There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
(Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV))
I knew this day would come. My oldest has graduated college and my youngest is packing to go away to work for the summer while the one who has the luck of being called the middle child sits comfortably in his surroundings at home.
Have you ever felt sad and happy at the same time?
I am sure that you have. I am saddened by the changes in life, yet I am happy that each is finding there own way and that each claim Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.
I am feeling the aches and pains of bad knees. I am feeling sadness that my parents are getting older, yet at the same time I am glad that they are getting older.
Everything in life changes. We are only here for a fleeting moment in time and then we are memories in the hearts and minds of those that we have loved.
What time and season are you in at this moment?
Are you looking forward to a graduation, or a wedding, or a new birth? Are you comfortable in your daily routine? Are you enjoying your family and friends? Cherish every moment that you have, for there will never be another moment like that one again.
Don’t get so busy trying to provide for life that you forget to live? Don’t forget to say I love you!
Think back on your life so far. Do you realize that Jesus was with you through all of the times and the seasons? He is there now. He will be there tomorrow!
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
(Hebrews 13:8 (NIV))
The times and seasons may change, but Jesus is always with you!
