This One Life I Give

My Friend Debbie - One Life to Give

Lost hope and lost chances

Lost time without backward glances

Lost opportunities taken so lightly,

Life rushing by thought of so slightly.


Chasing dreams that have gone astray

Running after rainbows that fade away

Nothing accomplished, nothing gained

Satan steals time, I see it so plain.


Life is lived and time has passed

Then reality awakens at last.

God restores and God redeems

And shows me time is to be esteemed.


It’s not always what’s said or what’s done

It’s not how it ends or how it begun

It’s our attitude about life and how we live it

It’s our gratitude for life and how we give it.


Life in increments of time given away

So great a gift, words cannot say.

Lived for others as a precious token,

In humility, with words unspoken.


Thank You Lord for each and every day

Twenty four hours of my life to give away

Lived for others that they may be blessed,

Given to God as a loving caress.


     For the past few years the Lord has been dealing with me regarding His precious gift of life.  It is a gift of such magnitude it is beyond description, yet thought of so little and taken for granted.

     In the next few months I will be sharing some of the thoughts He has placed in my spirit.  What I will be sharing is not new, as the Bible states in Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJV “There is no new thing under the sun,” but perhaps these articles will cause us to pause for a moment to consider God’s precious gift of life.
