Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be - a roommate, a neighbor, a professor, a friend, a teammate, a family member, or even a complete stranger - but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere. It's hard to figure out what God has in store for your life if you are never face adversity or hard times, because when you face a difficult time, He is always there to give you strength and help you through. There will never be a better friend than Him.

The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are sometimes the most important ones. If someone loves you, give love back to them in whatever way you can, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and listen to what they have to say. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you. You can make anything you wish of your life. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets. You never know what tomorrow may have in store, so think before you speak and say something that could potentially hurt someone or your relationship with them. Learn a lesson in life each day that you live!

God has a plan in store for each and every person. Live everyday knowing that you are here on earth for a purpose. Your purpose is to serve the Living God and share His word to all you can. Go through each day confident that you know there is more than life on earth, it only gets better from here. He is always in control and He will not let you experience situations that you can't handle. Smile... Because Jesus loved you enough to die for you.

Today is the tomorrow you were worried about yesterday. Was it worth it?
