There’s A Reason For Everything ~ January 23

There’s A Reason For Everything

Including you!

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1

Even if life were a bowl full of cherries, there would still be pits to deal with. And, I’ll bet you there’s a creative person out there who’s found something creative to do with cherry pits. Well, I can think of one; grow more cherry trees!

There’s a reason for everything, and when it’s all said and done, all the things we’ve seen, heard, said, and done have brought us to this moment in time. There’s no denying that.

One of the things we tend to be self-condemning about is what we haven’t done. We all have an inherent desire for our lives to have meaning and purpose, and when we review our contributions to the world and mankind we too often look back and see nothing of note. Consider this: If everyone were famous, no one would be famous.

There will always be greater and lesser persons, but who is to say what is great in the eyes of God. How can we know that some small kindness, some minor achievement, was not the catalyst that led another to a great discovery or tremendous accomplishment.

God is in charge, He has a part for each of us to play, and all we have to do is focus on Him and allow Him to do with us as He will.
