I Changed My Mind

I’m in such a hurry now —
Such a stressful day!
Too busy to read God’s Word,
Too busy to pray.

Later . . . I will meditate,
Close my eyes, then snooze;
Meanwhile, my computer calls,
I must read the news.

But . . . I do remember . . .

I remember bedtime prayer
when I was a kid;
I read my Bible, then prayed,
that was what I did.

Can I find the LORD today?
See priorities?
Confess, talking from my heart?
He’s the one I’ll please. 

This is my decision now —
What I need to do;
I will put Him first today, 
For now,  goodbye to you.
