"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." - Ecclesiastes 3:1

Life brings with it some big problems. Many ask if there is a God, why does humanity have to  deal with death, wars, or any challenges at all?  God tells us there is a time and season for all things.  He is not to blame for the consequences of man's actions. Hardships and trials will come, but God has it all under control.
