There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 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 from embracing, 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.
Wow this really hits the spot for me, I came to mind for me as I am again feeling like I am going through a new season in my life. I am coming up on the anniversary of two very different, but strangely similar deaths this month and in the next month. I am going through, also the hope and anticipation of some much needed success in the area of acknowledgement and financial gain for Rising Star Ministries. I am adjusting to the various stage changes that my kids are going through, and the balance that takes to foster those milestones and enjoy them for what they are.
The scripture has antonyms and at times, okay all the time, I would like to choose which one I like better at the time. But the truth is, God knows which one is best for us at that time. He understands why and the path that it will lead to. So as it was a time to die for some that I loved so dearly and of course didn’t want that time to be then, so it was. I am hoping that it is a time to uproot, a time to heal, to build, to laugh, to dance, to mend, love and peace. These are the seasons I want now, and only God will know if it is truly that time now.
