"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven." NIV
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." KJV
When things are going fairly well and we feel life is quite good, we thank the Lord and feel blessed by Him. When trials and difficult things are coming into our lives, we become unsettled and ask God what He is doing, or what did we do wrong that we must suffer so. As long as we live on this earth, there will be good times and there will be bad times. We will stand on the mountain tops and bow low in the valleys. Only in heaven will we experience pure joy, peace, and blessing for all time and eternity.
Heavenly Father, help us to understand that we will go through good times and bad times in this world. Give us courage and grateful hearts. We ask in Jesus' name. Amen
