I was reminded of a wonderful quote by the rockstar Oprah, “Everything that happens to you, happens for you.” Often I view my life as reacting to what’s happening to me. Almost as if I’m a victim of my circumstances. But viewing life’s situations as things that are for me? That changes things. Each moment holds for me: a nugget of wisdom, a lesson to be learned, a beauty to be seen, a sadness to be felt. Instead of acting as a passive participant, I am receiving a gift. It reminds me of the verse, “All things work for the good.” May we see whatever comes our way as an opportunity for us.
