Uplifting Daily Christian Thoughts

Sometimes ....

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they
were meant to be there, they serve some sort of purpose, teach you a
lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be; your roommate, neighbor,
professor, long lost friend, lover or even a complete stranger who,
when you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they
will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you and at the time they may seem
horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that
without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized
your potential,strength, will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by
means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of
true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits
of your soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses
or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat
road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life and the successes and downfalls
you experience, they are the ones who create who you are. Even the bad
experiences can be learned from... those lessons are the hardest and
probably the most important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them,
for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being
cautious to who you open your heart to.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because
they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening
your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without
them.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything
that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.

Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen, let
yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. Hold your
head up because you have every right to.

Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for
if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.
