When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

Everything In Life Has a Purpose

Encouraging you to understand that everything in your life has a purpose on Near a River.

We all need to trust that everything that happens in our lives has a purpose!

Two angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the guest room. Instead, the family gave them a small space in the basement.

While making their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older one replied that things are not always as they seem.

The next night, the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor but hospitable farmer. After sharing the little food they had, this family let the angels sleep in their bed. When the sun rose the next morning, the angels found the farmer’s family in tears.  Their only cow, their sole income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was very angry.  He asked the older one, “How could you let this happen? The rich man had everything, yet you helped him by fixing a hole in the wall.  The poor family had very little and was willing to share and you allowed their cow to die.”

Again the older angel replied, “Things are not always what they seem. When we stayed at the rich man’s mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole.  Since the owner was greedy, I sealed the hole so he would not find it. Then last night as we slept in the farmer’s bed, the angel of death came for his wife.  I gave him the cow instead. Things are not always what they seem!”

When you think your life is not turning out for the best, things are not always what they seem.  And your life could be much worse! If you have faith, you also need to trust that the outcome has a purpose in your life, but you might not know what that purpose is until sometime later.

You will soar like an eagle above life’s storms if you trust that everything that happens in your life has a purpose.
