Ecclesiastes 3 New King James Version (NKJV)

Everything Has Its Time

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck 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;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw 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;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.

So many seasons in our lives are represented in this passage from Ecclesiastes.  We are all continually passing back and forth between them, constantly experiencing changes. Some are good, and some are not so good; but ALL are an opportunity for praise.  ALL seasons provide an opportunity to witness and share the hope we have in Christ that so many others do not have.  We may not enjoy every changing season, but we can have joy in His presence no matter what time of life we may be facing. 

Psalm 16:11 New King James Version (NKJV)

11 You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

@PromisesPromises! What a blessing to wake up to Ecclesiastes 3 and hear in my mind the very familiar melody!  Thank you so much, Promises!  …and between all these “times for” are the words “turn, turn, turn.”  This got me to thinking about how many times we, as Christians, are prompted by the Holy Spirit to turn away from our sins - - to repent and to ask forgiveness .

  Heyyyyy…Let’s turn down this path called Memory Lane. :)
