Time for Everything….. It is a double edged sword at this point

There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
    a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3,

This is my favorite, I turn to this  in times of trouble, or times of well, times, of what I am going through.   I know that each of my readers have their own troubles, and mine are probably not as great as any one else’s.  The point is, we all have things going on in our lives that are truly mind numbing and bringing us to our knees.

Somehow, in all of this, I have found that I am at a sort of peace with things, such as they are.   I am Blessed by a bunch of different aspects of my life.    While I feel scared at certain things, I am comforted by other things.  It is a double edged sword so to speak.

There is a time for everything, and I am learning the lessons.  Life is a journey, lesson’s to be learned everyday.  You never quit learning, but it also means you have to look for the lessons at the same time.

I’ve learned a bunch… I’m still learning.  They are not always happy lessons, sometimes they hurt you so bad you can’t see straight.  But somehow, you make it through them and become stronger in the process.

This strength though?   While I appreciate that I am strong, and can probably lift a car about now, I’m not questioning anything.  If I need to be stronger so be it.  But I am getting a little tired about now.   But whatever it is…I can do this….
