Are You a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime…?
People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When we figure out which one it is, we will know what to do for each person.
When someone is in our lives for a reason, it is usually to meet a need we have expressed. They have come to assist us through a difficulty, to provide us with guidance and support, to aid us physically, emotionally, intellectually or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are!
They are there for the reason we need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on our 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 must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer we sent up has been answered.
And now it is time to move on.
When people come into our lives for a season, it is because our turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring us an experience of peace or make us laugh. They may teach us something we have never done. They usually give us an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it! It is real!
But it is only for a season.
Lifetime relationships teach us lifetime lessons; things we must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Our job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what we have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of our lives. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Stop here and just smile. This last part is to show people you love them and to see how many people love you!!!!!!
Don’t feel embarrassed, because only you will get the results.
