It’s interesting to see how God brings people into your life for a season.
Recently I got to hear a friend who was more of a part of my life a few years ago speak at a graduation ceremony. As I sat there listening to his highly interesting “mini-sermon” he delivered to the graduating seniors, I reflected on the nature of change and relationship seasonality.
As I wondered why this person couldn’t be involved more in my life at this point (other than for the obvious reasons, such as a job change), I realized that he was where he needed to be at this point in his life. God was obviously using him and helping him to become a more mature person.
I have also recently been blessed by a flurry of email exchanges my Aunt-in-law (if there is such a title). It’s just interesting that this exchange occurred now. Sometimes I wonder why we didn’t e-mail back and forth earlier, but I’m sure there is a reason for that also.
It’s funny how when we think that God doesn’t know what He’s doing, because it doesn’t make sense to us at the time, it always works out in the end.
