Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-
So…I applied for a promotion on my job and didn’t get it. There seems to be a recurring theme going on in my life where I would apply for something and not get it or not succeed in the magnitude that would expect. Envy and jealousy began to cloud my heart as I saw familiar names of those that got what I desired…but I rebuked those evil spirits and began to use my mouth to congratulate others. If the door doesn’t open for you then it wasn’t your door in the first place. As I get older I realize that what’s mine can’t be taken away from me, might be delayed a bit but it can’t be taken. So the position wasn’t mine and I’m okay with accepting that. We need to come to the place in our lives where we only accept what’s ours and if things don’t work out- it’s okay because God has something bigger and better waiting for us.
Stop mourning over what you didn’t get and rejoice about what’s to come. Rejoice, because what’s coming can’t be taken away from you- for it belongs to you an you alone. Be encouraged friends and know that God’s plan is perfect even in the midst of our imperfections.
Until next time,
