I asked God, “Why not now?”
For things I want to get,
I want to rush things somehow,
See them happen in my head.
I wondered why ever so slow?
Of things I always dream,
I hurry to move and go,
But I never reach the brim.
I want this and I want that,
Right now if I can choose,
But God answers with a “but”,
Because He knew I can loose.
For every plan and every goal,
Every event in life’s journey,
Every moment, time, and all,
God has ordained in harmony.
Nothing is done in a whim,
Nothing is out of God’s will,
Not in moods that spring,
Nor in any appeal or feel.
Every thing has its own timing,
Not too fast, not too slow,
Regardless how we are viewing,
He moves time like winds that blow.
When you can hardly understand,
Why things move in a different time,
Why God seems slow to lend a hand,
Don’t you worry, it is just fine.
God’s clock never breaks down,
He is always on time, you’ll see,
He is never late so don’t frown,
He is wise and He knows perfectly.
Your clock tells the hour you like,
But time it with God’s clock,
Then the hurdles you can fight,
No grave disappointment or shock.
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow,
Are all the same in God’s timeline,
For every hardship and every sorrow,
He sets a time to win and shine.
