Delays - a short inspirational poem about the inconvenience of delays in the light of God's agenda
Sometimes there may be road blocks along the way
The demanding pace of life we live
With the myriads of opportunities, options and advancements now open to us living in the 21st Century, comes an unrelenting and demanding pace of life. Schedules full up. Little time for spontaneity or unplanned interruptions. Often unforeseen opportunities and challenges that present themselves inevitably put further pressure on our time and commitments ... and as for delays ... there is most likely zero tolerance, and at best, annoyance, frustration and yet more pressure.
God, however, is on a different time schedule and has a higher agenda ... namely, His perfect plans and purpose for our life.
This short poem is about seeing more from His higher eternal perspective.
The annoyance of delays and interruptions!
In the midst of our busy important lives
We haven't got time for delays
Yet God in His wisdom and grace and love
Allows them to teach us His ways
For although we live in an instant world
God's timing is different to ours
He is working in you
Things Eternal and true
Which the power of His Spirit endows
