I think it is very important as we live from day to day to keep in mind that each day and our own personal space is filled with either positive or negative. How we fill that space will determine the quality of our lives and our eternal destination.

The Filling of Your Space

What would you have
To fill your space --
What would you want
As a reminder
Of God's holy grace --
What would you choose
To fill each hour --
What would you have
In life's drought
And in life's shower --
Would you seek
Goodness and joy --
Would you strive
For kindness and peace --
Would you make effort
Unforgiveness to release --
Would you seek freedom
As from human weakness
You press on toward
The mark --
The mark
Of the higher calling
And passage aboard
The ship of life eternal
Would you look forward
To embark --
Would you fill
Your space with honesty
And integrity beyond reproach
To give of yourself
And selfishness
To abate --
Would you fill your space
With understanding
As to your fellow-man
You relate --
Would you have moments
Of silence
And tones of sweet design --
Would you select
The filling of your space
To be lived in simply
Being kind --
Would you exercise
Your faith
As if this day was your last --
Would you look
Beyond yourself
And view the future
As redemption has resolved
Your sinful past --
Would you fill your space
With the pruity
Of God's perfect love --
Would you look beyond
This world as you seek
Salvation of your soul
And the opportunity
To abide eternally
In holiness above...

Remember when you
Fill your days
With goodness and holy ways
That you have created
The filling of your space
With many worthy days...
