Poem ~ Sometime

This was posted on Google+ by a friend who gave me permission to share it.  I thought it was really good!  Very convicting!
“I’ll do that sometime —just not now”, I tell myself. Sometime comes…sometimes goes…“Aren’t you supposed to be doing something?” My conscience whispers to me. I try to brush him off, but he’s right nonetheless. I did say I’d do it…sometime. I ‘helplessly’ tell him, “I can’t do it now. I’m busy. I’ll do it sometime… Quiet, but firm was his response, “I know, that’s what you said last time”, was his reply. “That’s not a concern of yours, but it’s mine!” I yell at him.  “Okay”,  He whispered. “just remember who you belong to—Jesus.” My heart sank when he said that. He went further, “When people look at you they see a reflection of   Jesus. What reflection do you want them to see: a selfish, self-centered, prideful person?” I knew he was right. Sometime comes…sometime goes…and only sometimes does something happen when I say, “I’ll do that…sometime.”
