There is a Season for Everything

Ecclesiastes 3:1 Tells us that there is a time for everything. There is a time for every event under heaven. The financial climate has changed in America. Everywhere I go I hear people talking about it. There is not a day that goes by that I do not hear about people losing their jobs, their homes, their retirement accounts. To be sure it is a a Time for reflection. Have you noticed the weather changing? It is Time for Fall to begin again, right on time, dependable, consistant, because the seasons are controlled by God. If we focus on all the negative we will miss the beauty of the season, of each day. Don't miss the opportunity to tell someone you love them today. It may not make the Dow rise but it will help their spirits rise and, it will make you feel better too. Don't miss the chance to hug your child they don't know what's going on in the world markets nor do they care. They want to spend some time with you. Read a story to them tonight, say their night night prayers with them. It will not improve your portfolio but you might make an investment that will pay great dividends down the line. Don't focus on the bad so much that we miss the good. Pray more than you worry and things will look different to you. If you are reading this devotion and enjoying the beauty of this picture instead of watching Money Market returns you have made a good choice of how you use your time. You can not change yesterday or predict tomorrow so why not make the most of the only time you really have ....Today. Will you devote your time to Worry or Wonder, Pessimism or Prayer. I think you will make this a great day. Your off to a really good start. Please feel free to share your thoughts, concerns, prayer requests with me by clicking the comment tab.

  1. I love the change of the seasons. Not so much, the change in our lives. We have no control over either, but we only worry about our lives. If not for prayer and hope in God, I don't we could make it through.

  2. Thank you for your blog. "There if a season for everything" was what I needed to read. In our stressful times we need to have faith that our God is with us and will lead us through. Enjoy the beauty of the season and the hugs of a child. That alone will ease our worries if we believe in our Lord Jesus Christ
