A Time To . . .

Sunrise, noon, sunset, midnight.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
January, May, September,.
Winter, spring, summer, Autumn.
Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas.
These are the punctuation marks of time,
and what a marvelous mercy
that God divided light from darkness,
“and the evening and the morning were the first day”. . .

“For everything its season,
and for every activity under heaven in its time.”
wrote Qoholeth, the preacher of the book of Ecclesiastes.
For birth, death,
planting and uprooting,
killing and healing,
pulling down and building up.
Weeping and laughing,
mourning and dancing,
scattering stones and gathering them,
embracing and refraining,
seeking and losing,
keeping and throwing away,
tearing and mending.
There are times for silence and speech,
for love and hate,
for war and peace.

For the Christian,
time is transfigured
as we see it held in the love of God,
created by and for Jesus Christ,
to whom belongs the primacy
over all created things
and who existed before everything
and holds everything together.
Elisabeth Elliot

June 6, Today’s thoughts — A Time For

“What are we doing next, Mom”

Good Afternoon

And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.Exodus 2:23-24

God always hears, and He never forgets.
His silence does not mean that He is not listening, and is not planning.
Probably it means that the best time of deliverance has not come yet, and that He is patiently waiting for the moment to arrive when He may prove His love and His power.
Cromwell said to his soldiers just before a great battle: “Know ye soldiers all, that that God always comes to man’s help in the nick of time.”
Yes, God is always on time; never behind and never ahead. Happy the man who learns to wait as he prays, and never loses patience with God. MEN WHO PRAYED.

There is a set time for putting into the furnace,
and a set time for taking out of the furnace.
there is a time for pruning the branches of the vine,
and there is a time when the husbandman lays aside the pruning hook.
Let us wait His time, “He that believeth shall not make haste.”
God’s time is the best time.
But shall we come out the same as we went in?
Ah, no!
We “shall come forth as gold.”
We shall become purer vessels to hold the sweet-smelling incense of praise and prayer.
We shall become holy golden vessels for the Master’s use in time and in Eternity.
“When a great issue is in the balance and the path is obscure, wait;
but with that waiting shirk no the work that lieth before thee,
for in that task may be the solution of thy problem.”

Trust god for your day . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
