colossians  4:5-6
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.

Galatians 6:9-10
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.
