The Movement Of Life's Clock

Updated on February 19, 2014

Sometimes the minutes of the clock

Move way too fast, that I can not

Conceive of every little detail

That has occured.

Sometimes the hours of the clock

Move too slow, and I find

That lonely part of my life

Just lingering, dangling,

Holding me down in the dark.

Those lovely slow moments of my life

Where I am frozen,

Looking back at my past

Wondering on into the future

Hoping those hours would disappear.

Those swift passing moments depart

Hoping that my tasks be complete.

My goals accomplished

And perhaps my dreams do come true.

My search for

Perfect Timing of Life's clock

Is not in my hands

But of God's will

Only in constant trust in Him

Will the clock of God's Timing

Be in perfect rhythm.

How to Make Usage Of Time Spiritually

So many different ways to interpret time. Some take their good ol' time doing what is needed to be done. Some are anxious and rushing through their tasks so to get more time to do other things. Then there are those who are obsessed with the past; reliving it over and over in their minds, so to come up with a better outcome, or solution to anything that is unresolved; or perhaps the moment of a wonderful time was not long enough and one relives througn the events, especially when something in the current time is not so wonderful. And there are those who try to predict the future, thus trying to be in control of what will happen to an individual based on the past characteristics of a lifetime before the current one. Then, finally, there are the ones who are trying to prepare for the End of Times, in which no one really can predict when this earthly existence will disappear or even be devastated by disaster.

No matter how a person starts or ends the day, the clock will keep on ticking. King Solomon in the Old Testament wrote in the Book of Ecclesiastes, in Chapter3, verses one through eight:

"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal;a time to break down and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a ttime to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace."

Then it goes on to say, in Ecclesiastes 3, verse 11:

"He [God] hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."

So, based on the scripture in the book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 3, time is controlled by the Lord God, and He knows what is going on and what is going to go on. What is in our hearts can predict the outcome of what we do with our actions in time.

Thus, King Solomon makes an excellent conclusion;

In the book of Ecclesiates, chapter 3, verse 14, he says,

"I know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him."

(All verses of the Bible are from the King James Version, Touch Bible.)

A great song about time

      So true. A good deal of what happens in our lives depends on ourselves and faith in God.

      Amen, sister, Amen! Love the quotes from Solomon, or the Preacher as he's called in the King James Version. And you know, I'm really glad that God is in control because I certainly wouldn't want to be!

      Good job and voted up.

      Loved your poem on the clock. We need to live in the moment, since that is the only real TIME. The past or future do not exist. Voted beautiful

      Learning to live in the moment is God's time. Living in the past or trying to predict the future is a waste of valuable and productive time. Your remarkable poem says it all. A perfect description of my own life right now. Brilliant!

      Votes up, awesome, useful and sharing with others. How can I thank you? ~ Audrey
