Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 20 March 2019


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 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 a 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. What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end
 (Ecclesiastes 3:1-11).

Today’s Morsel:  Today is the first day of Spring. We now leave the season of nature’s winter quietness, and we enter nature’s season of springtime liveliness.  Everything comes to life in this season.  Trees and flowers begin to bloom.  Birds begin to chirp, sing, and soar again.  Bears come out of hibernation.  Fawn are seen with the doe and buck.  Children are outside playing.  Anglers head to the rivers.  Bikers and runners are more prevalent.  All of creation seems to come alive again.  Solomon says, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”  There is a fitting time for everything to happen even in our life.  And God knows the season for it.  Learn to enjoy the seasons God has for you.  

Sing: He’s changing me, my Blessed Savior, I’m not the same person that I use to be. Well, it’s been slow going, but there’s a knowing that someday perfect I will be.

Thought For Today: “He hath made everything beautiful in his time.”
