Have you ever closed a door? What did it feel like?
Did it hurt? Were you happy?
Have you ever opened a door? And what about that? What did that feel like?
Now, what about the "doors" in your life?
I heard it said once, "sometimes you have to open the wrong door, so when you open the right one, you can appreciate that great gift you've been given."
I was thinking last night how so many different doors have been opened in my life because I was willing to close another. I think the problem we all run into at times though is staring so long at the door behind us.
When are you going to accept that maybe-just maybe, He can run your life better than you can?
I got home from my mission and got a job with my cousin. I'm grateful that door opened. 2 months later that door closed. Then I started EFY as a counselor. That summer shaped me in ways I couldn't imagine. Then that door closed. Then I worked at a grocery store, because of that door, I was able to see a family friend Lane quite a bit who was the manager of the Men's Wearhouse, my next job.
Because of a door in high school being opened to becoming best friends with TJ-I met Dustin. Through Dustin, I met Nate--through Nate, I have the best job I've had yet to this point in my life.
Maybe He can run my life better than I can.
As long as I don't stare at the past door too long.
