Sundayvotion: To Everything There’s a Season

I my last blog post, I talked about the possibility of not being able to manage my post schedules anymore due to a few things that needed to be handled and managed well. My passion in writing stays the same and I promise myself that I will continue to update my blog, time permitting. I’m happy I have that time now. I decided to go home early, with Nate and my mother-in-law, to be able to write a post on my blog. Thankfully, Nate also got so tired and decided to sleep on our way back home. So here I am, typing and maximizing the time that I have while my son is sleeping. :)



There are so many things that we wish we can do at the same time so we can finish them altogether, don’t we? Wow! If only that’s possible! Imagine cleaning the house, doing the laundry and the dishes all at the same time! That would be fantastic! You’ll have lots of time to rest and be with the people you love! That sounds really cool, isn’t it? Unfortunately though, that isn’t possible. :(

We live in a fast-paced world wherein we seem to always have to be in a hurry or we’ll be left behind. Parents like me can agree that in order for our sanity to remain, we need to be able to manage everything properly. By me saying that doesn’t mean I’m good at it. I don’t know, there are really just so many things to do, but we have so little time! In fact, my friends know that I cannot organize my schedule properly. That’s not a good indication of someone who manages everything around her properly. I’m trying my best to work on that now! :D

Even before I started writing this post, I knew I wanted to share about the verse in the Bible, in Ecclesiastes chapter 3, about a time for everything. This chapter is one of the verses that I really love to read. It reminds me that life has its own timing. It has its own season. Allow me to share that verse to you:

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, 11 KJV
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which 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 together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, 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.
He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

I don’t know what you are experiencing right now – you may be in your happy times, or you could be down due to a problem you are currently experiencing, I’m not sure. Before I end this post, I want to inform you that whatever you might be going through right now, always remember that it can just be a part of building your life: a process you need to go through in order to be better. The season you may be in right now, may not be as pleasurable as you want it to be, but remember that to everything that we do – there’s always a SEASON…And God makes everything beautiful in His own special time!

Have a blessed Sunday and I hope you are doing fine! :)

  1. This is my favorite chapter in Ecclesiastes, yes there is time for everything, season for everything and purpose or reason why it is happening. We just need to have faith in Him.

    2. Moms love multi-tasking but there are times that we feel exhausted too. What works for me is writing my things to do, icross-out ko siya yung tapos na. Unahin ko lang yung urgent but if not, it can wait.

  4. True. For me, This is my season for motherhood. My kids are still young and dependent on me. Too many sacrifices on my part, things I don't do anymore, but it's my season to be a mother and wife first before anything else. :) It took me some time to actually swallow everything.:)

    1. Sometimes, acceptance doesn't happen gradually. It took time for me to realize everything too. We're on the same boat now sis, on the motherhood season, it's not easy but sure is a joyful time. ♥

  5. I agree sis. Everything has its own time like God will never give us anything we can't handle. We just have to believe and have faith in Him. Everything will fall in its own place, and everything will be resolved in time.

  6. Hello gaw, I know you can do it. One step at the time. When Lemuel is gone right now I always do the multitasking. But don't push yourself na tapusin agad. isa lang ang katawan natin. This passage remind us that everything has its own time. Be happy wag ma stress :)

  7. This is a great reminder for me right now. I'm a multitasker and I couldn't help but try to do so many things at the same time even when I had just given birth 6 weeks ago. It left me feeling exhausted and depressed. I realized that I had to take things slow and let go of some things first because there's a proper time for everything. :)

    1. Mahirap lalo pag multitasker, sis! Sanay na e. But yes, take it slow sis, lalo at kapapanganak pa lang. :) Your baby's cutiepatootie! ♥

  8. This is such a beautiful verse. Sa totoo lang sis, pareho tayo. I wanted to give time for my passion but there are also things that I have to give my focus and effort onto it. Minsan feeling ko ang daming kaagaw ng writing time ko. Pero iniisip ko na lang, things will get better after some time. God has plans naman. And His plans are always way better than our plans. :)
