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 NIV
Father I pray to always be on Your time and not consumed by the past or the future, by what I had or what I desire, by what people say or the status quo of society.
Let my focus be only on You so that I can appreciate each day as it comes, for each millisecond of every day is a blessing.
Everything I gain is through Your planning, and everything I lose is through Your instruction I failed to remember. I must remember that I am a spiritual being in human form having a human experience. I am to realize through my daily walk my purpose, and surrender to You, Your Power, and Your Glory—to gain the greatest gift of all. Mold me Father. Amen.
Every day we are reminded that there is a reason for everything that happens, and that these things have happened before in the past–we are merely part of a cycle of repeated events until maybe just maybe we get it right.
Wars have occurred for thousands of years, and they will continue until we learn to love each other and live in peace. But as long as people see themselves equal to or greater than God, and benefit from the destruction of others, then we will never have peace.
We will continue to have crime until people realize that all they need comes from God; and when those that are blessed to possess an abundance of God’s gifts and wealth learn to share their blessings with the least of God’s children—we will stop seeing the “have not’s” robbing the “have’s” in society.
When we stop committing adultery, prostituting ourselves for money, cheating on the person we claim to love–and instead only seeking and nurturing the love we have at home—will we find peace and beauty internally and in the world. For those without love at home, gaining it first comes from your relationship with God and Jesus. Human love comes from God and instead of searching blindly, ask God to show you.
For God never intends for a person to hurt others, and if you know it would hurt someone to know you supposedly love them and another person romantically, then it’s obvious God isn’t part of that relationship.
Sneaking around isn’t God. Hurting someone isn’t God. Being self-consumed isn’t God. Nagging, whining, and complaining also isn’t God. Harmony, peace, joy, comfort, Love, and Light–now that is God!
We must stop fighting God and start fighting the “enemy” who tells you there is no God, or that God is conditional or hands-off. We must listen to and obey only one voice–God’s!
Enjoy your last day of the month and pray for the opportunity to embrace and be a blessing tomorrow.
Love you all,
