Reason, Season, or a Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. 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 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 or out 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 you sent up has been answered and it is now 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 may bring you 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, those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway), and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of our life. It is said that love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant.

The PRESENT is the gift from God that you receive when he puts someone in your life.

God may put someone in your life for five seconds, five years, or five decades.

God doesn't promise us any certain time with someone and it's what we make of that time that is our gift from God. That's why we call it the PRESENT So enjoy the PRESENT from God.

Thank you for being a part of my life. May God hold you in the palm of His hand and angels watch over you.

*** This was shown to me in the seventh grade by a teacher of mine and I recently reflected upon it and it has helped me to open my eyes so much to some situations I have been in.
