Taking Shape

People come into our lives – people we meet on the bus, or people we work with for years, or neighbors – sometimes for a very short period, sometimes for a long period.

I had a co-worker tell me once that she believed that people were in our lives for a reason, regardless of how long they were in our lives. She wasn’t a particularly religious person, in fact, maybe not religious at all. I have had other friends refer to the comings and goings of people in our lives as a “God thing”.

‘Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.”~ Flavia Weedn

I do believe that God has a specific purpose for everyone we meet – and even those whom we just have a conversation with, but never find out their name. These connections all have a purpose – maybe not for each of us, personally, maybe for those whose lives we touch. All of these moments – long and short – become the fabric of our being, intertwined to make beautiful and unique patterns.

“How much more grand is the work of our Heavenly Father as he pulls together all the varied strands of life to reveal his grand design?”~ Ravi Zacharias,The Grand Weaver: How God Shapes Us Through the Events of Our Lives

Who will you meet today that you may touch their life or they touch yours?
