A Reason, A Season or a Lifetime

"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 it is, you know exactly what to do.
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 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 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 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;
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 (any way);
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.

Seems so logical, doesnt it? To put something as abstract and difficult to define/understand as love in such a logical way is...well...hmm...

They say the Lord works in mysterious ways. Ways that we dont always understand. There's a lot about life I dont understand. God gave us Love so we could feel for someone, for better or for worse. He gave us different kinds of love; family love, friendly love, brotherly love, religious love, significant other love, the list goes on. Yet in a lot of those instances, in our youth when we understand love the least, most of these loves arent meant to last.

He created love for us to want to hold on, yet in the end we have no choice but to let go. At least to some degree. Your parents will eventually die. As you grow older you change, your friends change, your relationship may change. This pertains to friends, as well as wives/husbands. If your partner changes over the years, whether for better or for worse, so much that they are different from the person you married, then on some level you have to let go. The same goes for the scenarios previously mentioned.

What happens if you meet someone who is there for a reason, only you dont yet realize it? When you do eventually realize it (usually when its too late), the lesson seems to be "ok, dont get too attached until youre sure"....but how do you know whether or not youre sure if youve never been there before? What if right after the "reason" person you met the "lifetime" person but stay detached and risk throwing away what could have potentially been a great thing? Ok, fine, then love and live life passionately. But Love tends to make one want to hold on and never let go, which is great for the "lifetime" person but bad for the "reason" person.

He must really be having fun up there.

If u think of God as a parent that has to stand on the sidelines as his/her child makes a very feeble attempt at walking for the very first time u will probably see that all of this is not just to have fun at our expense. Each situation helps us grow and with these situations He is hoping that we become wise enough to see the difference between the "reason" and the "lifetime".

Ditto SS. Love also means letting go though.
