“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” ~Alexander Graham Bell
I know I have been a victim of that, but I try my best not to. Sometimes we get so caught up with what didn’t happen, we can’t see what could happen.
This quote reminds me of the time I first started my internship, at my current employer. I went on quite a few interviews and the one interview where I nailed it, but didn’t get that job, for other reasons, I was so sad. I really wanted that job, but at the time I kept wondering why I didn’t get it. I did not understand what God had in store for me. I was so upset I couldn’t understand how they couldn’t give me this job.
Looking back, that job wouldn’t have been a good fit for me. The job I have now gives me set hours and it goes great with my mini’s schedule; which means I can pick her up and drop her off with no problem. The people at my job truly care about me and I love my job.
I believe if I sat there looking at the closed door too long and allowed it to discourage me more, I wouldn’t have stayed where I am and would have never gotten hired. I’m glad the Lord saw fit for me to see this now and appreciate it.
