We mourn due to Covid-19. But have you noticed some really wonderful kindness that comes our way due to us pulling together with care and love for each other?
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
As we journey through each cycle of life, we can experience more fully how God cares for us.
Don't allow the disappointments to distract you from communing with Him and reaching out to others.
The secret to peace with God is to pause, and discover the opportunities He is allowing for you to know Him more, and deepen your trust.
This passage reminds us that the seasons of life will come and go, and there will be an end.
As medieval Persian poets wrote: "This too shall pass."
