The Word of God

I am still learning to be a servant of God. So on Facebook, I use the application "The Word of God", it's a daily verse or word of inspiration.
So yesterday, I found this poem that an anonymous person wrote and they posted there. I loved it and just wanted to re-post it here. It is so true and I am working very hard on finding the time to pray every day.

No Time To Pray?

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
nd jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.

All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ t...o friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd fear.

No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need.

But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast 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 any time I found"

I don't want God to forget my name! I want to have a relationship with God, not an occasional one! More like an addicting one.
When doing my homework for the recent bible study, the author mentioned that she likes to pray in the morning, to surround herself with God's word and preparing her for the day's trials. Because when you are in the word of God, you react with the word of God in mind, rather than impulsive. When reading it, it caught my attention immediately. What a statement!

So now I just have to get into the ritual to do that. I mean at the moment, my kids are my alarm clock, and even when they do, I am still tired. But one lady that, that this might be the enemy not wanting me to have time with God. So I just have to take the courage and set my alarm clock a little earlier than when the kids usually come, and pray. It is such a nice thought to surround myself with God before the day starts and then face it with Him in mind.... I really like that!
