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)
