A Closed Door

As you may already know Chanelle and I weren’t selected to go on staff for the Youth Pastor position we interviewed for a couple of weeks ago. As excited as we were about the possibility of going, I firmly believe that another door and oppurtunity will open up. God is laying out the path where His purpose and plan will be accomplished in our lives and in the lives of the people we will serve. I am fully determined that he has the place set where we are the right fit and we can invest in the lives of students and youth leaders.

I have taken away a few things that I hope will help you in your pursuit.

God’s will is more important than my wants.

Where one door closes another one will open.

Through this process, it has helped to solidify in our hearts and minds God’s call on our lives.

We are to celebrate the success of others.

Has there been a time in your life where a door was shut that you were excited about? What lessons did you learn and how did it advance your Life of Pursuit? Would you add anything else to this list?
