This is also vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility)! So I turned around and gave my heart up to despair over all the labor of my efforts under the sun.
For here is a man whose labor is with wisdom and knowledge and skill; yet to a man who has not toiled for it he must leave it all as his portion.
This also is vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility) and a great evil! For what has a man left from all his labor and from the striving and vexation of his heart in which he has toiled under the sun?
For all his days are but pain and sorrow, and his work is a vexation and grief; his mind takes no rest even at night. This is also vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility)!
There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink and make himself enjoy good in his labor. Even this, I have seen, is from the hand of the Almighty.
For who can eat or who can have enjoyment any more than I can—apart from Him? For to the person who pleases Him the Almighty gives wisdom and knowledge and joy; but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and heaping up, that he may give to one who pleases the Almighty. This also is vanity and a striving after the wind and a feeding on it. (Ecclesiastes 2:1-26)
In suspense until the next time …

Father? I’m in suspense. I’m listening, and? Reflection on what I am listening to. Father? All these things You have shown to me, and? You have compelled me to write and publish them.
Now? In the last few weeks You have shaken all there was to be shaken out of me. My suspense? How do all of these things apply to Yahushua’s Ministry in my life?
