Tick Tock

Tick Tock

Tick Tock… Tick Tock…
time is ever moving on.
Soon you’ll be a memory
when your life is gone.

How will you elect to spend it?
Busy… or at rest?
Are you eager to commence
and try your very best?

We can’t know the years we’ll live
or how long we’ll be here.
Some of us can’t make our minds up;
life isn’t very clear.

What shall we do with the time we have?
What course shall we plot?
Should we try harder to succeed
or be content with what we’ve got?

Only “YOU” can best decide…
you must make that choice.
You’ll lament your own decisions
or you may rejoice.

Life itself lends many options…
all could go astray.
You could choose to sit it out
or be on your way.

All the time you spend in waiting…
your time is rushing by.
You’ll never know your purpose “here”
if you fail to try.

“You” are filled with many talents…
why not select just “one”?
GOD will magnify HIS blessings
“After” you’ve begun.

A wheel won’t fill it’s purpose…
if it fails to roll.
“Your” own life has much more meaning;
“You” possess a soul.

Start today, take the risk…
what do you have to lose?
GOD will bless each step you take;
HE waits for you to choose.

There’s more to life, than what you’ve done…
This you’ll soon discover.
If you stumble in your quest
HE’LL help you to recover.

If you fail to seize your chances…
your time will soon diminish.
It’s not important how you start…
but how you finally finish.

So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.

Psalm 90:12
