I am a firm believer that people come into our lives for a reason. It might take minutes to figure out why they were sent to you ….it might take years to fully understand the depth of the relationship. It is all revealed eventually.
Today I was reminded of this again with my running group. There are some new folks that are also new to running. Training for a marathon is a daunting task so having the support of the right people makes all the difference in the world. Some of the newbies are people I know from other areas of my life such school or through family. But there was one man that started with us today….
He had started training with another group and had a bad experience. He was sent to our group and thought he would give it a try. He worked hard to keep up throughout the run and bonded with the other (and only) man in my pace group. Listening to them talk I realized that this was a match made in heaven for more reasons than I can count. This was truly a higher power at work. I love when God shows up when I least expect it and reveals himself. Believe what you will but I believe there is a reason for everything. I have said before and believe with my whole heart that while we may not understand, like nor agree with God’s plan…but there is a plan. We have to have the faith to trust in that plan. That is what faith is…trusting in God.
Today reassured me that this man was in the right place, at the right time and this was going to be a healing place for him. I have faith…..
People come into your life for a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFE TIME.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.
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 though 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.
without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
This person will say or do something to bring the relationship to and end.
Sometimes they die.
Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes the act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realized is that our need has been met,
our desire fullfilled,
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.
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.
LIFE TIME Relationships teach you life time lessons things you must built upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
You job is to accept the lesson. Love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and are as of your life.
It is said that Love is blind but Friendship is Clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life. Whether you were, a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFE TIME. Peace.
