A Time To Give

Through the Lord we witness to others by what he has us do. We all have his special way for us. I find strength and joy in what gifts he has given me. I spend time with people to listen and be there. Just to show them through me the love of God. It is very powerful and I pray daily that I can give more and more to his purpose. If my life wasn’t busy, I would think of myself. That is a very wrong option. For Jesus came to serve not to be served, as we are to also do. I have a life that I must live to the fullest. What was, isn’t. The Lord is the comforter of the brokenhearted. The comfort you give others is given back abundantly. The Lord sets opportunities in our path. Sometimes we have to wait for a time to get to know someone better. He knows the right time. The Holy Spirit truly lives within each true Christian. The truth is with us. The Lord hears us and we hear him. We belong to him forever.

Everything Has It’s 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.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Not only does God fix standards and withhold or dispense satisfaction but he also appoints “seasons” and “times.” Earthly pursuits are good in their proper place and time, but unprofitable when pursued as the chief goal.

I know whatever

God does,

It shall be forever.

Nothing can be added to

it,

And nothing taken away from

it.

God does it, that men

should fear before

Him.

That which has already

been,

And what is to be has

already been;

and God requires an account of what is

past.

Ecclesiastes 3:14-15

Acknowledging God’s enduring and perfect work becomes grounds for reverence, worship and meaning. Apart from God, man’s works are pitifully inadequate. The theme, “the fear of God.”
