Do you ever see someone from your past that you never took the time to get to know? You weren’t necessarily rude to them or avoiding them, but you were busy or distracted or, if I’m brutally honest (talking to myself here), a bit (okay, a lot) self-absorbed.
And now you run into them or see them on social media and they are incredible. You realize you missed out on getting to know an amazing person that could have added to the richness of your life and learning.
It happens to me from time to time and makes me sad. I’m an introvert and I don’t put myself out there often or take the time to get to know people deeply. But these encounters from my past help me to want change that.
I realize God puts people in my path and life for a reason. There are people intended to be part of my story that I missed out on. I’m trying hard to not let that happen. Im trying to keep my eyes and heart open to those people God is placing in my path, and then stepping out of my comfort zone and engaging.
I don’t want to miss out on anything God has set before me, especially these special relationships.
