Direction….NOT Rejection

“You didn’t get Rejection, you got Direction.” 

As Mr. Walter said those words to me that Sunday back in September, I saw the situation in a completely different light! 

Earlier that year, I had applied for a counselor position at a Christian camp, but had not gotten the position.  Now it seemed like God was calling me to apply at another camp and I was unsure as to whether or not I really wanted to.  Those words Mr. Walter said to me, allowed me to see it the way it really was! 

So, I sent my application in and waited…..and waited some more…..and, yep….waited even more!  

Finally, after waiting for about 5-6 months, I received a letter from them in the mail today….informing me that I had not gotten a position.  Was I disappointed?  Nope!  Because I chose to see it as God’s direction – not as a rejection 🙂 

Yeah, it would have been fun to go, but God has a GREATER YES in store for me and I’m anxious to see what it is…although, I may not see it right away, or even see it at all for that matter; but I know God has a reason!!
