A time for everything
Read Ecclesiastes 3 1-11
This week our first daffodil flowered in the garden. We’ve been watching the buds shooting out of the soil for the last few weeks knowing that spring has nearly arrived. You may have noticed the lambs being born on farms nearby? And the weather is getting a little brighter and we can hopefully say goodbye to the frosty cold mornings.
What signs of spring have you seen this week?
Ecclesiastes 3 explains there is a time for everything and there is a season for every activity under the heavens.
Every spring flower that is ready to burst open, has been perfectly timed by God.
Every lamb that is waiting to be born, will be perfectly timed by God.
And when the lighter evenings come, the sun will go down, perfectly timed by God.
There has been a lot of change recently but spring is a change we gladly welcome.
Sometimes there are changes that don’t feel as good and are a little more tricky.
Can you think of a time when things have been hard or a change you had to make?
We know that Gods love will always stay rooted in our hearts when the good and bad changes come. God will never change and he will never leave your side. God says he has made everything beautiful in its time. God can take the worst seasons of life and make them into something beautiful. Isn’t that amazing?
Thank you God that there is a time for everything. There is a time for seeds to be planted and plants to grow. There is a time for sadness and also for joy. There is time to speak and there is time to listen.
Thank you God for spring and the beautiful burst of new life.
Thank you for always being the same and never leaving us. Your love endures forever.
