It's been a long time!

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. -- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 It's been over a year since my last posting. I hadn't realized it had been that long; but then time never seems to go at the pace we think it should. Either it's flying by quicker than we can keep up or it's going so slow that we feel like nothing is being accomplished. Relationships are a lot like that as well. Sometimes they feel stagnant, like nothing is changing, nothing is improving, nothing is moving forward. Yet other times, we feel like we're in a whirlwind of emotions, both good and bad, up and down and we wonder when the ride is going to stop. It is moments like that, that make me appreciate my relationship with the Lord. He is so consistent, so faithful, and His word says He's the same yesterday, today and forever. He is the wheel in the middle of the wind, my anchor in the midst of any storm, my rock and my salvation when all my world seems to be falling apart all around me. It is God that keeps me on the right "time" schedule because He reminds me that He is greater than time. In fact He is the inventor of time so He is more than able to help me make sense of the minutes that seem to take days, and the years that seem to flash by in a moment. God provides me with the stability I need to function in this world, and I've learned the only way I can lean on that stability is if I truly surrender to Him and trust Him with all that is going on with me. God has used this past year to remind me of who He is, who He can be, and who He wants to be in my life. And I wouldn't be surprised if He has used this time to tell you something just as important, probably even more so, during this past year. As we continue to move forward in 2010, as winter begins to ease into spring, and life blooms once again, let's all take the time to thank God and use our time to enjoy all that He has given us. God has a vision for you...let's find out what it is. In Christ, SistaV
