Seasons Of Life

Looking Glass

I recently heard this interesting thought:

“Some people are in our lives for a season, and some people are in our lives for a reason”.

Actor Harrison Ford once made this observation:

“I have relationships with people I’m working with, based on our combined interest. It doesn’t make the relationship any less sincere, but it does give it a focus that may not last beyond the experience”.

Sometimes, God puts people in our lives that become lifelong friends – those people that are there through thick and thin. Sometimes, they are only there for a short season – a period of time for a specific reason – and then they are gone.

Solomon said:

“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under Heaven”. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:1

One of the great mysteries of life is having the wisdom to know when a season of life is passing. It’s not a good thing… it’s not a bad thing… it’s just life.

The key to dealing with it is… thankfulness. Being grateful to God for the time He allows us to touch the lives of others, and be touched by them in kind.
