A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything, 
and a season for every 
activity under heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1
Nothing with God is haphazard or unplanned, surprising or unknown.  Each summer about this time, the monarch butterflies return to my yard to find their sweet nectar in the garden.  We've been fortunate to even capture caterpillars and provide them a safe home while they turn into their chrysalis.  Upon their arrival bursting forth from their cocoon, we gently place them outside where their life cycle begins once again.

This cycle isn't coincidental.  It is by God's design.  I take comfort knowing that my Creator has provided a time for everything in my life.  My life isn't haphazard either.  God is in control.  He holds me in the palm of his nail scared hands, and there I will rest... safe, loved and joyful.


Don't forget to stop back by tomorrow, as we'll be praying for Persecuted Christians in the country of Saudi Arabia.
