Time

The moon waxes and wanes again,
The tide comes in and then descends,
There is a time for everything.

The mountains rise and sleep again,
The sun will climb and then descend,
There is a time for everything.

Time, time, there is a time,
Time, time, there is a time,

A time to cry and grieve through pain,
A time to laugh and joy to sing,
There is a time…
Time for everything.

Children will grow and move away,
We must account for all our days,
There is a time for everything.

At the right time, Christ would descend,
On the cross He took on our sin,
Then He rose, yes, He rose again…

There is a time He’ll come again,
The Risen Lord will soon descend,
There is a time when time will end.

Behind the lines

Another year has come (2013) and we do not know what it will bring. We don’t even know what tomorrow will bring, but the Sovereign certainly does. He is outside of time, He created time and will be there when time ends (as we know and understand it).

Time is such a precious thing, yet we are often stressed by it. Going everywhere  in a rush is the norm in our culture today. We’re in such a rush that “as we are going” we have very little time to serve and minister to others.

Take some time to enjoy the moon, stars, mountains and sunshine. Spend quality time with your children, parents, and family. Make time for God’s Word and prayer and consider the spiritual and physical needs of others. Consider He’s coming back. Will He find us so doing?

As you go, minister to others and share the love of Christ.

It’s His time. Be a good steward of it. Redeem the time…

[11] He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. [12] I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; [13] also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.
(Ecclesiastes 3:11-13 ESV)
