The Bible says there is a time for everything..."TO EVERYTHING there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven: A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted, A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break 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 to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, A time to get and a time to lose, a time to keep and a time to cast away, A time to rend and a time to sew, a time to keep silence and a time to speak, A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a timef or peace." (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) During these difficult times we learn to trust in, lean on, and rely on the Lord for strength. The Bible says God is our refuge in difficult times. (Psalm 62:8)
