A time to linger,
And a time to hasten.
A time to embrace a season
As well as a time to end a season.
There are times to carry,
Times to be carried.
Times to offer comfort
And times to receive comfort.
I am He who orders your steps and directs your way.
Come to Me.
Rest in Me.
Place your cares on Me.
Do not be afraid to go through, or step over.
Do not hesitate to linger, nor to hasten.
Embrace that which you need to embrace.
Release that which it is time to release.
Carry that which is yours to carry.
Remember to allow Me to carry you at times.
Receive the comfort that I offer.
Share the comfort you receive with others.
Live in “this moment” fully alive.
Knowing that the “next moment” will come.
Trusting that “I AM” is Emmanuel,
In every moment of your life.
Verses to Ponder:
To Everything There is a Season
1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
