We should always be quick to appreciate the people in our lives. Many
times we take our family and friends for granted thinking they will always
be there, but with the unpredictability of life, we should remember to
learn from them as well as teach them. We are to laugh with them as well
as cry with them. We are to create lasting memories that will be with us
for decades to come. It is in the giving and receiving with our loved ones
that the true riches of life are found. Be encouraged to remember how
important your loved ones are to you. Simply imagine life without them and
you will quickly find how much you would be missing. Don't wait for it to
be too late, take hold of your blessings today and let each of those whom
you love know what they mean to you. You will find their joy will overfill
and peace in your heart will be abundant.
I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to realize the
importance to which your family and friends affect your own life.
REASONS AND SEASONS
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.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Hebrews 13:5-6 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be
content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave
thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
1 John 4:7-8 “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and
every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not
knoweth not God; for God is love.”
Psalm 37:23-27 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He
delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the LORD upholdeth him with His hand. I have been young, and now am
old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging
bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. Depart
from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.”
Psalm 46:1-3 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in
trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and
though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the
waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the
swelling thereof. Selah.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
