Are you a Reason,
a Season or a Lifetime?
|People come into your life for a Reason, a Season, or a
lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know
what to do for each person.
When someone is in our life for a Reason … It is
usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come
to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with
guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally
or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend – and
they are. They are there for the reason you need them to
be. Then without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient
time, this person will say or do something to bring the
relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they
walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a
stand. What we realize is that our need has been met, our
desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent
up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
When people come into your life for a Season it is because
your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you
an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach
you something you have never done. They usually give you
an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it. It is real …
but only for a Season.
Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons. Things
you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put
what you have learned to use in all other relationships
and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but
friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life.
