a time for patience
and for some rest
a time to let go
and let God
do whatís best

a time for endurance
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound
in His grace

a time for serenity
in the midst of the buzz
a time to find harmony
as God
only does

a time to listen
and to be still
a time to wait
for Godís
perfect will

a time for calmness
when composure is gone
a time for quietness
so our hearts to . . . God
may be drawn

a time to trust
without any fear
a time for the Lord
to draw and bring
us near

a time for the Spirit
to lead from above
a time to rest
and abide
in His love

a time for contentment
in lifeís fast pace
a time for God
to show us
His amazing grace

a time for silence
and an open heart
a time for God only
letting nothing
keep us apart

a time to lie down
in pastures green
a time to be protected
and find shelter
under His wing

Good job with this poem - I especially enjoyed "a time for serenity/in the midst of the buzz".
You might want to add capitalization and punctuation to make this poem flow better.
The repetition was well used, it added to the poem without being too much.
Keep up the good work!
