Kohelet Three: Timing

“Everything has an appointed season, and there is a time for every matter under the heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1).” This verse opens a particularly iconic chapter, which contains numerous examples of the powerful idea of everything, good and bad, having a role in the unfolding of our lives, and of the world. It’s comforting to realize that everything truly does have its season, so even when things are hard, and today I had a few sadnesses and disappointments, ultimately it comes back to the idea of this being the reality for now, and not for always. It’s so easy to get caught up in the now, either positive or negative, and to think that today is always. But everything has its time and place in our lives, and I want to work on being more accepting of that cyclical reality as I continue to grow into the person I want to be.
