We Have Limited Time, Live the Right Choices! by Rev. Dr. Fred M. Lassonde

We Have Limited Time, Live the Right Choices! by Rev. Dr. Fred M. Lassonde

As the Old Saying goes "Here today and gone tomorrow!"

Ever wonder about your limited time here on Earth?

Believe it for History shows man dies after much sorrow

Each breath is numbered right from our Birth!

This World itself is passing away and will be made anew

That though is not a guarantee for the likes of me and you

It would be wise to number our days and to live soberly

Stop the selfishness, live pleasing to God, live properly

Your life style shows who you represent, what does yours show?

Are you living for God our are you Hell bent, where will you go?

Our short time in this world is not to be lived for self but for God

We are to bring Him Glory, that path is narrow but to Hell it is broad

Most people will never know Heaven because of what they choose

Limited time here on Earth, just what will you decide to do?

The wise will choose Jesus and they will win and not ever loose

The foolish will live for self, now which one are you?

Yes! We have a limited number of days and will choose one or the other

The time is coming when we all will answer for what we have done

The Sheep to the One Way and the Goats will go to another

Right here and right now is good time to decide which One?

For when gone and your number is up it will be all said and done

You would have chosen by how you live and what you have done

You would have either chosen the Lord Jesus or the Evil one

You can say one thing and yet live another, live for God or just fun?

Choose this day who you will serve, choose who you will represent

For we are Ambassadors here on Earth, either for God or the Devil

Your Lifestyle choices say a lot about whether or not your Hell bent

When your gone, your gone, will you Live for God or for Evil?

You cannot straddle the fence you choose One or the other

For Jesus said be hot or cold or He will spit you out sister and brother!

Now the Lord God is not slack concerning His promises and His rewards

You will get what you deserve if you do not live as if the Lords

For your heart is manifested as you make your choices here on Earth

You can say one thing and live another and not change from birth

For your lifestyle will show who you actually are no matter what you declare

So have conviction for Jesus, Live a life for Him, when the roll is called be there!
