A Time for Everything

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
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,
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."
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
Following these verses is my most favorite thing about the whole chapter. It says in verse 11, "He has made everything beautiful in its time."

It seems like a simple concept, but I found encouragement in this tonight. Starting a quarter is truly a season of completely new activities. As I look back upon the beauty of last quarter...a time of mending, weeping, giving up, silence, and healing...I praise the Lord for making those times beautiful. I am also excited for this new season, hopefully one of building, embracing, laughing, dancing and peace. I do not know what this season holds, but I cling to the hope that God will make it all beautiful!
