Now Is the Time

Description

Perhaps there was a time when you needed to hold on to your hurt so you could learn from it. But maybe now is the time you need to let it go.

Ecclesiastes 3:5-6  

A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away.

Have you seen the people on TV who live their lives surrounded with the items they couldn’t let go of? They hoard newspapers and magazines like memories from old songs that they never stop singing.

Sometimes we need to throw stuff away. Sometimes we need to go through the closets of our hearts and do some heavy lifting; getting rid of old baggage that holds us back and keeps us from living a life free from the burden of that Christ says He takes from us.

Maybe there was a time when you needed to hold onto that hurt, that ache that was there in your heart. Maybe you needed to hold onto it so that you could learn from it. But maybe now is the time you need to throw it away.
