Let the Good Times and the Bad Times Roll

Ecclesiastes 3: 3-8

3 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:  2) a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3) a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4) a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5) a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 6) a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7) a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8) a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

Going through my divorce was the most difficult time in my life. However, I would do it all again… well, most of it, if it would put me back in the position I am now, because those lessons are what catapulted me to my destiny. To be honest, the experience was the missing piece to my life’s purpose. I honestly believe without that experience, I would still be roaming, wondering who I am, what my purpose is and feeling like there must be more to life. I believe there will always be one difficult event in life that helps you discover who you are. Often, the most difficult time in our lives is where we find ourselves and our calling. There is more to life, but just know there’s a time, place, and reason for everything. We ALL have (to) go through the refining and pruning process in-order to get the reward. We can all have a story of redemption, but we must be content in the season we’re in now, trusting GOD and His process. There’s a saying “deep contentment only comes when you’re right with GOD.” I took this to mean that no matter what season you’re in good or bad, happy or sad choose to be content. Paul said, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances”, and we must take on this same mindset as we continue to journey through the ebbs and flows of life as believers.
