"Meaningless! Meaningless!" says the Teacher. "Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless!"

Ecclesiastes 1:2 (NIV)

To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born, And a time to die;...

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 keep, And a time to throw away;...

A time to love, And a time to hate;

A time of war, And a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2a, 3b-4, 6b, 8 (NKJV)

If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.

Ecclesiastes 11:4 (NLT)

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD,

thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

I will be found by you, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 29:11-14a (NKJV)
