God Connect: Daily Renewing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

A Time for Everything

on July 20, 2013

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

Many times we reflect back on influential people in our lives.  We think of the wonderful times we had with them and how we miss the memories of days gone by.  We think of the wonderful attributes they had that were passed along to our lives today.  If we’re not careful, we’ll begin to question why God took them away from us.

Our human minds cannot always see or comprehend God’s purposes.  I think that is why He reminds us in Ecclesiastes 3:1 that there is a time for every purpose.  He also reminds us in Ecclesiastes 3:11 that he hath made everything beautiful in his time.

We may never know or understand God’s timing or His purposes.  We will undoubtedly face situations in this life that we don’t understand.  Just remember in times of trial and heartache that God has made everything perfect in His own time.  He knows what we’re going through and He’s there for us.

Today I challenge you to reflect back on someone you know that was influential in your life.  Don’t question God on why He took them from you, but thank Him for the wonderful times you had with them and for their wonderful character that shaped who you are today.

“As for God, his way is perfect: The word of the Lord is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in him.” Psalm 18:30
