I need a time out
A time away from me
A time away from the rat race
Away from the competition of who is the bigger rat, perhaps the fatter one too.
I need the referree to sound the whistle
Half-time people!!! Half-time
Time out from the game of life
Time out from being a mother, a sister, a helper
I wish there was a substitute
One to take over when I could not go on any more
One to stand in my shoes
One to keep the ball rolling while I catch some breath
While I rest my soul
Re-energize my body
Time out for me!
For the Lord has called me out of my sin
Jesus blew the whistle at the cross when He shed the blood for me
Undeserved but loved
Sinful yet redeemed
Forgotten yet remembered
Because my Lord called a time out!!
A time out on my life
For my life match was doomed
Doomed to hell
But He found it fit to blow the whistle
I stand a winner, because He is
For when He blew the whistle
For when God said: Time out!
I ceased, He became
Everyone requires a time out
A time away from selfish living
A time away from ourselves
For salvation is putting your greed away
Taking up the cost of discipleship
Living as per God's will
The match maybe yours
But God is still the referee.
TIME OUT! Do not be caught off guard when the groom comes for His church
Be found at His presence, doing kingdom business.
Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?
