I enjoy reading. It’s like food for my mind. Because I’ve read such a wide genre of books, there are several authors, styles and words that leave an impression.
However, the most influential in my personal life has been and continues to be God’s Word, the Holy Bible. While I have bookmarked so many favorite verses of scripture, one that I apply every day is found in Ecclesiastes 3:1. It says
To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.
Because of life experiences, especially the loss of my daughter, I am learning that God’s plans are beyond my understanding. This quote helps me remember that everything happens according to God’s timing, and according to His will.
