This is one of the hardest things sometimes as a Christian. I remember struggling when we moved out to west Texas because we were going to chase the oilfield life dream. But it wasn't what God had for us, and every door closed right in front of us. We got frustrated. After months of struggling we moved back home. This eventually led to the path that God wanted us on. It seemed that when we stepped back and renewed our trust in God, things began to fall into place. When we focused on the doors that were closed and the possibilities lost, despair set in. Not only did we suffer in our family relationships, but spiritually as well. God will hold us through our struggles, but we must be willing to allow him to. We still battle our flesh sometimes; we are only human. But God still comes along side us and nudges us back onto the paths that he has for our lives.
