I was thinking today about the different obstacles, situations, trials, and tribulations we each face daily..I began to realize that oftentimes we try to make things, and people remain in places and situations where they no longer belong.
Not because it is best for them. Not because the perceived benefit would make them more successful in their life’s choices. And most of all, not because it will make them feel better. We do it for us. Ourselves.
How many times have you found yourself in a situation where you have wanted so badly for someone to do something because it made YOU feel better? Think about it.
There are times and seasons in our lives where we fail to let them pass as they should. What do I mean? Sometimes the seasons happen the way they do because they are a part of the overall scheme of things. The most important thing is to understand why you have been blessed with the opportunity to have experienced such a person or situation during those seasons in your life. The second most important thing is to understand what you should have learned.
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8(KJV) “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
Remember sometimes the season has passed, which means to get ready for the next! Stay Blessed!
