What Is On Your Bucket List?
What is on your bucket list
Of things you'd like to do?
Before you pass from this old world
And heaven welcomes you
Do you want to share your faith
And lead someone to God?
What keeps you from reaching out
The fear they'll think you're odd?
Have you reached your hand out
To someone who's in need?
Or does something always hold you back...
Something known as greed!
Can make you feel so good
Is it on your bucket list
To give the way you should?
What about forgiveness?
Are there people on your list?
Those who need forgiveness...
But you constantly resist
What about commitment?
To others and to Him...
Are you afraid to surrender?
Do you live life on a whim?
Do you find that you are faithful?
Or do you let things slide?
Sometimes the lack of faithfulness
Can be the result of pride
Do you practice kindness?
To your children and your mate?
Or does selfishness detour you...
Always making others wait
Would the things on your bucket list...
Show what's really in your heart?
Would God be disappointed with that list
Right from the start?
Why not crumple it...And toss it...
And start your list anew
And when you write your bucket list
Think of what God wants from you!
Or better yet...let Him write it
No bucket list could match His plans
He has thrills, and chills, and amazements
All gifts from His loving hands!
