Here For A Reason

One of my favorite passages from Man of Steel:

Jonathan Kent: And I don't blame you, son. It'd be a huge burden for anyone to bear; but you're not just anyone, Clark, and I have to believe that you were... that you were sent here for a reason. All these changes that you're going through, one day... one day you're gonna think of them as a blessing; and when that day comes, you're gonna have to make a choice... a choice of whether to stand proud in front of the human race or not.

Clark Kent at 13: Can't I just keep pretending I'm your son?

Jonathan Kent: You are my son;... but somewhere out there, you... you have another father too, who gave you another name, and he sent you here for a reason, Clark; and even if it takes you the rest of your life, you owe it to yourself to find out what that reason is.

I'm grateful for the knowledge the Restored Gospel gives me that I have "another father" out there who loves me and has sent me here to this world for a reason. I may not understand all things right now, all the reasons I'm here, why I experience SSA, why I suffer from depression and anxiety, but what I do know is that God loves me forever, and that I am his son. As I seek to follow Him, he can show me the reason for all things, in His own time and in His own way.
