Time Passes So Quickly

Time Passes So Quickly

Our time here on earth passes by so quickly,

We're born, we grow and too soon ready to die.

We have never been able to slow the process,

But in so many ways we are truly willing to try.


We try everything that man's mind will invent,

There is nothing too ridiculous that we won't try.

We would gladly spend all of our worldly wealth

Just to try to hold back the day that we will die.


Still,if we would just give our heart to The Lord

Then we would have no reason to fear at all.

When we know our sins have all been forgiven

There will be no fear when we hear The Lord call !


The day that we surrender our life to The Lord

He will take all of our sins and toss them all away.

The day that He will call us to come with Him

That will then be such a glad and joy filled day.


Why should man want to stay here on earth

Where there is not much left but fear and strife?

Where there is no place now that is normalcy,

And a married couple is not just a man and wife.


There are places that you must now carry a gun

And children are not even safe in their school,

You know where they learned their A B C's ,

And in their home they learned the Golden Rule.


But nowadays you dare not mention the Lord,

They act like God's name is just a dirty word .

You can speak any foul language you know

But do not dare mention the name of The Lord.


What has happened to the leaders of this land ,

Are they so blind that they know not what they do ?

In school they used to say The Lord's prayer,

The Pledge of Allegiance and Under God ,too.


Is all of the world living with such blinded eyes ?

Eyes that can"t see and hearts that no longer care.

Don't they know that life won't go on here forever,

And in our final days it will be too hard to bear.


Can you imagine crying for rocks and mountains

To escape from the wrath of a long suffering God?

What good will all of man's wealth do for him then

When his life is over and he lies beneath the sod?


You think about it ,does it not seem strange to you

That a few people can change lives of all in this land ?

And can't you feel the fear and quaking in their heart

As before God on Judgment Day they will stand?

If the Christians look around this world and

see all that is going on here and are heart

broken what has happened to this country

that God brought His people to can you

imagine how he must feel as He looks down

at the terrible mess we have here now ?How

much longer will God put up with all of the

evilness and destruction in the world now?

Hi Murry, I didn't expect the poem would be on so soon , I didn't get it on till late last night . I am glad that you like the poems and I appreciate the fact that you have stayed with me this long. You was the first one outside of Tessie that took an interest in them, I met her in 1954 and we have been the best of friends every since. I will be posting on Facebook when the next one will be published . I hope you keep reading, Cherry

HI Tessie , I remember the Amish have a saying ,"Too soon old, too late smart", I guess that is really the truth.You can hardly believe how fast the years go by, it seems like most people feel that way anymore. I guess I had better get off of here for now .Love you and talk to you later love,cherry

This is beautiful! It's sad that the world has turned into a violent place.

Yes,Marie ,it is sad the world is in such a violent place. When we took God out of our lives that is what happened.What ever made man think that he could rule better than God ? Now we all have to suffer for the actions of ones who thought they were smarter than The Maker. When they appear before God on Judgment Day what can they say?

TIME PASSES QUICKLY- Yes , it does and too soon we are old or gone. A nice message, this one will make people think about how long we have left and hopefully, what to do with that time. Give that time to God! There is time to make Heaven one's home if that person is sincere and will ask God to forgive them and live according to God's will the rest of one's days. Great message. Tessie

I was just thinking about that Amish saying,"Too soon old, too late smart",I think that could mean the most of us . I wish we could just start out doing smart things but it does not seem to be that way.I know if I could I would change a lot of things i n the past , but in life we don't have do overs so we had better make sure we are right the first time.Thanks for your comment,Tessie love
