Everything Happens for a Reason
For years, I have said this very thing to myself. I don't worry about situations that happen to me because I try to find the reason for it happening and learn from it. This line of thinking has helped me be a better stronger person. I think without it I would have been bitter and unloving. I know that God is teaching me through all situations and circumstances. It's me that's being too stubborn to heed HIS warning. We must open our eyes and learn and grow.
This morning I found a poem by an unknown author on this:
Sometimes people come into your life
and you know right away that they were meant to be there...
to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or
help figure out who you are or who you want to become.
You never know who these people may be but
when you lock eyes with them, you know that every
moment that you are with them,
they will affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you
at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection
you realize that without overcoming those obstacles
you would have never realized your potential, strength, will power or heart.
Everything happens for a reason!
Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck.
Illness, injury, love, lost moments
