I used to hate the phrase, “everything happens for a reason.”
I am here to tell you that although we don’t understand WHY right now, there IS a reason. You might understand in a couple of months or you might never know in this life why you were asked to go through something but THERE IS A REASON. There is a bigger picture that is so intricately fashioned. Even the little everyday things happen for a reason.
There is a reason that she/he was called to that calling. There is a reason that the road was closed and you had to take the longer route. There is a reason that you are sitting next to her/him. There IS a reason that you had to stay in that class. There is a reason why that dress went out of stock. There is a reason for ___________.
Pray to understand why. Although He probably won’t tell you right away or that second, praying will help you understand and give you peace about the situation. Remember, everything will work out for your good. (D&C 90:24)
Please never forget that there is a bigger picture so intricately put together so that every single thing happens for a reason even if we don’t understand it fully right now.
