“People come into your life for: a reason, a season, or for a lifetime.”
We all have people that come in and out of our lives for one reason or another. Whether they are in our lives for a specific reason, a certain season, or for a lifetime could make all the difference in the world. Have you been in a point in your life where you were faced with a difficult challenge and someone came into your life to help you through it? Was that person placed in your life for just that reason? Looking back at that challenging time, could we have made it through that challenge without that person? People come into our lives and they may be there just in the nick of time to give us that momentary inspiration, those words of wisdom, or to simply help us see what others have not been able to show us. A season is a little longer and could have a transitional purpose as to why this person came into your life. Leaving a long relationship such as marriage can be one of the most difficult things we are ever faced with. When do we begin dating again? When we start to date are we opening our hearts to love again? Maybe a person for a season is needed to help us heal and open our hearts and minds to a better relationship. Our person for a season can help us laugh again, feel again, want again. We may just need to get over the hump so that we are ready when the right person comes along for a lifetime.
When a person comes into our lives for a lifetime this person will be impactful to our lives. It could be our best friend, our sibling, or our life partner. This person for a lifetime is going to be there through thick and thin. There is an exchange of ongoing support, caring, love and so much more. These are the people that we smile at when we think back about the good ole times. This is the person that you share a special moment with, or if they are not there, you wish they were there so that you can share that time with them. It is important that we are self-aware about those that have or will come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. You may have a new person in your life that fits into one or more of these categories. Is it possible to have a person that fits into all of these? Could they be for a specific reason initially, then later for a season, and finally they end up in your life for a lifetime?
