Did you know that people come into your life for a reason, a season or 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 to 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 godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing 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, our 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 lifetime 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.

Thank you Father God for sending people to be a part of our lives, whether it is for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Help us to know which one they are. Thank you for surrounding us with angels to encourage us and give us just what we need to get through. Thank you for knowing what we need and meeting all of our needs. In the name of your son Jesus The Christ, we pray and praise your name.

Hi AJ. I read a piece very similar to this in Iyanla Vanzant book in 2001. Don't remember which one. It was a collection of devotionals. God gives us each the same message sometimes? Very nice message.

God bless,
