MORNINGTIME 3453by Benjamin Munsell on April 17, 2020
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. All these individual things to do are fully under the Watchful Eye of the Lord God Almighty. And the main Heading is, "A time to Praise the Lord in the GOoD times, and a time to Praise the Lord in the hard times. No matter what's going on, from the early days in the Garden of Eden, to the death and destruction at the end of All Things, IT IS ALWAYS TIME TO PRAISE THE LORD. However you work out your Life and Salvation, as you deal with all these things going on in your Life, face them with an Attitude of Praise. With your Praise and Glory all going to the Lord, under that, everything else becomes manageable. As we each Grow in Christ and in Obedience to the Leading of the Holy Spirit, EVERYTHING that man, the world, and Satan himself throws at you becomes just another Thing to deal with. With Christ taking "the Load", and His Burden being light, fear falls away with the Joy and Peace of Christ Saturating your day and everything you do. All as unto the Lord. And the Future looks less and less scary everyday. No matter what's going on, everything falls into its own priority and becomes manageable, ALL TO THE PRAISE AND GLORY OF THE LORD. With Christ as number one, everything else starts to "fade away" in the distance. And that's a Wonderful Way to Eternally, Be Blessed.
