My Favorite Verse

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
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,
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...
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better fro men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil - this is the gift of God. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him."
-Ecclesiastes 3:1-14
I do believe I have finally found my favorite verse of the Bible. Today in church this verse was talked about and I smiled because I knew part of this verse was the caption for my profile picture on facebook. This verse just addresses so much. There is a time for everything, and God knows when He wants every single thing to happen. There is always a time for something to happen. Patience is something I sometimes struggle with. I get impatient and get caught up in the time limits of this world. I forget that God is timeless and does everything in His time.
Another aspect of this verse that I love is that God has "set eternity in the hearts of men" even though not everyone on this earth believes in Him. We all have something inside of us that wants to believe in something more, something powerful. The truth in that lies in the fact that we have minimal to no control over our lives and we need the comfort of someone watching out for us. Everything that happens down here in our lives will "endure forever". He knows what He is doing. Just food for thought. Thanks for reading.
