A Poem for Thought

 Given Not Earned

To this in life I have certainty learned
As God opened my eyes and soul to know
Spiritual things are given, not earned

As to the soul they flow and do show
To this in life I have certainty learned
I've learned its in His timing they grow
Spiritual things are given, not earned

Reference of Thoughts: Sometimes its hard to wait for things of a spiritual nature when it seems one has been waiting a long time; including, things prayed for as prayers are spiritual. But one can not hurry God and try to make them happen, as they will happen in His timing as spiritual things are given, not earned. 

Consider Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8 (NKJV):

"To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born,
 And a time to die
A time to plant,
 And a time to pluck what 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 stones,
 And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
 And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
 And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
 And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
 And a time to sew;
A time to keep silent,
 And a time to speak;
A time to love,
 And a time to hate;
A time of war,
 And a time of peace.
