Ecclesiastes 3
A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

I haven’t thought about this verse for a long time. Just as I thought life was starting to get better, everything came to a standstill. And today as I was thinking about everything that was going on in my life, these verses popped in my head. It’s another shift.

He always has a way of bringing me back to the place where he wants me to be, to pull my focus away from the things I’m doing and remind me of who I am.

I think this is where I am at now. Might just be a perfect time to write songs.
