Ecclesiastes 3:1,2 to everything there is a season ansd a time for everypurpose under the heavens;a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot.
Everything has a time or a season.Hopelessness is the result of demanding complete control over the time G-d has allowed and the results of our labor in that time. HOPE enters when we realize that we have to trust G-d with the time He has given us and let Him decide what we are to do and at what point in our lives. If we do this, we will spare ourselves a lot of frustration and wasted time. I say this because many times we have set our goals and time lines without asking Him what He wants done and when. But G-d did not construct the world haphazardly; chances and opportunities are offered at various periods within our lives because only He knows what we can and cannot do and at what spiritual stage we are developed : or in many cases;re-developed . If you are in despair , feeling that the time has passed for whatever goal you have set or the "opportunity of a lifetime " has passed you by , January is a good time for you to prayerfully go before G-d and ask Him to reveal your season to you. Yours may be a season of planting or it may be a season of rest or of harvest. Just remember, there is a right time for everything and nothing is accidental in G-d's World.
