I have been around those this year who have experienced many life changes, and especially death and heartache. I believe that if we understand by faith, that there’s a BIGGER PICTURE than what we currently see, we accept fully what comes our way and are able to cope and move on.
My experience has been that God does not always show man that BIG PICTURE yet leads him step by step, as children are led, thus keeping him in a continual state of dependence on Him and His guidance; trusting, nevertheless.
I love the definition of the word “timing” because it shows us that there is a time and a purpose for ALL things.
There’s an opportune time; a right time for everything on the earth. A right time for birth and another for death, a right time to plant and another to reap, a right time to kill and another to heal. There is a right time to destroy and another to construct, a right time to cry and another to laugh. A right time to lament and another to cheer, a right time to make love and another to abstain, a right time to embrace and another to part. A right time to search and another to count your losses, a right time to hold on and another to let go. There is a right time to rip out and another to mend, a time to shut up and another to speak up. A time to love and another to hate. A time to wage war and another to make peace. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (The Message Translation)
“Whether in weakness or strength, sweetness or bitterness, distraction, pain, weariness, uncertainty or blessing; none should delay our course – even for a moment“ (Jeanne Guyon).
