Everything happens for a reason

15 Feb


Everything happens for a reason.

Do you believe in these words?  Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about this and the familiar words from Ecclesiastes 3:

“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 sew; 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.”

I take comfort in these words knowing that my God is greater than my plans and His timing is perfect.  Laugh at the confusion with me, live for (and in) the moment, and rest assured – everything happens for a reason.
