ďA time for everything.Ē

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,
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.

Those words look familiar? Does a song spring to mind? They are from Ecclesiastes 3. The first time I realized these were words from the Bible, I was like Ė wow, COOL, I always thought they were just a song.

Everything comes in Godís time. Not in our time. No matter how much we want something, or think we need something. God provides in His time. Nothing we can do here on Earth can change that.

Once we are able to get our fingers around that concept, life becomes much simpler and easier to take. Our prayers are heard, but they are answered in Godís time. I often envision our prayers going up to God on the same rays he sends down to us when the sun shines through a cloudy sky. The more rays, the more prayers are going up. Kind of like Godís telephone lines Ė with the exception that we never get a busy signal.

As I read and re-read each verse, so many thoughts are flooding to my mind. Times when I have been on one side and should have been on the other. Perhaps today is a day of reflection for me. Think of those regrets of the past and set them free. Nail them to the cross of Jesus and let them go. Everything comes to us in His time.

Rainbows. A promise made from God in Genesis 9 to all humanity and the earth after the flood. I remember vividly the first time I really comprehended what I was reading in the Bible about rainbows. I guess I always enjoyed them, but never really gave a thought as to where they came from. Scientifically I understood. Spiritually, I missed it. Until that day. I no longer look at rainbows the same way. They are now reminders to me of Godís love and His promise to His children.

A day of reflection for me. There is a time for everything.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
