Open the right ones…close the wrong ones.

That’s the prayer on my heart. My son and I tagged along this week as my husband traveled down to Georgia for a couple of job interviews. We are staying with my in-laws. My husband left early this morning to make the drive to his first of two interviews today.

I watched him as he left this morning through the carport door. It was the first significant door he’ll need to walk through today. He stepped out the door and into the unknown.

I’m sitting here now, in this dark and quiet house, deeply grateful for my husband.  I am thankful for his willingness and his desire to step out that first door. Yes, I hope the door will lead somewhere. But even if it doesn’t, I want to remember to be thankful for the doors. I want to celebrate these opportunities. I want to rejoice over the possibilities that come when doors open and close. Each one has the potential to lead some place beautiful.  I want to remember that today.

Thank you, Lord, for my husband who has worked hard at setting up interviews. Thank you for all the hours he has spent looking at jobs and filling out online applications. Thank you, for his love and dedication to our family.

And, yes Lord, thank you for doors.  Continue to lead us through the right ones.

What significant doors have you had to walk through lately?

    Wondered why you had decided to put your house on the market. Now I know. 🙂 Hope it goes well for him. I also admire your willingness to change when change is needed, even it means moving. I know you will use this downtime and alone time to focus on Jesus.

    Cannot even number the doors we have walked through as we have traveled this earth. One things that has grown in me is my trust in the Lord to shut doors that we did not need to walk through. It’s that space of time between the closed door to the next open one that always gets me, the hallways. Each one is different, each one designed to grow my trust. For me, being thankful for the closed door, the hallway and the next open door kept me sane many times. Will be praying for you.

    Oh, the doors He has opened and closed for me over the years! Praying for you and your husband during this transition, praying for wisdom, guidance and open doors. 🙂
