Seasons of the Lord

It's been said that there is a time and place for everything.  Not only is that good sense from a human perspective, but it's Biblical.  Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us that, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every activity under heaven."  (NLT)  And my own experience tells me that this is so.

A few years ago, I started writing a blog.  I didn't do it with my own name, but used this "pen name," which really exemplified what I saw as my character at the time.  So I wrote and I wrote.  Another blog spun off of it and soon a third blog.  I blogged several times a week, and often took on important, controversial, and sometimes theological issues to blog about. 

While I blogged, people that read my blogging seemed to like it.  I got many compliments.  One of the blogs that spun off actually was the product of people writing to me to get my perspective on their individual dilemmas.  I began to see that perhaps they like my thinking and were looking for an opportunity to have my thinking applied to their circumstance. 

But one day, it all came to  a screeching halt.  I still cannot explain it today.  But I clearly heard God telling me it was time to stop.  I didn't know why.  Frankly, it felt like I was at the "top of my game," and that fame and fortune (a la Huntington Post) were possibly just around the corner.  But God said, "Enough."  And I knew that I must obey Him.  Even if I didn't understand Him. 

Quite honestly, I haven't missed blogging.  Some days I look back at all I wrote and wonder how I found time for all of that writing.  Some days I also wonder why I didn't write books and get paid for such writing!  There are even days when I will be dealing with something and remember that I researched and then blogged about it a long time ago.  So I'll go to the search feature and look it up in my blog. 

Well, the seasons change.  I see now, as I mature, that God is in charge of all the seasons.  And I'm not just talking about the seasons of the weather.  Lately, I've sensed God telling me to get back into the blogging game.  Thoughts and ideas are stirring in my head again.  I can see it coming.  I begin to wonder if there's an external stimulus --- such as the political elections --- that could be stirring my thinking.  But wait ... my thinking isn't necessarily political.  Rather it's a voice of reason, intent on cutting through the rhetoric - to see practical application of Biblical principles in our everyday lives. 

So it would appear that this particular season of silence is longer than I may have thought. I'm never sure what will move me to blog.  In fact, I know that there are people who blog daily, or regularly.  I wonder if they always have something truly relevant to talk about.  Maybe it's just that some people are moved daily, or are so constantly moved that they never run out of fodder for their blogging. 

Me?  I'm not sure.  Like I said in the beginning, I'm not sure why I started blogging in the first place  It seemed to be something born of circumstance.  So it will be interesting to see where this goes now!

    My name is Mr Frank,I live in Mexico,and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago,to the extent that she even packed her things away from me and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring her back,but all to no avail.I discussed it with a very good friend of mine,and he gave me an advice concerning a spell caster,and i quote.“There’s someone who can handle your situation,he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting,i will like you to contact him with his email,which is as follows.”dr Oodlia Temple Solution”. I never believed in spell casting,but he convinced me and i had no choice than to follow his advice,because i never dreamt of loosing my lovely wife.And that’s how i contacted him with his email address,and i discussed with him and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my wife back a day after.so i never believed,until when i got home,the next day,my wife called me to inform me that she was coming back…..So amazing!! That’s how i got my wife back through spell casting and our relationship was now stronger than how it was before.One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by “dr Oodlia Temple Solution”. So! my advice for you out there is to visit this same website,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back,to have a happy family.THANKS....

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me..
    My name is Andy mark,i live in United States,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{obasispelltemple@gmail.com }.So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster.So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {obasispelltemple@gmail.com},if you are in any conditionlike this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back.So thanks to the Dr. obasi of obasispelltemple@gmail.com for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again. {obasispelltemple@gmail.com }
