TIME GONE- WHAT THEN?

When I was a child I laughed and sometimes I wept.  TIME CREPT.

My older brothers had advantages that I did not have.  They called me “baby” and I felt insulted. It seemed I’d never get big like my daddy and brothers.

When as a youth I dreamed and talked.  TIME WALKED.                     

Visions of what I would do when I became a man.  I was ready for any task ahead. Yet it seemed an eternity before I would be old enough to qualify for the opportunities offered me by the future.

When I became a full grown man, TIME RAN.

Opportunities came faster now than I could prudently handle them.  Somewhere I had failed to tie in spiritual growth along with my physical and mental development.  Yes, I had now obeyed the gospel. The first principles I knew but that’s about all. My name was on the local church roll along with lots of others.  Some of them uncommitted like me… but time did not permit me now to add all the Christian graces….

When older still I grew.  TIME FLEW.

Not enough hours in the day.  Not enough days in the week. My knowledge brought on added responsibilities…but mostly of carnal nature.  My spiritual development must come, but there just isn’t enough time. TIME FLIES.

Someday as time travel on; we will all have to say….TIME GONE!!!

James 4: 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
