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.
