There are times and seasons for everything. These are appointed times that are set not by us, but by God. And although time seems to be fleeting with every day that passes by, God has a specific plan for each one of us in the times and seasons. Here’s a list of things that Solomon writes in Ecclesiastes:

There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven–a time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted. A time to kill and a time to heal; a time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance. A time throw stones and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace and a time to shun embracing. A time to search and a time to give up as lost; a time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; a time to be silent and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate; a time for war and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)

There’s a time for everything in our lives: from birth to death. God sees all of our days before we are even born (cf. Psalm 139:16) and has written them in His book.

So what’s the point to all of this? It’s simple: we have nothing to fear or worry about because there is a time for everything in our lives and God is fully aware of them. It also means that we can follow Him since He is the One who has planned out days. His plans are greater than my own. It brings me comfort to know that the Lord cares for me in such a way that I don’t have to worry about tomorrow; I’ll let tomorrow worry about itself.
