Of these three things that remain - faith, hope and love, the greatest IS love'
Be Aware, Don't Let Him Pass By
On life's busy thoroughfare
We meet with Angels unawares
But are We too busy to listen or hear
Too busy to sense that God IS near
Too busy to stop and recognise
The grief that lies in Another's eyes
Too busy to offer to help or share
Too busy to sympathise or care
Too busy to do the good things We should
Telling Ourselves We would if We could...
But life is too swift and the pace is too great
And We dare not pause for We might be late
For Our next appointment which means so much
Are We willing to brush off the Saviour's touch
And We tell Ourselves there will come a day
We will have more time to pause on Our way
But, before We know it, life's sun has set
And We've passed the Saviour but never met
For hurrying along life's thoroughfare,We passed Him by and remained unawares
That within the very sight of Our eye
Unnoticed, the Son of God passed by.
Jesus, thank You for the many, many times that You did not pass Me by. Thank You for Your great love that makes Our time here a living joy. Help Us spend time in Your blessed presence; escaping out of the business of life to sit and talk with You. Through doing this, You instill in Us Your desire to reach out to Others while You take care of Us. Let Us not let opportunities to show You pass Us by. Thank You, loving Lord. Amen.
