#BlessedBreak – New Year


For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter 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 throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
a time to tear, 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 time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

God of all days, you give us THIS time and THIS day and we do rejoice in it. We are grateful for life and breath and a new year. We ask your help in sustaining our promises and we promise to work with you in making this world a place of peace for all. Help us, be with us. Be with those who continue to make a difference for people. Send your healing through these people and through us, so this year we will make a difference in someone’s life for you. We pray for a blessing for 2017 and in gratitude for this day of beginning. #ACoBAmen
