Time

As I write this post, my hands are trembling. I can barely think straight. A dear friend of mine passed away in 2009. Today, 12/2 is her birthday. I received the reminder via Facebook. I visited her Facebook Page just to “visit” and reminisce when I found a post that she made on 11/28/2009. You see, my friend was a fellow poet. She sent me a Facebook post that read that she had some new poetry that she wanted to share with me. Because the message wasn’t “liked,” I don’t think I ever saw her post. Less than a month after making her post, my friend transitioned to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I don’t know what became of her poems.

This was a stark reminder to me that we do not have an infinite amount of time to walk this earth. We all have a purpose – a reason why we have been planted on this earth. My prayer is that all of us complete our purpose before we are called Home. A poem that I have written comes to mind that I’m sharing with you below. This poem is from my upcoming book, The Altar Will Alter You, which is coming out in December 2015.

God’s Time

There was a time
When I took the time
To listen to the birds chirping in the morning.
I loved to hear them praising the Lord in a way that only they can praise Him.

There was a time
When I took the time
To go for a walk early in the morning
It was just me and the Lord and His Kingdom that He created just for us.

There was a time
When I took the time
To count the stars in the clear evening sky
To watch an airplane flying in the distance and wonder where it was headed
To smell the sweet evening air
And feel the cool evening breeze as it tickled my eyelashes

There was a time
When I took the time
To enjoy and marvel over the wonders of the earth
That God has freely given all of us

There was a time
When I took the time
But…. Now… I have… No Time.

John 9:4 – “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”
