HE MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN HIS TIME

HE MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN HIS TIME

 

I woke up this morning with this blog on my heart. It was first written October 2019, and it is still relevant in so many of our lives today. Can you guess which season you are in? Enjoy!

 

This blog was taken from the Epilogue in my book, My Return Home to Innocence. To understand the painful journey of my love and me, you can purchase it on amazon.com.  

 We Will Walk Through Seasons in Our Lives

 

 

 

The great and wise King Solomon revealed some deep truths to us in Ecclesiastes. In Ecclesiastes 3:2-11 in the Amplified version states:

 

There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven

A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal; a time to tear 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 throw away stones and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost; a time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; a time to keep silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate; a time for war and a time for peace.
What profit is there for the worker from that in which he labors? 
10 I have seen the task which God has given to the sons of men with which to occupy themselves.

 

God Set Eternity in the Heart of Man

 11He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.

 


My journey continues with, “He Makes EVERYTHING Beautiful in His Time.” In 2007, the Lord gave me a dream, I would never forget. It was a very vivid dream; I can still recall the details as if I dreamed it yesterday. Tony (my husband) and I were sailing in a little boat along a river surrounded by the most vibrant green trees, the water was turquoise blue and crystal clear.

 

Suddenly, the water became turbulent and vicious; the waves overcame the little boat and it capsized. We were in the water struggling for our lives. But I knew how to swim. I looked for Tony to save him and I could not find him, so I swam to shore. I called for Tony several times, but he was nowhere to be found. The place I landed was remarkably familiar; I had been there before. When I came to the gate, the sign across the gate entry said, “New Jerusalem.” But I stood saddened because I had lost my love in the river and didn’t want to enjoy my beautiful home without him. But unexpectedly Tony amazingly surfaced from the depths of the river back to the top. I then swam into the river to bring him safely to shore. We were so grateful and excited to be together again after being separated by the angry and tumultuous river. Tony took me by my hand, and we walked through the beautiful gates of “New Jerusalem” together and experienced the wonders of the awestruck city together. Words could never describe what we saw and felt in that most glorious place! (I understand now, New Jerusalem is living in the abundant life In Christ.)

 

When I woke up from my dream, Papa laid these scriptures on my heart. Psalm 66:10-12 in the Amplified, reads:

 

10 For You have tested us, O God; You have refined us as silver is refined.
11 You brought us into the net; You laid a heavy burden [of servitude] on us.
12 You made men (charioteer) ride over our heads [in defeat]; We went through fire and through water,
Yet You brought us out into a [broad] place of abundance [to be refreshed].

 

Tony and I have come through deep and treacherous waters. For over 40 years we have journeyed through many seasons of life and marriage. Some were good and some were challenging, yet through them all, our Lord remained faithful to us. Because of my emotional instability caused by an undiagnosed mental illness, I ran away a lot. We were divorced in 1994 for eight months then in 2017 for over a year. Through all that we experienced when our souls were torn apart, our love for each other never changed. Matter of fact, our love grew stronger for each other over the years. When Tony and I remarried in 2018. We purchased a new home together here in Ponte Vedra and hope to spend the last days of our lives loving and caring for each other until death separates us, because we are forever IN HIM, we will be together as sister and brother In Christ FOREVER.

 


You may be facing a challenging season in your life right now or walking through a winter season of loss, pain, fear, and anxieties. The beautiful truth to rely on is the Lord is at work in you to do of His good pleasure as you turn inwardly to Him and give your season, pain, questions, frustrations, fears, and worries to Him. He is faithful even when we feel faithless.

 

Seasons will come and seasons will go but one thing I know for sure… our God never changes! He is forever faithful within us, no matter in fruitfulness or drought, laughter or grief, or abundance or lack. He is our strong tower, the righteous run into His arms and we are safe!

 


 

Enjoy Christ, Enjoy Life!
