TIME AND ETERNITY


Oh time, how few thy value weigh,
How few will estimate a day!
Days, months and years are rolling on,
The soul neglected and undone!

In painful cares, or empty joys,
Our life its precious hours destroys:
While death stands watching at our side,
Eager to stop the living tide.

Was it for this, ye mortal race,
Your Maker gave you here a place?
Was it for this his thought design'd
The frame of your immortal mind?

For nobler cares, for joys sublime,
He fashion'd all the sons of time;
Pilgrims on earth, but soon to be
The heirs of immortality.

This season of your being, know,
Is giv'n to you-- your seeds to sow;
Wisdom and folly's differing grain
In future world is bliss or pain.

Then let me every day review,
Idle or busy, search it through;
Then let us every day give heed,
To God, ourselves and time to yield.


~Poem By Dr. Thomas Scott~

A Little Note From Cobblestone Road:

Psalm 90:12  
So teach us to number our days, that we
may apply our hearts unto wisdom.


How much time have we all wasted in our life?
Sitting in front of the TV is just the "norm" today...
we just like passing time away. Our Bibles dusty?
Our conscience numbed? and we sit and do
nothing but watch images dance across
a plasma screen-- entertainment?

Or how about video games? Social networking? Hobbies?
All these things may seem important but we should not neglect
our relationship with the Lord and how we spend our precious
time here on earth.

May God grant His people the grace to manage their
time wisely, as we never know when the hour is
that He will call us home. We are all guilty of this
in the Western world in some capacity. May we pray
to God to be led by Him and that He would empower
us to do His will for each and every minute of our days.
We are all living on borrowed time.
