Your Time To Shine

What will you do when it’s your time to shine? Do you have all your words written down in your mind? Have you planned for the day when they call on your name? To lift up a soul and help hide someone’s shame? Is it easy for you to just stand up and speak? Anytime, anywhere – any day of the week? What about when you’re asked to give your point of view On the many events that take place in the news? If you’re asked to speak on the ‘good news’ of Christ To those who yet walk in the world, full of vice. Do you have rhyming words or a sweet song to sing? As you share the news of our Resurrected King? These questions I ask are to keep us in mind Of the Great Commission given to all mankind! That our King returns with Victory in His hand, And all will bow down with their knees in the sand Giving glory to God – Who truly loved us all Even though disobedience caused us to fall. Yet He gave all He had even Everlasting Life. He forgave us our sins – He took away our strife. His command said “go forth in the world, filled with love And be as wise as serpents – but gentle as doves”. So what will you do when it’s your time to shine? When God opens up Heaven and says “This child is Mine?”
