Time

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away . So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

—Psalm 90:10, 12.

 

Some say that time flies,
Some say it goes slow;
But there’s 24 hours in a day,
This for sure we know.

Others may feel for sure
That time seems to stand still.
Others may feel beyond a doubt
That time will bring what it will.

But to those who know the Lord,
Time should mean something altogether new.
Time should be a precious treasure,
Full of grace, goodness and mercy too.

Days into weeks, weeks into years,
So teach us to number our days.
That we may apply our hearts unto wisdom-
That our ways may be filled with praise.

Use it carefully, use it wisely;
Time for us will soon be o’er.
Once it’s gone, you can’t get it back.
Bitterly, sweetly, it shall be no more.

Redeem the time, buy it very well,
So full of evil our days.
Understand what the will of God is;
Let it dominate all your ways.

Time shall be no more,
On that blessed Heavenly shore.
When with our Savior and Lord-
Yes, sweetly, blessedly, time shall be no more.

—Gene Griffin

In Mosul, ISIS militants marked with a spray-painted ن (the Arabic letter for “N”) all Christian property to be seized after the ultimatum. “N”, or ن , is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. #pray4thepersecuted
