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

I was just thinking of the various reasons we get to meet people. Some of them come into your life as your own sibling or as a friend or even as a collegue. It is for you to see what part they play in your life.

I always believe that people come into your life for a reason, a season, or for a lifetime. 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 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 god send 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 and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, or 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 life time 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.

It is for us to identify in each one of those whom you meet to see if they have come into your lifefor a reason, season or for a life time.
