"Sometimes doors don't open because there is another door waiting for you."
That quote was sent to me in a text message yesterday from a man who I really look up to. It's something I am saying over and over to myself.
If I had experienced a day like yesterday more than 2 months ago, I would have taken the news I was told very poorly. I would have blamed myself for the rejection I received.
But instead? Instead I am hopeful. I am looking forward, knowing that God has a plan. Sure... this one opportunity may not have worked out. But it was part of His plan for it to be that way. He has something else in store. It may come in a month... or two years down the road... but one thing is for sure, it will come. In one way or another. I have faith that it will happen.
It's so easy to look at a rejection and say, "If only I would have done this or that differently." And sure, maybe I could have said, written or done something differently. But it really wouldn't have mattered. If it's not His will... it won't happen. No matter how amazing or perfect for the part may have I thought I was.
I need to remember... I don't open doors, He does. And when that next door opens for me, I will embrace it with all my might.
