Do you believe that sometimes things happen for a reason?

Sometimes we learn and become a better person when we are challenged in a crisis, whether it be in a personal, financial or health situation?

  • Of course everything happens for a purpose. And, it's to teach us lessons. We either learn to rely on God, and let Him work His plan for our lives, or we continue to get in His way, and let the bad stuff keep piling up. I have learned that trusting God, and knowing HE knows far better what's best for my life than I do, has relieved stress, and helps me know I DON'T have to do it all myself, God WANTS to lead me, and I find when I let Him, things always go the way they are supposed to.

  • While believe that things happen for a reason, I don't believe women are given special needs children to teach them a lesson on behavior. God would never punish a child for the actions of the mommy- and I'm kind of amazed you'd look over here for validation of the horrible things you said in P and CE without telling the whole story.

  • I think a lot of things are placed in our path all the time. I also think that many times we don't choose the right one

  • I believe EVERYTHING happens for a reason. AND, it might not be a for YOU, but for someone else and you just needed to be a part of it.

  • i HAVE to believe this!
    if i did not i would have cracked
    super difficult things in the last year

    sometimes i feel like before i came to earth, i signed up for too many life lesson classes
    maybe in last life i was a horrible person, and this is karma coming back to bite me in the behide

    hope to God it is the first choice, would hate to think this was karma because how i was in last life, if so i was a terrible person, and would not ever want to imagine that anyone would deserve this much crap on their shoulders because they deserved it
