Cloudburst: What a Day!

To think that God puts us in charge of our time! Now that’s a thought for poetry.

It’s a “faithful and wise servant” who performs his tasks “at the proper time” Mt 24.45. Wisdom is recognizing the opportunities that appear in our days, Gl 6.10, and knowing how to make the best use of time, because the days are evil, Ep 5.15-17. This wisdom in the use of time is often directed toward winning those outside of Christ, Cl 4.5.

And, in the use of time, God has put every tool and resource at our disposal, Ep 1.3. We have the means and the motive. Let us also have the urgency to do what needs to be done today, 2Co 6.2, and meet “pressing needs” Tt 3.14.

We could use this poem every day, because they all are filled with the blessings of God. But some days you just seem to perceive it more sharply than on other days. Yesterday was one of those days for me.

The style of this one is more of what I have in mind for UPLift, but since this work came along at the time for Cloudburst, we send it off to the email list.

Sorry, the poem is short, so there’s no teaser to share today.
