Ecclesiastes 3 New International Version (NIV)A Time for Everything3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
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 from embracing,
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.
PURPOSE TIME ~
To give thanks to God for all things
Yes, I said all things because through the hard times, we can grow and learn. Through the hard times, God remains the same. I can see how my hard times of life have changed me into a better person. I feel compassion for others, because I've been in hard places. I find forgiveness to others because I have been forgiven by God. God never reminds us of our mistakes of life but gives us another chance. I love that second chances happen but even more chances. I want to do things right and live what I teach others. Kindness goes so much further than you might realize in life. There is always time for kindness, love, caring, sharing and keeping God number one in our lives. It is through him, that we live and have grace.
I hope you will purpose time today in calling someone, texting them, sending an email or just keeping in touch. We do not know what someone goes through in life, but God does. He cares and wants us to stay connected to others he has put into our lives. I pray today for you, your family land friends. I know that in hard times, we need to feel God. Just know, he never leaves. Press in by music, Bible and connecting with someone today. Happy New Day!
