From the book “Acts of Faith” by Iyanla Vanzant.
While the entire book is really great, (I’ve read it many times now as well as gifted it to friends).
I’d like to share with you my three favorite passages (there is one for every day of the year).
Hope you enjoy them too:
A reason. . . .
When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. 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 or out 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 it is now time to move on. Next!
When a prayer is answered, there is no need to cry.
