God’s Times

 

To everything there is a season,

A time to live, and a time to die;

A time to laugh and a time to cry.

For every man, there is an appropriate time

for all things;

A time to tear down and a time to build,

A time to be silent and a time to speak.

God has made all things appropriate

to its time;

Some men live without discovering

The wonders that God has done

for them.

Let us recognize that whatever God does

will endure forever;

That now what is, has already been,

What will happen, is already happening;

And God restores what would

Otherwise be displaced.

This then, is the time to care;

Standing tall and ready to share,

It is the time to seek a place of peace;

Blessed are they who understand God’s times.

(Inspired by Eccl. 3:1-8)
