Ecclesiastes 3:1-5 (New International Version)
A Time for Everything
“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.”
I always say that patience is not my virtue.
When I was younger, I was full of ambitions, full of dreams and sooo full of myself. More often than not, I would find ways to get what I want in life, even if that means I need to stomp on the rights of those people around me.
Because of this, they learned to hide from me the things which they think I should not know and eventually it lead to fall out. I had to be stuck in a ‘shelf’ for me to learn the repurcussions of my actions.
This pandemic has brought me to a lot of time to contemplate about those seasons in my life.
I realized that GOD was slowly answering my prayers in his own time and his own ways. A lot of my secret prayers were answered. I also learned that when he says No – it’s actually for my own good, that he wants me to wait for his perfect timing and not force things to happen in undue time.
As they say, if things were really meant to be, then It was really meant to do so in the first place.
