A Time for Every Season

Posted in Our heritage / Prayer / SU QLD

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” — Ecclesiastes 3:1

This verse from Ecclesiastes and the passage that follows it fills me with a deep sense of thankfulness. It reminds me that God Himself invented the concept of time. Even more amazingly, He has carefully planned out the seasons of our lives!

In my role, I spend a lot of time talking to our amazing SU QLD supporters. They are inspirational people, many of whom have walked through many seasons of life, and now want to make a lasting difference for future generations through a gift in their will to SU QLD.

I love hearing the stories behind why people want to leave a gift like this, to hear about the journey they’ve been on, and the impact that God has had on their life through the ministry of SU QLD.

To me, these beautiful supporters are the living embodiment of selflessness. They know they have the power to help others beyond the span of their own time here on earth – and so they do.

It reminds me of the heart behind the work of SU QLD.

This movement has a rich history of planting seeds in the lives of children and young people, and watching the buds grow and blossom over the seasons.

It is my prayer that we continue to journey alongside children, young people and their families through our ministry arms well into the future — whether that be chaplaincy, camps, or our dedicated support for at-risk youth.

Whatever the vehicle, will you please join me in praying that we continue to ensure that Jesus is in the driver’s seat? I know you share my heart in this matter.

While we may not know how long we have on this earth, there are things that we can be sure of – that we serve a loving God who cares deeply for us, that He has a special place in his heart for our young people, and together we can work towards a better future for these precious ones.
