For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NLT)
You know, so often we get caught up in our own timing don't we? We are frustrated when something happens too soon or too late for us to have control over the situation, and we forget who's timing really matters! But it says right here in scripture that there is in fact a time for everything! I urge you this morning, press into the timing of God! He formed your heart, surely He knows how to care for it, how to nurture it, and how to make it stronger! We get so buried in our own timing that we stop believing that God even has a timing, and we get discouraged, but take heart! The time for joy is coming! The time to dance has returned! And if you follow Gods perfect timing, just imagine what He has in store for you when the time comes!
