Blessed Be Your Name

Life teaches us that there is a time for everything, and this wisdom is found in scripture too.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

 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.

We don't have control over the timing of some of life's biggest happenings, and sometimes the timing defies understanding. But here's a great image for how followers of Christ can live in response to that reality.



Blessed be your name, Lord. Whether I find myself in a time to plant or a time to uproot, a time to tear down or a time to build up, a time to weep or a time to laugh, a time to mourn or a time to me remember that you are my portion. At all times and in all places, may my heart seek you out, and may you turn your face toward me in mercy and in love. (Psalm 119: 57-58) Amen.
