Woman hands praying | Nashville Christian Family Magazine - Free Christian Magazine

I am not a big believer of coincidences nor do I accept that our purpose is to “be” a Banker, Attorney, or “fill in the blank.”  The “Who we are” goes far beyond “what we do” as an occupation.   

Through the faint glow of wisdom provided to me through my education, experience, and the discernment of Divine precepts (morals and ethics), I have come to believe that we each have been given a destiny in this journey we call life.  Our personal destiny is also intertwined with many others and we each can choose to live out our predetermined fate or not.  If we try to turn away from our destiny, we will be “plagued” with repeated opportunities to get back on track.  When you least expect it, at just the right time, we will be introduced to certain people in specific locations in our travels.  The true purpose behind these meetings, though not clear or disclosed, will be to serve our needs, those we care about, or to benefit people we don’t even know, but rest assured the reason or reasons will be fulfilled.

During what I call, the annual season of love, I want you to know that I appreciate you being a part of my life and I hope that I have justly fulfilled all purposes needed in your life. 

I pray that God continues to bless each of us in our own unique way and that I am always a positive influence in the lives of all who depend upon me.  As a gift, please enjoy this poem and take a minute to share this message with those in your life.  You, and they, will be happy that you did.     

A Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime

“People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each 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 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 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.
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.

“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.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.”

If this is my last post, I want all to know there was only one purpose for all that I have written; to have made a positive difference in the lives of others.
