Have you ever thought of God, Jesus, our relationship to Them and how They might relate to doors?
“Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”
We are confronted with doors all of our lives. I, myself, have come up to many that were available for me to walk through.
The way that I reacted to the doors that I came up to for years was that I used my busyness as an excuse to not even try to go through them. So, I just stayed in my own little world without any newness and my life became drudgery…
There have been a few doors that I knew were not for me but I forced my way through them and have regretted some of those terrible choices every day of my life.
I have opened a lot of doors and peeked through them to the other side and gotten so terrified because I knew that the other side of that door was for me, but I could not bring myself to walk through them. I would turn my back and walk away.
Jesus came knocking very gently on my door one day and I timidly opened it. He came in and sat at my table and became my companion for life. Because I opened that door is the reason that I live and breathe and love and write. I have never regretted it.
During my life, a lot of doors have been slammed in my face.
I have slammed and sealed a few doors very tightly shut.
There have been a few doors that I could never unlock.
“Behold I stand at the door and knock…”
There is a new door. It is standing open for us to walk through. We will walk through it tomorrow. Why am I afraid?
Unfamiliar territory, new land to be tilled, I need to be tilled, new planting, in my heart…
“And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.”
I take up my cross and follow YOU, Lord!
Not my will, but thy will be done, Lord!
Whether the door be shut, slammed or the path on the other side be long, rocky or an unfamiliar one.
Not mine, but thine!
Love, blessings, Godspeed,
