Authenticity, Life Direction and Purpose
Not Living Up to Your Potential? No Problem…
To everything There is a season And a time to every purpose, under heaven A time to be born, a time to die A time to plant, a time to reap A time to kill, a time to heal A time to laugh, a time to weep To everything There is a season And a time to every purpose, under heaven A time to build up, a time to break down A time to dance, a time to mourn A time to cast away stone, a time to gather stones together To everything There is a season And a time to every purpose, under heaven A time to gain, a time to lose A time to rend, a time to sew A time for love, a time for hate A time for peace.
