"The One That Got Away"

"In another life
I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises, be us against the world
In another life
I would make you stay
So, I don't have to say you were the one that got away...the one that got away."
~Katy Perry~

That awkward moment when you make eye contact with someone, and it seems like both of you want to talk to the other, but for some reason no one is going to make that first step. So...Absolutely nothing happens. 

I guess this was a concern on my mind last night for whatever reason. What if we meet someone that we don't necessarily talk to all the time but want to get to know better? What if we think there could be some potential there down the road? What if we're too afraid? What if we miss out on that opportunity forever, and they become 'the one that got away'? All of these 'what ifs?' were filling my mind. I was fearful that what if something gets in this way or this happens or that happens.  Then, as I talked to my friend, Ceci, about it I realized that's not possible. People that are MEANT to be together always find a way. No matter what has happened in the meantime. The Man upstairs knows what he's doing; I have to trust that, and have faith it will all come together for the best. Even if it's not what I had originally planned, it means that something better is out there. 

There's a certain situation that's taking all of my faith right now and I KNOW God is going to take care of it. Slowly, but surely He has been answering my prayers about it in small doses. He knows what I can handle. The worst thing that happens is I go back to square one, which is basically where I'm at right now, and I'm fine. All these puzzle pieces are fitting together and maybe, just maybe somebody out there is praying about me too. I've already seen that things are starting to come together when I compare this moment to the past. I have to have faith in God, and not myself. 

I asked God for guidance in my dream last night; I did see a couple of things, but at the same time I'm right where I am now, and things are still up in the air. Maybe God's saying I just need to wait, and there's nothing to figure out right now. Or maybe there's nothing to show. I have no idea, but I need to keep trusting Him and worry less.
