Trust In The Plan

So remember how I was waiting on some big news in this post and then again in this one and this one?  Well I got the final verdict the second week in September.  What a long, drawn out process.  And all for nothing.  I didn't get the position I had been hoping for. 

It's funny how life works out, though.  Two weeks after being let down and thinking for sure my career was over, something new came along.  Something better.  I went for it - and guess what?  It worked!  A month after taking a leap, I'm happily starting a new gig (within my current company) on Monday. 

When God closes a door, He opens a window.  You'd think after 29 years, I would learn to trust that there is always a plan.  It may not be my original plan.  It's a better plan. 

xoxo
