beautifully rooted || signs.

Sometimes we see the signs, but we look straight through them. We tend to look for something bigger, clearer, and we miss what's right in front of us.

Last month, I tearfully confessed to my husband I'd been feeling discontent with my job and with my career. I longed for a change, but I wasn't sure what that change would look like. Together, we took that need to the Father. We chose to pray boldly, asking for opened doors and new opportunities.

One week later, I had a job offer to run a bookstore in my hometown.
I was thrilled, but I was also hesitant. I worried about money, about job security, about working retail, about missing Saturday football games.

Despite a fairly clearcut sign from above -- an out-of-the-blue job offer I never in a million years could have anticipated -- I needed more proof.

I needed more than the sign I'd been given.
