Confirmation

I love it when God sends you signs of confirmation on a decision.

Almost a year ago I made decision, after praying about it for months, to walk away from an aspect of my life that just wasn't good for me any longer.

I prayed daily for God to show me in a BIG way what his choice was for me regarding this matter. He not only kept telling me what His decision was but he also brought me peace about the decision.

And God has kept re-affirming his choice for me during this journey. He has kept me safe when confronted. He has kept me humble when faced with this issue. He has kept me gracious when asked about this aspect.

While I some times miss this aspect, He has blessed so much more than I deserve.

The saying, When God closes one door, He opens another is so true.

But here is how I like to look at it.

When God closes one door, He opens another, you just have to get through the hell in the hallway!

nice to get reassurance that the path you chose is the one He would have you go down.

You are so funny :).

My friend Ben used to say when we were in college that rejection was God's protection. I love to think about that when problems arise. Even though things might be terrible at one moment I know that God has something even better in store and my loss can turn into a gain!
