We spend so much of our lives waiting for “the right person.” The right person to marry. The right person to hire us for that career-making job. The right person to make it happen, whatever “it” is.
Many years ago, after diving into a relationship with someone who “might be the one” (she wasn’t), I asked my unattached friend Craig, “What about you? Haven’t found the right person yet?” His answer was not what I expected:
“No. I haven’t been the right person yet.”
That phrase burrowed its way into my brain and still lives there.
So much in life takes longer than we expect, or never happens at all, at least not the way we expect it to. But keep going, keep growing. Because while you’re looking for it, it is looking for you. And it won’t be able to find you until you’re…
the right person.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heavens.” ~Ecclesiastes 3:1
