Everything Doesn’t Happen For A Reason 

Things happen because we make choices. It’s called free will. God did not make a plan for us and say this is what you will do with your time here on earth. He said here’s my plan for you. You can follow it or don’t. We have to make that decision. He doesn’t make it for us. So no everything doesn’t happen for a reason. Things happen because we make choices and then we pay the consequences, whether good or bad consequences. Here is a picture of what I think life looks like from an aerial view. The blue is God’s will and way. His perfect and best path for our lives. The purple is the choices we make that leads us off of his path.

Anyway…The straight path I’m sure would be much easier to follow than one with hills and curves. So often we think we know best or just don’t spend enough time focusing on what Gods will for us is. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”


Trust him and he will take you on the best path possible. Life happens because of the choices we make. God can and will take those choices and always work them into something wonderful for you if you let him.

Romans 8:28

 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Kara Bess
