OVERVIEWThere is a time and season for everything in life.

BIG IDEA: God gives value and purpose to all things.

KEY VERSEEcclesiastes 3:1
For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.

I am King and Lord of all. I bring beauty out of ashes. Do not grieve more than you should. There will be times of sadness and pain, and many questions will remain unanswered. But that does not mean life is meaningless or insignificant. Instead, trust me during darkness. It is OK to feel pain but know that I remain in control. I will bring joy and laughter and dance as well. You may be hurting today, but trust there will soon be a day where you rest and have peace.

I give life meaning and significance. You do not have to look elsewhere. Turn to me. You do not have to acquire items you can’t afford to impress people you don’t know. Trust me and my plan for your life. I have not hidden from you. I am here in your home, in your pain, and your questions. I am with you always.

Have a mindset today that God is everywhere and in everything. Trust God when bad things happen, and thank God when good happens.
