internal not external

Yesterday was Father’s Day and the kids did a skit showing everything from how I discipline, do weddings, give Christmas gifts etc. It was well planned and rehearsed.

The needs: As I have shared with you we are in need of house parents so please pray for that need.

Also Josue will be assuming leadership on July 11thand I ask that you could consider helping him financially on a monthly basis.

A team from Georgia arrived.

Father’s Day skit

 

Ecclesiastes 3:2 says, “A time to give birth and a time to die”. God appoints our birthday as well as the date of our funeral. The length of our life is set by God. We are born and we rapidly run to our death.

In 3:2-8 God gives us 14 positive and 14 negatives as He is demonstrating our seasons of life. He desires that we worship Him in all seasons. It is easy to do in the positive moments of our lives and it is difficult in the negative times. If you only worship Him and thank Him in the good times you are missing both His will in your life and your own opportunity to honor Him.

Solomon concludes with 3:8 “A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace”. Peace will not come to the earth until the Prince of Peace returns.

3:9 is a repeat of 1:3, “What profit has a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun?”  3:11 repeats 3:1 “everything”. “To everything there is a season” and “He has made everything beautiful in His time”.

We look at the external whereas God looks at the internal. We focus on the wrong things. We see the painful process but He sees the finished product. Accept that you do not know everything and live your life to please God.
