I have sincerely been asking God to grant me wisdom to deal with life situations that we face from day to day. Today has been very trying. We can see things that we have worked on for a lifetime crumble with a word spoken by others. I don’t like days like this and I have to wonder how it is playing into the wonderful plan in my life. I feel like whining and blogging is the next best place to vent.
This afternoon I began thinking of the scripture in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
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 weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance…
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.
So, today I don’t have to have all the answers, I don’t have to be strong and I can cry if I want. Even God, in all His Glory thinks it is okay to take time to vent yourself, cry if you need to cry and even be silent. Take the time to heal your emotions and renew your spirit. We will then have a time to laugh, a time plan and a time to exit.
