Time Belongs To God
Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2006
Time somehow eludes you, it alters best intentions,
It passes by while you are unawares;
It doesn’t give you notice so you might watch your step;
You’re not too sure for what you should prepare.
Mankind is oh, so busy, an empire to obtain,
The thought of wealth is foremost in his mind.
He concentrates his efforts regardless of all else,
Prosperity and fame he has to find.
Meanwhile, each moment passes, the hours turn to years,
Then what accomplishments will leave their mark?
You never noticed nature, the fragrance of the rose,
Or seen the trees in colour in the park.
You scurried through the morning, you rushed throughout the day,
You set a pace that many thought too high.
And in your haste and progress, achievement came your way,
But joys of love and nature passed you by.
Then suddenly it happened – your work days have expired,
Retirement is set to come with age,
Your routine is disrupted, you haven’t much to do,
But life is offering you a brand-new page.
Yes, time to smell the roses, to learn to slow your pace,
To find out why the Lord has blessed you so,
To realize the beauty of living on God’s earth,
To hear the gentle, rippling waters flow.
The early song of robins, the mourning dove’s soft coos,
The rising of the sun when dawn draws nigh,
The mist above the waters, the dew drops on the grass
The wonder of a brand-new baby’s cry.
Take note while you’re still able, rejoice in what you see,
Stand still and hear God speaking to your soul,
Be quick to give Him glory, be still and hear His voice,
Remember, time is His; He’s in control!
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
God's time is different than ours
The Lord who made the moon and the stars
Has time which we don't understand
All things were created on his command.
With God a day is like a thousand years
So as we pray about our fears
Trust in Him and His timing too
He knows better than we do.
And a thousand years are like a day
That is hard to understand, you say
He sees the present and the future
Which makes His timing such a treasure.
John McLeod, © 1980
The keeper at the gate of time
Waits patiently and ever
Keeps his vigil silently
His trust he will not sever
Nor will condemn the actions
When the soul strives unaware
But always will embrace in Love
And bless with silent prayer.
