‘He need not fear a bad report, for his heart is unshaken, since he trusts in the LORD.’
- Sometimes bad news is part of life, but we do not need to fear it. - Our confidence in God means that our hearts do not need to be shaken. - Trusting in the Lord allows us to believe that He will take care of things. - Let your heart and mind rest secure in the knowledge that the Lord has your back.
Prayer: Lord, I will not be shaken, even as I see and hear of things that are taking place. My hope is not in the ‘plans of men’, but my hope is in You. I will trust and not be afraid. Amen.

The Right Time
March 4, 2019
We all go through certain time frames in our lives. I like to compare them to seasons. Seasons come and go. I find that just when I have had too much of the heat of summer, winter begins to arrive and when I have had enough of the cold, spring is in the air. When we are in a season we may think it will never end. But there is a right time and season for everything.
A RIGHT TIME FOR EVERYTHING
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 There is a right time for everything: A time to be born; A time to die; A time to plant; A time to harvest; A time to kill; A time to heal; A time to destroy; A time to rebuild; A time to cry; A time to laugh; A time to grieve; A time to dance; A time for scattering stones; A time for gathering stones; A time to hug; A time not to hug; A time to find; A time to lose; A time for keeping; A time for throwing away; A time to tear; A time to repair; A time to be quiet; A time to speak up; A time for loving; A time for hating; A time for war; A time for peace.
This scripture has always amazed me. As Christians we find it hard to believe that these negatives should even happen, let alone that there would be a right time for them. An example: we may think that there is never a right time for war, but yet this scripture tells us that there is a time for war. Perhaps you are going through a season of one of these ‘negatives’. These can be difficult times but let’s allow God to help us through each stage or season of life that we may pass through.
