I believe that everything that happens in our lives happens for a reason. There are many different events that occur in our lives that seem horrible at the time, but eventually we realize it happened for a reason. Everyone goes through things in their lives that hurt but it wasn’t a pointless event. Things happen in our life that are far beyond our understanding, and that’s ok. I believe that we are going to have to endure things in our life that we wouldn’t choose on our own free will but at times, we just don’t have a choice. I have had many thing happen to me that I didn’t understand at the time and thought for sure it wasn’t right in any ways whatsoever, but as I grow up, I have figured out why they happened to me and that it was for a reason, I just needed time to find it. No one ever said that life was fair, and nothing is more true that that. Life is what it is and there’s only so much we can control. We can’t control life, but we can live each day and do things that are the right things, and whatever comes out of it is going to come out of it, its up to us on how we deal and react to what happens. Life gives us so many events, but instead of complaining about them, we need to learn from them and remember that God doesn’t give us more than we can handle. This is where my belief statements comes from, everything in our life happens for a reason.
