Do you think people die for a reason

Updated on January 24, 2015

What is this all about

First let me explain a little something about this.

Its not some religion story that I just wrote to promote God and the after life. No what I have written below is based on facts and research.

It came to me one day when I was out walking. I was thinking about how my life turned out.

Yes I am very happy with how it turned out and would not change a thing. But as I was thinking back when I was a lot younger their was two people in my life that died very young.

Not at the same time but about twelve years apart. If any of these two people where alive today my life would be so different from the way it is now. I don't know if it would be worse or better. But I know I would never of married my wife that I am with now, and went on and have children with her plus I also know a lot of other things that I would not of done with my life.

When these two people died I thought it was the worst thing that could ever happen.

One was only aged 12 and the other was aged 21 But if I had a choice now, would I change what happened to them. I don't think I would, as I know my life would be so different now. Plus looking at some other people who knew these two who died. Their life's also took a path that they would never of taken if they where alive. Would they change what happened if they could. I don't know. I suppose some might and some would not.

But as for me, the more I think about it, the more things I can pinpoint that I have done, which I am glad that I have done. But if these two people had lived none of these things would of happened.

So looking back at all the good things that have happened to me. Plus looking at some of the other people that also new these two. A lot of good has happened as a result of these two deaths. But would there be better things or worse things off happed if these two had lived.

I guess none of us will know for sure. But one thing I do know is, if anything was different I would not have the children I have today.

Death of a Husband

I met this elderly lady at an airport a while back. The plane was delayed a few hours and we just got talking by chance. I don't know how we got onto the subject but she started talking about her second husband and her only son. Her son was now grown up and worked with some medical firm that is involved in cancer research. She went on to tell me that her son won some award for his work that he was doing with cancer research.

After a while I asked her about her first husband and had she any contact with him anymore. She than told me that he died of cancer three years after they got married. After he died she thought she would never get over it. But as time goes on it gets a bit easier to live with. Than she caught me by surprise and said her life has worked out better now. I asked her how do you think that. She said she always wanted children but her first husband could not have them. But if he had lived she would still be with him today. They may of adopted children that she don't know for sure.

So as she was thinking back at what she has now and what she has done with her life I asked her would she change anything. Her answer was, even if one little thing was different she would not have the son she has today.

Death Of A Son & Husband

This person I do not know or have never talked to, but her story is well know in my area of the world as it was so sad.

Her husband whom she was married to for around five years, suffered from depression. They also had a three year old son together. One day while she's was working her husband decided to end it all. He held a pillow over his sons face and suffocated him than when out and drove his car at speed into a wall. Both died that morning.

As you can imagine it took the woman years to get her life back together. But as time went on she remarried and had two more children.

One of the two children joined the Fire service and on a call out one day he saved two children from a burning fire. He than lost his life when he went back into the house trying to save the children's mother.

Four people have now died so these two children can live. The woman's first husband and son plus her son with here second husband and the mother of the two children all died.

Is this just bad luck or is there a reason these children must live or would they still be alive even if the other people did not die.


Above are three stories all true. I have looked into a few more stories where people have died and it seems at the end of each story a new life will come along that would never of been there unless someone died before hand.

But not all stories are like this and in some cases I can find no reason for the death of young good people. But I must say about seventy to eighty percent of what I researched new life comes along that would not be here unless someone else died.

So it may be of some comfort to some people that if you lose a loved one, that there may be a reason for it.

It might that awhile before that reason shows itself and you might never see the reason but it does appear some people are born because of other peoples deaths.

Than again there might be no reason and this is just life.

      I'm sure that God has a purpose for our lives, they are in His hands and so is the time when He calls us home. Interesting stories.
