New Seasons ~~A Time for Everything

As I enter a new season in my life with all of my children grown and moved on, the words of Ecclesiastes ring in my mind. For there is a time and a season for all things.  And each new “season”  in our lives is for a specific reason with new periods of growth. Though change is not easy for most (including myself), these new seasons can bring about new adventures and new blessings as we go forth with an expectation of good to come… for only God knows the future that He has planned. We just need to trust Him.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-14
A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.  I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.

  1. So true. At this point in my life I see that I have let seasons pass without partaking, but now am grateful I didn’t because at the time I didn’t feel as I do now. Not sure that makes sense, but God is good and love is always the goal. Happy Thanksgiving!
