“Take time to be holy, take time with your Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on his Word.
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak.
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.”
“Take time to be holy, the world rushes on.
Spend much time in secret with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like Him you will be;
Your friends who are watching His likeness will see.”
“Take time to be holy, let Him be your guide,
And run not before Him, whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow, still follow your Lord,
And, looking to Jesus, still trust in his word.”
*Written by William D. Longstaff (1822-1894)

“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” Jude 21
Throughout the day I think of Christ and how much I love Him and need him, how much my soul longs for Him. There are times when I would love to be deserted on a island with nothing but my Bible.
There are so many distractions in my life.
However, we always make time for the things we love.
For instance, I love to read, so I read.
I love photography, so I take pictures.
I love my family, so I spend time with them.
I love Christ, so . . . . . . . . .oh, that I might love Him more.
“For to me, to live is CHRIST” Philippians 1:21
