Faithful in All Seasons



Seasons come and seasons go.
Jesus stays the same--
Full of deeper truths to know.
Praise his holy name.

When our lives wind down to fall
He's still faithful, true.
He'll return, the King of all,
Making all things new.

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (Revelation 21:5 ESV)

Heeding God's Clock


Lord, your time is always right.
In your time, seeds bear good fruit.
My time looks so very good--
Only looks. It's not so great.
In my time, seeds sprout forth weeds,
Bringing death instead of life.

Father, may I heed your clock--
Quick to go when you say go,
Firm to stay when you say stay.
I've been stubborn, wanting my own time,
Wanting my own private clock.
Smash my clock so I'll hear yours.


My times are in your hand...." (Psalm 31:15)
