Let these short poems about God's timing encourage and inspire you. Do you trust God's timing? We can always be sure that His time is the perfect time. We sometimes demonstrate an impatience and in today's "instant" culture people find it hard to wait for God's perfect timing!



  1. 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!




  2. With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

  3. God's Time
    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.




  4. You also need to remember two things: One, God is never in a hurry. And two, God is never late.


  5. The Keeper
    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.
