I received an e-mail this morning talking about people being in your life for a reason, season, lifetime. I’d read/heard this many times. But for some reason it really felt like an eye opener this time!!
When someone is in your 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 wrong doing 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 must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
I recently had this happen to me and I didn’t realize it until just today!! Once I came to that realization it was like all the hurt & bad feelings were lifted. I grew as a person which I would not have done had this person not come into my life when they did. This person helped me see my faith in a new light. My faith was re-newed and made stronger. This person also helped me come off my anti-depression medication! I’m not sure if this person realized how much they helped or not?? I think s/he may realize a little bit. But not the entire depth of it all!! I wish things hadn’t gone the way they did but after stepping back and looking at the big picture I realize things happen for a REASON!! 😉 🙂
