Daily Readings — Cycles of Life!

Day 2174: Remember, He is God and we are not . . .

Scripture: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; Ecclesiastes 3:1, 2a

Thoughts/questions: In a very short time yesterday I witnessed some of life’s major events. While headed to my grandson’s birthday party, I drove by a cemetery in which someone was being buried. At the party, there was a 10 day old baby and a number of children. Then I left the party early so that I could officiate a wedding.

The joy of  new life; the sorrow of death; and then various celebrations in between! Pretty much what our earthly existence consists of. Yes, to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven!

All of us are in some type of life’s seasons. Each has its own set of good and bad. What’s your focus within your current ‘time’ – God’s blessings or the struggles and challenges this particular stage has to offer? Both are there for the choosing.

Choose wisely!

Suggested prayer: Living God of the universe, Help me to see all of the good You have for me during this time in my life . . .
