The People in our Lives

I cannot take credit for this, but it is worth posting because I am so very grateful for the people in my life and the people who have come into my life but have moved on in their own direction.  I take each relationship seriously and thank God for each one; good or bad.  Please read this and think about the relationships you have. Are they solid, or could they use some work? Whatever the situation, stop and give thanks for each one.


 People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.

God, bless our friendships.
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 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.

God, bring us friends who are going our way.

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.

 Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season, or a lifetime.

God, bring us friends who will be with us to the end.

  1. That was a excellent read|. Your insights were very illuminating and made me reconsider the recent developments in these areas. If only more writers are as mindful and as passionate about telling the population relating to these issues as you, we aspiring journalists would not get a really bad rep. Appreciate expressing yourself so articulately. You made my day.
