No More Time To Waste

Lord, hymns like the one below (Have I Done My Best for Jesus? by E. D. Young ) make me ask how I even have the right to ask such honest questions, let alone sing the words. But it also compels me not to waste any more precious time that needs to be used for furthering Your kingdom and reaching out to Your children. You deserve ALL Your praise! And I don’t wish to waste one more breath with questions that YOU have not given me as You do when You give me poetry, words of encouragement for others, and this invaluable hymn You gave to E.D. Young.

Thank You for allowing me to learn it,
for every time You have brought it to mind,
and for allowing me to sing it TO and FOR You!

I love You, Father! ❤ I love You, Jesus! ❤ I love You, Holy Spirit! ❤

I wonder have I done my best for Jesus,
Who died upon the cruel tree?
To think of His great sacrifice at Calvary!
I know my Lord expects the best from me.

The hours that I have wasted are so many
The hours I’ve spent for Christ so few;
Because of all my lack of love for Jesus,
I wonder if His heart is breaking too.

I wonder have I cared enough for others,
Or have I let them die alone?
I might have helped a wand’rer to the Savior,
The seed of precious Life I might have sown.

No longer will I stay within the valley
I’ll climb to mountain heights above;
The world is dying now for want of someone
To tell them of the Savior’s matchless love.

Chorus:
How many are the lost that I have lifted?
How many are the chained I’ve helped to free?
I wonder, have I done my best for Jesus,
When He has done so much for me?
– Have I Done My Best for Jesus? by E. D. Young –

Blowing Wind

gaillovesgodspoetry

A wind blows through, stirring the past.
Memories try to invade.
A love speaks up and makes it clear,
“This is the new creature I have made.”
Guilt finds opposition, shame meets its match.
God sends a smile for my spirit.
He reminds me every time I pray
That He does hear it.
I bow my head, close my eyes,
And mention the blowing wind.
He reassures He’s on the throne,
And protects me once again.
How great the grace and mercy of God,
Just to utter a prayer.
I cast my every care on Him
Because I know He cares.

Life Swimming Under

gaillovesgodspoetry

So much life just floating about,
Drifting with the flow.
Some are in a hurry,
Just swimming wherever they go.
The light and water
Playfully dance.
The eye and the mind
Are delightfully entranced.
The creatures are lively,
Creating ripples and waves.
I am entertained
By the show they make.
God is so gentle, generous, and loving
To create such wonder.
There is such beauty
In the life swimming under.

Word Play Salvation

gaillovesgodspoetry

Seashell, seahorse, seashore.
I just don’t want to fight anymore.
Straw hat, straw broom, straw chair.
I kneel and surrender in prayer.
Bookstore, bookshelf, bookends.
I atone and seek to make amends.
Light switch, light bulb, lighthouse.
God amazes and wows.
Word Game, word count, WordPress.
I stray less and less.
Waterway, waterfall, water filter.
I learn to love my brother and sister.
Skyline, skylight, sky view.
I learn the right thing to do.
Buttermilk, butter bean, butter knife.
I have invited Christ into my life.

Convalesce In His Rest

gaillovesgodspoetry

Words dripping from heaven
For those who will hear.
A loving Savior
Thinks you are dear.
His eyes look o’er you,
Everywhere you go.
Every trouble you suffer,
He already knows.
His hand holds yours
As He leads you along.
He longs to heal you,
And make you strong.
Lay down your burdens
And convalesce.
Your God in heaven
Has promised you rest.

The Holy Ghost loves you! ❤
