People come into our lives for
a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime.
Once we figure out which one it is,
we will know exactly what to do.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go,
while others become our friends and stay a while,
leaving beautiful footprints on our hearts, and we’re
never quite the same because we have known them.
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 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 move away, or they may walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
But 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 now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn
something. They bring you peace, make you laugh,
or they may teach you something and give you joy.
It’s real. You can believe it, 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.
There is a purpose for every person we meet in life.
Some are here to test us, some will use us, while others
are here to teach us. But most important are the ones
who bring out the best in us, they respect us and accept us
for who we are. These are the ones worth keeping around!
