She shall rejoice in time to come...
I wish that I could take credit for this amazing picture, but it was taken from Photobucket. I used to hear this verse and think of people- that people are made beautiful in their time (with gifts and talents and dreams fulfilled.) Now, I apply it also to things and circumstances. There is a time for everything. And, God will make beautiful and perfect that which we are concerned about. (Psalm 138:8)
I have seen the burden God has laid on men. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.
How wonderful that God has put eternity in each heart with a curiosity and longing for life beyond death and a desire to live for more than the mundane and the temporal. How precious that God made the way for eternal, abundant, and fulfilling life here and now through Christ. Please stop by Amy Deane's blog and consider joining WFW!
