A Reason, A Season, And A Lifetime

Isn't it funny how the right things are brought to us at just the right time. Often it's the big things like love or money, or a new job or relationship. But today it was something small, that I'm sure will have a big impact on those of you reading it. I have a client who’s going through a hard time trying to figure out what lessons she needs to learn from her current relationship, and what category it fits into: lesson, blessing or both. This poem came up on my Facebook feed, and I thought it was just a perfect illustration of the reasons people come into our lives, and what we can learn from those experiences:

A Reason, A Season And A Lifetime

A Reason, A Season And A Lifetime
~Brian A. "Drew" Chalker~

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
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.
