There is a Season

bird-in-rainstorm-bw

Let the rain come; the Lord will send the sun

He sends one thing on which we can rely

When grief is nigh, look always for the Son

 

Winter storms crush; He leaves us not undone

Look toward the spring; seek glimpses of blue sky

Let the rain come; the Lord will send the sun

 

Cast out your fear; let His love unburden,

Allow His wings gently to lift you high

When grief is nigh, look always for the Son

 

Have faith; Father’s embrace is most certain

He is aching to show you He’s nearby

Let the rain come; the Lord will send the sun

 

Immanuel abides in you; it’s done

Love and grace brings freedom, truth through His eyes

When grief is nigh, look always for the Son

 

Listen for the birds, Love’s call to God’s children

They call to sing His everlasting love

Let the rain come; the Lord will send the sun

When grief is nigh, look always for the Son

 

Everything has its own time, and a season

for every activity on earth:

A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, a time to collect the harvest;
A time to kill, a time to heal;
a time to tear down, a time to build up;
A time to cry, a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, a time to dance;
A time to make love, a time abstain;
a time to embrace, a time to part;
A time to search, a time to give up as lost;
a time to hold on, a time to let go;
A time to tear apart, a time to bind together;
a time to be silent, a time to speak up;
A time to love, a time to hate;
a time to go to war, a time to make peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

    1. Thanks, Mel. Sometimes on Saturday, when things seem so outlandishly crazy, when there is nothing to say, all I can do is shake my head, raise my arms to our Father and turn to my heart to my Lord and say, “Help us, Jesus.” ❤

  2. One of the most precious lessons God has shown me in the past few years is that here on earth everything lasts for but a season.
