Everything Has Its Season

As a child, I was taught that everything had a season. There is a time and purpose for every thing we do. There is a reason for everything that we say. Everything in life has a cause and effect. I believe that GOD puts you through a series of test to see whether or not you can endure that obstacle. It is up to whether you can go through the obstacles with your head held high or waver in disbelief.

Ecclesiastics
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up
that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.


One thing that we can be sure of in life is that everyone has a time to live and everyone has a time to die. This is the cycle of life. As I look at the above, I now remember that everything and everyone has their time. Everyone goes through there obstacles in life. What you do during that tribulation and how you react after that tribulation effects your soul and your lifeline.

There is a time of love, a time to hate, a time of war, and a time of peace. There is a time to cast away and a time to gather together. But most importantly, there is a time to speak and a time to keep silence. In the stillness and silence, you are allowed to hear listen objectively because there is peace even in the silence.

So as you go through your obstacles, people will try to bring you down. As you go through your obstacles, stones will be thrown at you. As you go through your obstacles, people will talk about behind your back or maybe to your face. As you go through your obstacles, people will say things that try to bring you down to make themselves feel better. As you go through your obstacles, you may stumble. As you go through your obstacles, you may fall...

BUT once you stand, GET THROUGH YOUR OBSTACLES, you will understand the stones that was cast at you. You will remember the people who talked about you or maybe to your face. You will remember yourself stumbling and you picking yourself back up. You will remember that GOD was right there all along. You will remember the battle made you stronger.

Most importantly, when people try to bring you down, you will smile to yourself and think that today may be your time to get through your obstacles. However, tomorrow will be the time when you have gotten through your obstacles. Thus, next week will be their season.

EVERYTHING has a season. It is how you deal with that particular season that will show your true character, your true self, and your true soul. There is only two people that you get your grade from. You and the LORD!
