Sunday Scripture- A Time For Everything


Ecclesiastes 3:1-8{ESV}

 "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
2 a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace."

 I love these verses and that fact that they remind me that there is a time for everything under the sun.

I kinda tweak these and use them on my kids :))  I often tell them there is a time to play and a time to to do chores, playing comes after the chores. And it's true there is a time to work and a time to play.  But I often need that reminder as much as they do.

I came across this on my 1000 gifts app the other day Wherever you are be fully thereChildren grow up so fast and we aren't promised tomorrow. So when they want my attention I'm convicted to be 'fully there' playing. Because there is a time to work, time to rest, time to pray...just not when my kids want to play!

 I love Sundays because they are a day not to run around and get one more thing done, but just to rest and be 'fully there' with those you love.

 Have a restful Sunday! What are some ways you spend your Sunday's?

 I'm about to go play with the kiddos and then take a nap, maybe I'll be able to convince one of them to snuggle with me! ha!

  1. I love these scriptures too. It helps me to put my life into His perspective. After church on Sundays, I like to get in my jammies and hang out on the couch most of the day, although I've been known to sneak in a load of laundry or two! Thanks for linking up today!

  2. Me too! I love PJ day around our house and the kids don't seem to mind it either! Thanks for the chance to link up I really enjoy reading your posts. It' so hard not to work when we run around so much the other days it doesn't feel natural does it to sit around and NOT do anything. But when I do I really feel refreshed and ready for whatever the week is planning to throw at me.
    Thanks for stopping over!


Your Turn...
