Is There A Time For Everything?
I ask because it seems as if we never have enough. Yet, when you speak to many, they are so bored with life, and love, and work, and so on and so on......
We take time and string it along as if it will always be there, waiting on us. We even burden others with taking up there time. We are late for appointments and events, we cancel at the last minute for no real justifiable reason, or we just do not even show up. We don't care about others' time.
We sit for hours on end, being completely unproductive, yet as soon as a task is asked of us, we find ourselves busy and not having enough time for it.
We awake each day as if it's owed to us, and then the one day when told that our days are limited we find we haven't had enough time to live.
We talk, text, and tweet, an endless amount of hours daily and end up with a mountain of ignorance, drama and foolishness.
We go through life, living someone else's dream, bearing someone else's burdens, and never give ourselves time to be who we want to be.
We give all our time, our being, ours souls..... to relationships that give none back.
The answer to the question is yes. Yes, we do have enough time, for it is written, and I believe it to be true:
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war and a time of peace." Ecclesiates 3:1-8
The problem is not that we do not have enough, the problem is that we do not manage that in which we have.
