Excited, calm and curious…
Have you ever tried naming your feelings as you begin the day? I woke with the ones listed above. I have an interview today so it wouldn’t surprise me to be nervous, fearful and anxious but I feel none of those things.
Today I will get the opportunity to meet some people, make connections and learn new things. These are things I love to do. In all things, our perspective is paramount so I consider and guard mine carefully.
I’ve prayed for God to guard the doors in my life so I trust God to open doors and lead me through them if they are indeed the right doors for me. I also trust him to close them or pull me back if they’re wrong. I believe God has a much more powerful plan for our lives than the job we choose. I believe he can use any path we run to accomplish his purposes in and through us, but staying in line with his will makes it all so much sweeter.
His will can be difficult to discern sometimes. That’s why constant communion with him is vital. If we continue to seek the light of his truth and his call, we can walk through even the shadows with confidence and rest in his warmth on the other side.
