Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 says” 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; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sow; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Saturday began the season change of “time“ we all had to set our clocks back one hour. Which means we get that extra hour of sleep. For many folks they look at the fall back of time as a season to make changes in their lives. Rather it be a personal change, family, or a collective change.
But what we neglect to realize is that God tells us that change is going to happen regardless of the clock change of times. Making positive changes is a good thing, but here in this chapter of Ecclesiastes we see that these changes are not something that we normal would consider a life time change.
When we read these verses we see a time of joy and sadness, and yet we aren’t comfortable with these changes of seasons, but yet God is telling us that we will experience these things for they are our growing seasons in Christ.
I challenge you today before you sit down with your pen and paper to jot down the changes that you are wanting to do, please consider the changes that God wants to do in your life.
