A God Watch


I'm always in a hurry,
an agenda on my mind...
tap my foot in worry...
don't want to lag behind.

The ticking of my clock is
a sound I cant ignore...
I often get impatient
and discouraged all the more.

Sometimes I forget that
all comes in God's own time.
He is the Master Planner
and His timing is sublime.

He designed the blueprints.
His scheduling's exact...
The execution of His plan
With precision is intact.

His plan for me is perfect
this I need understand...
but I'm in such a hurry,
often try to force His Hand.

His timing is exquisite,
though rarely can I see...
more perfect is His docket
than if left up to me.

Too bad I cannot purchase
a God Watch at the store...
so I could synchronize it
to the Master Planner's score.

Life would be more simple
and stress would melt away
if I but had a God Watch
in my daily dossier.

Perfection in this poet's eyes. You have mastered thoughts and imagery in this poem that many should heed. Time, so precious is wasted with rushing through days and not stopping to pause and give of our own time to seek out pleasurable moments. Voted up!

AWESOME, my friend! That just says it all! Don't we all wish to have a God watch ....but then I guess we wouldn't appreciate our trials or learn from them! Love this one!

I will think twice about it the next time I react to the discovery that I forgot to wear my watch.Your hub has given me a new perspective of watching "the time".
