Today by Sarah M
The other day I was in an argument
And I didn’t handle it as I should
I made mistakes with my actions
My words brought nothing good
I was so caught up with frustration
That I didn’t stop to think
But later, when I had calmed down…
I realized I my mistakes
I recognized what I had done wrong
…but I thought of something else, too
What if Jesus had come right then
What if Jesus had stepped in the room?
What if he had returned at last
Only to find me arguing
What if he had come back for me
Only to find me abandoning?
What if he found me like I was right then
…like what I am right now…
Absorbed in this world and forgetting his truth
Forgetting to keep my vows
What if my Lord came today
And didn’t find me waiting
What if my God came back today
And didn’t find me anticipating?
What if my heart stopped beating today
And I knelt before his Throne
Would I be proud of how I had lived
The last day in my earthly home?
Oh friends, I beg you – don’t forget!
Your time could come any day
Live as you want your God to find you
Don’t forget and drift astray
Jesus, help me remember
The treasure I have in You
Help me to look beyond this earth
Bind my heart and keep me true
For if I should die before I wake,
Or if you should come for me
I want to be found longing for you…
Living for you, my King
