TIME CHANGES US ~
Over time we learn things and can grow into a bitter person or a bitter person.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 King James Version (KJV)
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Time for everything under the sun, the moon and heavens. Learning to live in peace and the grace that God gives each of us. We must extend that grace to others that live a little different than us or even believe different than us. The bible speaks of the peacemakers and it's a job making peace with some people. Lets be real, getting along with some people can be hard.
LIVE IN TODAY ~
Look around you today and see the blessings you have in life. So much to be thankful for and we often think of the things we do not have. Chaining our mindset to positive and going about sharing good news of Jesus is important. I am not asking you to be a super christian, just asking you to share Jesus.
A TIME FOR ALL THINGS ~
Balance your time my friends and it's important to not over book yourself. A healthy balance in all areas of life. I wasn't going to write about this today, but I felt that time is important. I take time every morning to write you some encouraging words for 2-3 minutes. A good start to a day and knowing that your life makes a difference. You are important and your example is important. You might be the only Jesus someone can see in life. Not everybody knows his story of forgiveness or newness of life. A kind word, a smile or a open door to a stranger. Kindness in our lives is valuable to others and to ourselves. Be kind to yourself!
Purpose this a good day. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
