What do I mean when I am talking about the chapters in our lives ? First, let’s take a look at the meaning of chapters from the Webster Dictionary that apply to what I am referring to.
Chapters-a period of time or an episode in a person’s life , a nation’s history, ect. 2. A series or sequence. 3. A main division of a book, typically with a number or title.
Daily Wisdom Word Definition of Chapters-1. Parts of our life that have an opening and a closing to them. 2. Separations in life who’s meaning is of great importance which would bring us to a new point in life or new chapter.
The beginning or end of a period in one’s life are called chapter’s. They may not often be referred to as chapters, but if you look at the definition of one, it truly means chapters. For example, when I went through my divorce with Jay we had a beginning, middle and ending of our relationship resulting in one chapter in our life. Chapters are markers of when something big or important has gone on in our lives.
It can also mean moving from childhood, to our teenage years. These are definitely chapters in ones life, because we have passed a milestone in our lives, and it’s time to close this chapter and move on to a new chapter. Chapters are marked events in one’s life such as a graduation from high school or college. These chapters that pass, are the stepping stones to a new chapter in our lives. There are new things that will happen as you close the book on one chapter and turn the page to another.
Chapters can also be written in our lives where there are not such dramatic events that have happened. For instance let’s say your graduating from college and have been hired by a company before you graduate. These chapters are not as extreme as the previous example of simply graduating not knowing what is to come. Sometimes in life, we are actively writing chapters and sometimes in life, particularly when something happens in your life you have no preparation for, we are actively living chapters written by another Author such as God.
We can’t always be the author of the chapters in our lives, because we aren’t in full control of all the events that happen in our lives.
Hopefully, this has given you something to think about when life seems to be at a standstill. There is always a chapter being written that we may not be aware of, and this is when our faith is often tested. Remember, when life seems at standstill, you’re not in full control of events that happen, therefore, you aren’t always the writer in your own book.
I had a friend who wanted badly to be in a relationship and had lost faith that it would ever happen for her. Amazingly, one night in this era of time for her, she went out country western dancing and met a wonderful man. Even though she had children living with her from a previous marriage, this man and her fell in love, and everything fell right in place in a period of two weeks. This was obviously a chapter my friend wanted to write, but it was taken out of her hands. After all, how often is it that you meet someone and in a period of two weeks, know you want to spend the rest of your lives together?
Margaret, my friend, wrote the next few chapters in her life, along with her husband as they were married a month in their relationship. They were given a gift, and took full advantage of it.
