It comes as no surprise to anyone aware of the current housing crisis that sellers aren't selling and buyers are taking their time trying to find the best deals. Maybe it's just me, but I have more time on my hands than ever before. Today as I thought of other ways to earn money I was reminded by The Holy Spirit that God always has and always will provide for my need. Not that He expects me to sit around waiting for some angelic lottery to be deposited into my bank account but surely He prefers that I utilize this slow time in some fruitful way. Regardless of how I and you already serve God, consider other ways to be used even more. If you want to be His hands, His feet and His heart to someone then take your downtime and 'do unto others' meaningful expressions of love. Consider it a privilege to be a servant as Jesus was. Give sacrificially to others your time and energy as Jesus did. Focus your eyes on the needs of others and not on the challenges of the times we live in as Jesus would. There's a time for everything under heaven -- for me; more time to love is now!
A Time for Everything
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What does the worker gain from his toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.
