People come into our lives 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 or felt.
They have come to assist you through a hard time, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. Then, suddenly, the person disappears from your life. Your need has been met; their work is done.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share or grow or give back. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh or learn. They give you great joy. Believe it; it is real. But only for a season.
Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons – things you must build upon 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.
Think about the peeps in your life over the years. Whether they were there for a reason, a season or a lifetime, accept them and treasure them for however long they were meant to be part of your life.
And when they are gone, be thankful for the gifts you received from them when they were here – for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
So don’t be sad if it is over. Be glad that it happened. You grew and learnt your lesson.
