There is a Season

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (ESV)

For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die;

a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;

a time to kill, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

a time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

a time to seek, and a time to lose;

a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

a time to tear, and a time to sew;

a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

a time to love, and a time to hate;

Use your time wisely. Know when it’s time to cry and when it is time to get busy. Remember that a season doesn’t last forever; regardless if it’s good or bad. Our lives cycle like the earth, and all that it holds. Nothing remains the same. Well, except for God.

In all seasons, be grateful. ♥️

  1. I think Ecclesiastes is one of my favorite books. It’s where I believe Solomon is allowed to be personable. He’s still as biblical as ever but we see humanity from God’s perspective and our own. I guess it’s why it’s kind of a sad book.
