Too Busy?

I came across this poem from a friend of mine.
Dunno who wrote it, nor the title of it,
tried to search through mr. google but still cant find.
However, like my friend said this poem sort of a good reminder especially
for busy people like us.

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

And so I said a hurried prayer,
Jumped up from off my knees,
My Christian duties now were done,
My soul could be at ease.

All through the day I had no time
To speak a word of cheer;
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They’d laugh at me I feared.

No time, no time, too much to do.
That was my constant cry;
No time to give to those in need –
At least was time to die.

And when before the Lord I came,
I stood with downcast eyes;
Within His hands He 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.”

And my friend said this:
It gives me shiver reading the end of it. Now the questions; are we too busy with work, school, family, relationship, hobbies, or other things that has put our relationship with God at distant; where we only go to Him where we feel like it, where after a hurried prayer we feel satisfied, where we're too focussed on reaching our goal without caring about what impacts it brings to our surroundings, or where we no longer have compassion for those in needs.

Our busyness right now can cost us forever. Remember, if we're heading in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns...

Have a blessed day busy people, but never too busy for God :)
