There are times to cultivate and create,

when you nurture your world and give birth to new ideas and ventures.

There are times of flourishing and abundance,

when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding.

And there are times of fruition,

when things come to an end.

They have reached their climax

            and must be harvested before they begin to fade.

And finally, of course,

            there are times that are cold,and cutting and empty,

            times when the spring of new beginnings seems like a distant dream.

Those rhythms in life are natural events.

They weave into one another as day follows night,

bringing,not messages of hope and fear,

but messages of how things are.

Ecclesiates 3:1-8, 14

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.

 

I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever:

nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it:

and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:14

I know that whatever God does, it endures forever;

nothing can be added to it nor anything taken from it.

And God does it so that men will [reverently] fear Him

[revere and worship Him, knowing that He is]. The Amplified Bible
