Does Everything Really Happen for a Reason?

"Everything happens for a reason" might be the most cliché statement you hear from anyone. They usually say this to comfort a struggling person but does everything really happen for a reason?

Everything does not happen for a reason but instead everything does happen can be redeemed and used by God for a truly remarkable purpose. It is on Romans 8:28 "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

These two reasons are entirely different. We need to know and understand that there are things in this world that are not God's doing. He may have allowed these things to happen but he did not forcefully direct them to you.

An author also cited that when someone uses the phrase "Everything happen for a reason" they could mean these things:

1.     "Your father died of Cancer for a reason."

2.     "Your son got hit by a drunk driver for a reason."

3.     "Your child was stillborn for a reason."

4.     "You were abused as a child for a reason."

5.     "You were raped or sexually assaulted for a reason."

6.     "You are struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts for a reason."

7.     "Your spouse cheated on you for a reason."

8.     "Your friend was murdered for a reason."

9.     "Your house caught on fire for a reason."

10. "Your friend committed suicide for a reason."

These statements may sound lesser comforting now but God uses them for a purpose and allow those testimonies help His kingdom.
