change is a scary thing. it can be dropped on you at any time and you are left wondering what has gone wrong.
unexpected. merciless. confronting.
on receiving the news of these changes, there is no choice left for us but to accept them as they really are…cold and raw.
death of a friend. resigning of a 7-year-long pastor.
what has gone wrong? oh, how things can happen in a blink of an eye! or perhaps it’s been boiling for a while?
one can never know what to expect with life. time does its own things and never waits on anyone. we are slipping away every second. though the number of our age is increasing, the number of our years is decreasing.
how are we spending our time on earth for ourselves and our beloved?
i regretted losing touch with my beloved coach. almost 10 years i never talked to him. now i could only wish time would give me another opportunity to redo the history.
i regretted not praying much for my pastor. for 7 years, i took his presence for granted. what troubles…what pain he’d gone through. now all i can do is to accept his resignation.
time is of the essence. for a split second, a life was taken…a decision was made…and i’m left wondering what has gone wrong.
time takes place everyday. change is as much a part of our life as breathing.
are we ready to handle it? what is the true purpose of our living here on earth? if you find yourself taking more than 5 seconds to answer these 2 questions, perhaps it’s time for you to seriously go find the answer…the Truth.
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Man’s fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return.
ecclesiastes 3:1-8, 19-20
