Today is Labor Day and it also happens to be my birthday. I was thinking about what I should write about this week and
God gave me something to cover both of those subjects!
If you are familiar with Ecclesiastes, then you are probably familiar with the highs and lows that Solomon went through.
Solomon asked God for wisdom and was given everything! Unimaginable riches, wisdom in all matters and anything at all
that he wanted. And yet, it all became meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
I think I can safely say that I am in the last quarter of my life. We all have seasons, a season and time for every purpose under heaven.
There have been good seasons for me and some not so good, due to my own actions. I pray every day that, because of the bad seasons,
I have gained just a little bit of wisdom and not just chasing the wind! I thank God every day that I have been redeemed, despite my poor choices!
What season are you in? Do you need to make some adjustments or even move on to another season? Please pray for me and I will continue
to pray for each of you. We need unity and we need community!
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-14 – KJV)
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
11 He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
