Everything Happens for a Reason


I do believe that everything happens for a reason. I am Muslim and we believe that God is involved in everything and that there is a reason for everything, even the bad stuff. Even the bad stuff has a purpose; these are trials that test us and help us to learn to persevere.

We can usually figure out, if we really try, why something has happened and the purpose it means in our lives. God gives us trials and good things that help us grow as people. We learn a lot about ourselves from the experiences we go through. That’s why God let’s us go through these things, both good and bad.

Your second questions, “What was the purpose of this prompt?,” was a stupid questions and shows that you don’t believe that everything happens for a reason. But this prompt has a purpose. too. It is not an easy prompt to write more than two sentences about, so it was a challenge to spend more than five minutes writing about the prompt. It was a challenge to us; that was it’s purpose. So It just goes to show that everything has a reason, no matter how small the issue is. Even as small as this prompt.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
