Music Monday: "Little More Time to Love"

Music Monday: "Little More Time to Love"
Many of my diligent readers and close friends know that Steven Curtis Chapman is one of my very favorite Christian artists. I relate to him as a married father and Christian. I have nearly all of his albums and listen to them often. If hard pressed to tell a favorite song, it would probably be "Cinderella" by SCC. I have blogged many of his songs, and a few from his latest CD, "A Glorious Unfolding". This one I can relate to as I am growing older, wonder where the lines on my face have come from, and look forward to going "Home" to heaven and dining in the great Feast at heaven's table. We're waiting for that day, but we have more time on earth to live and to love. Who are we showing God's love to today?



A Little More Time To Love : by Steven Curtis Chapman

There’s a little boy looking at me in the mirror
He’s asking where the time has gone
Was it here just long enough to draw these lines on my face?
Well I’m not sure I’m much wiser
But some things are clearer
And it’s getting clear that I’m not here for long
So what am I to do with my few minutes here in this place?
And we hear the world sigh with its aches and its pains
We see the grass wither and watch flowers fade

But oh, there’s a day that is coming
When everything will be new
And oh, God will dry every tear
And everything sad will be made untrue
And oh, it’s gonna be a celebration
All of creation longs for
And while we’re waiting for that day to come
We’ve got a little more time to love

There are little ones hungry for love of a family
So many hungry for bread
On the left and the right surrounded by the last and the least
And just down the street and just across the table
Hungry hearts are waiting to be fed
‘Cause deep in our soul we’re all longing to be at The Feast
But until we sit down where there’s more than enough
Let us give as we’ve been given and love as we’ve been loved

There’s a day that is coming
When all the last will be first
Every orphan will be home
And all will be filled who hunger and thirst
It’s gonna be a celebration
All of creation longs for
And while we’re waiting for that day to come
We’ve got a little more time

To do justly and love mercy
And show the love we’ve been shown
For we can only be the hands and feet of Jesus ‘til
He leads us home
He will lead us home

There’s a day that is coming
A day that never will end
There in the light of His glory
Everything broken will be whole again
And this will be the celebration
All of creation longs for
And while we’re waiting for that day to come
We’ve got a little more time to love
Just a little more time to love
We’ve got just a little more time to love
Just a little more time to love

Micah 6:8
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Romans 8:18-25

 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.  For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.  For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope  that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.  Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groaninwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.  For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
