Time is a commodity we often times neglect. 

We thoughtlessly waste it when…

we fail to make time for our families, conveniently;
we fail to make time for the people whom we claimed we love and value, indifferently;
we fail to make time for people in need especially those around us, intentionally;
we fail to make time for ourselves, selflessly; and worse…
we fail to make time for the LORD who gave His all for us, nonchalantly. 

When we fail to make time, we fail to love; for love is spelled, T-I-M-E.


Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
    Remind me that my days are numbered—
    how fleeting my life is.
 You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
    My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
    at best, each of us is but a breath.”
Psalm 39:4-5

Make the most of your time by making time.

Every Second Counts…

“Teach us to realize the brevity of life,
    so that we may grow in wisdom.”     

— Psalm 90:12 (NLT)

“Your life is God’s gift to you.
What you do with it is your gift to Him.”


How are you living your life right now?

A Letter from the Hotel

I once was a man, well to-do and content.

I had great friends for whom my time was well spent.

I had a power that would send people seething in envy.

But then again, I never realized that to me my life was only lent.

♦ ♦ ♦

I reveled in the streets as if no one was there.

I laughed and was merry as if I had no care.

I got what I want, even if others were hurt.

I thought, “This is the life!” until I fell for a snare.

 ♦ ♦ ♦

I fell and fell hard with the Spectre on my back.

It didn’t let me go, never gave me any slack.

I cried out, begging for a second chance.

But still the car crashed into a tree off the road’s track.

White-masked men said I do not have any hope.

I lost too much blood; my body can no longer cope.

Is this all true? Am I really leaving the world?

Before I knew it, darkness entangled me like a rope.

♦ ♦ ♦

Flames burst into power as I found myself weeping.

Loneliness and Fear were embracing me; fruits of anguish were they reaping.

How could I have let life fly past me by?

I found out too late that it was Elyon whom I should have been worshipping.

♦ ♦ ♦

I am still a man, however, am suffering because of time stupidly spent.

I have no friends here; all are crying in torment.

Only he has power and I am experiencing his wrath.

But then again, you are still living, so don’t waste your life that’s only for rent.

♦ ♦ ♦

“This is the testimony in essence: God gave us eternal life; the life is in his Son.

So, whoever has the Son, has life; whoever rejects the Son, rejects life.” 

— 1 John 5:11-12 (MSG)
