ok guys.. not much new today.. just a lotta learning and a lot of tying things up from yesterday. for one, theres a chapter thats kinda near and dear at the moment. ecclesiastes 3.
Everything Has Its Time
Everything on earth has its own time and its own season.
There is a time for birth and death, planting and reaping,
for killing and healing, destroying and building,
for crying and laughing, weeping and dancing,
for throwing stones and gathering stones, embracing and parting.
There is a time for finding and losing, keeping and giving,
for tearing and sewing, listening and speaking.
There is also a time for love and hate, for war and peace.

What God Has Given Us To Do
What do we gain by all of our hard work? I have seen what difficult things God demands of us. God makes everything happen at the right time. Yet none of us can ever fully understand all he has done, and he puts questions in our minds about the past and the future. I know the best thing we can do is to always enjoy life, because God's gift to us is the happiness we get from our food and drink and from the work we do. Everything God has done will last forever; nothing he does can ever be changed. God has done all this, so that we will worship him.

Everything that happens has happened before, and all that will be has already been-- God does everything over and over again.

The Future Is Known Only to God
Everywhere on earth I saw violence and injustice instead of fairness and justice. So I told myself that God has set a time and a place for everything. He will judge everyone, both the wicked and the good. I know that God is testing us to show us that we are merely animals. Like animals we breathe and die, and we are no better off than they are. It just doesn't make sense. All living creatures go to the same place. We are made from earth, and we return to the earth. Who really knows if our spirits go up and the spirits of animals go down into the earth? We were meant to enjoy our work, and that's the best thing we can do. We can never know the future.
i was also listening to a song. a song that i usually wouldnt have listened to.. and yet.. something told me to listen to it.. it was on my play list... (funny i also changed my play list today, for no apparently reason).. and i was about to take this one song off... cuz i dun really love it or anything... so yeah.. when i was JUST about to delete it, some of the lyrics caught my attention and i decided to listen... it's called "God Will Make A Way" .. i know.. funny name eh? (haha.. canadian eh? haha...dun ask if you dun get it.. its kinda a silly thinger) neways, here are IT's lyrics.. and i can send you the song too.. just let me know..
God will make a way,
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me.

He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way, He will make a way.

By a roadway in the wilderness, He'll lead me
And rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His Word will still remain
He will do something new today.

God will make a way,
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me.

He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way, He will make a way

God Is The Answer

When you are tired & discouraged from fruitless efforts...God knows how hard you have tried.
When you've cried so long & your heart is in anguish...God has counted your tears.
If you feel that your life is on hold & time has passed you by...God is waiting with you.
When you're lonely & your friends are too busy even for a phone call...God is by your side.
When you think you've tried everything & don't know where to turn...God has a solution.
When nothing makes sense & you are confused or ...God has the answer.
If suddenly your outlook is brighter & you find traces of hope... God has whispered to you.
When things are going well & you have much to be thankful for...God has blessed you.
When something joyful happens & you are filled with awe...God has smiled upon you.
When you have a purpose to fulfill & a dream to follow...God has opened your eyes & called you by name.
Remember that wherever you are or whatever you are facing...God Knows!
