Have you ever experienced a time when your life comes apart? What do you do when you experience “out of control” symptoms?
Ever experienced a series of unexplainable events? What did you do?
You and I live in a physical and spiritual world that exists simultaneously. A place created with a sense of time,a stream of life, and an eternal process that does not end here.
This sounds a little “out there” unless you have an eternal God perspective to life. Life is full of what I call “eternal contradictions.” These apparent contradictions exist between eternity and creation… or the unexplainable connections between the two. The whole truth is… you and I are finite beings created by an infinite God.
This is where the scripture gives us light. What do you think about this passage?
“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what 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; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, 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.
What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God.
If you were God, how would you make a human, then speak to him or her in such a way that he or she can choose to relate to you in a relationship? And how do you give them a free choice in this process and maintain full control?
