Letting Go of the Old Season

30 08 2011

Letting go is key to moving into this season of reconciliation and grace…


ECC 3:1 There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under heaven:


ECC 3:2 a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a time to uproot,


ECC 3:3 a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,


ECC 3:4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,


ECC 3:5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain,


ECC 3:6 a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,


ECC 3:7 a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,


ECC 3:8 a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.



     I love Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 as it pertains to entering into this new season, verse 6 states a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away. When we think of giving up, we in vision failure and throwing in the towel, yet here we see it is linked with letting go. We need to let go of everything that hinders us and then the sin that so easily entangles us (to read more about this please read the last post of my blog). It is a blessing to be able to let go, and in letting go of our bumps and bruise, we make room for the new!


     Take time this week, read each verse and allow God to bring to mind whatever needs to let go. I had to let go of all the disappointment in the last season and as I did I freed myself to enter and embrace this new season with joy.
