I Was Excited To Talk To God

I was excited to talk to God
I was excited to seek God’s advice about my new project
I knelt down to pray but not for long, 
I had a lot to think about.
No time, no time, too much to do

I had to hurry and get to university.
For assignments would soon be due. 
I also had to hurry to get to work

So I knelt down and said a quick prayer, 

And I jumped up off hastily

My Christian task for today was now done 
My soul and spirit could rest at ease..... 
No time, no time, too much to do, 

All day long I had no time
To spread a word of joy

No time to speak about my love for Jesus Christ to my family and friends, 

No time to speak to my work colleagues about Jesus Christ

They'd laugh at me I'd fear. 
No time, no time, too much to do, 
That was my constant whinge and worry

No time to give to people in need
No time to study my New King James Bible (In fact, I have all the versions on my IPad).

No time to invest in myself
No time to invest in my family
No time, no time, too much to do

But I had time to view Facebook, I had time to watch the latest episode of Sunday Best, I had time to speak to my darling. I had time to read the news, I even had time to relax in the bath.  

But at last the time, the time to die. 
I went before the Lord, 
I came, I stood with dejected eyes. 
For in His hands, God held a book; 
It was the Book of Life. 
God looked into His book and said 
"Your name I cannot find 
I once was going to write it down... 
But never found the time".

Do you have time for God?

Series on personal reflection of a Practising Christian.


  1. The Christian ought to live in such a way that men can know that he is living the life of God as provided for in the bible. the line must be clear in the path of prayer decision making and in everything that concerns or affects his life. how would a christian not commend his actions and day to God or why would a christian just jump into a decision or opportunity without knowing the mind of God or bending his knees to clarify issues.
    Child of God must know how to engage in divine consultation to thrive well and obtain the maximum benefit of following the Lord

    1. Thank you for your comment Anonymous. It is so easy to get carried away with things..we sometimes forget to talk to God. May the Lord continue to help us to put Him first in ALL that we do.
