A Time For Everything

There is a time under the sun for everything! Just as there are seasons of mother nature; Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, there are also seasons to our lives. Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life. The Summer is a time to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Autumn is often associated with a sense of melancholy. The possibilities of summer are gone, and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Skies turn grey, and people turn inward, both physically and mentally. The winter usually is associated with death, there is a since of gloominess and hopelessness. Just as we adjust ourselves and prepare ourselves for the change of seasons. Lets also prepare for the seasons of our lives. As we experience the seasons of our lives we must keep in mind that the ebb and flow of life is inevitable. The key is to learn from life changes and continue to grow. Change represent growth, when we survive the changes we evolve and become stronger. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Ps 30:5


A Time for Everything


1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.



10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. 13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God.


-Ecclesiastes 3:1-13
