A couple weeks ago, some friends of mine had to say goodbye to their dad after a heart attack; family and friends wept. This week I got to hold a tiny little newborn in my hands; family and friends rejoiced. Birth and death are parts of the cycle of life.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 1 There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven– 2 A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted. 3 A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear 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 throw stones and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing. 6 A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away. 7 A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak. 8 A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.
No matter the time in your life, though, God is in control - and God is good. So no matter the season in your life, take time today to thank him for being an incredible and amazing God!
