I love our Southbrook family!
As with any family, we go through seasons of tremendous blessing and seasons of hurt. Doesn’t Ecclesiastes say as much?
A Time for Everything
1 For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
2 A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
6 A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
Life is a short journey (compared with eternity) and it’s filled with ever changing seasons.
Today my heart was moved as I read through the prayer requests and prayed for members of our Southbrook family going through each season.
Some are rejoicing with wonderful news. Some are weeping as they grieve the loss of a loved one or face uncertainty with a frightening diagnosis from their doctor. Others are praising God for providing a job while still more are beseeching Him for employment.
I’m praying for you, Southbrook Family. Rejoicing with those who rejoice and morning with those who weep.
And I’m not alone.
Know that you are loved!
