A Time for Everything1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
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,
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.
When i read the passage, it didn't connect with my issues.Then , i decided to map out my thoughts and jot down on paper. Then. it made sense!!
There is time for everything!!! Eventhough i am not doing what i wish to do, eventhough i am just so lost now, eventhough i feel my life is wasting away, it doesn't matter!
I don't have to be the hero of the world. I just need to open my eyes and see the need around me, and live out the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,goodness,faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in all my dealings with people: colleagues, friends, ex-colleagues, family, strangers, the bus driver, shop keeper, cashier at Sainsbury etc.
Yes!!! I was in cloud 9 ! God spoke to me! I went away fulfilled.
