Rushing traffic, flashing lights,
Crowded side walks, what a sight!
People people every where
Hurrying, scurrying here and there.
Busy, busy all the day
Never time to stop and pray.
We rarely greet our fellow man
For that may interrupt our plan.
What is it that we're living for?
We fill our days, but there must be more.
As I stand and watch this harried scene.
People all together, yet alone it seems.
Each person on their shoulders bear
Their own burden, their own care.
If only we could switch our gears,
From high to low as God endears-
Then our relationships would surely grow,
As we let life run with the Spirit's flow.
Our focus then would be on God,
Blocking off the road that Satan trod's.
For he's the one roaming back and forth,
Making busyness seem the source of worth.
Yet if we take the time to see...
Our life in Christ is value's key.
So let's slow down and cherish time.
Wasting it would be a crime.
God gives life and takes away,
Make time for Jesus everyday.
