I never really understood the statement about how God opens doors. What doors? Like a literal door, or a figurative door? Will I know that it is a door? These are just a couple of the questions that confuse me about this statement.
God opens and Closes doors
We all say this, well at least we have all heard this statement. It is christianiese that encompasses every opportunity that we receive. In other words, it is a yes or a no. I think one of the reasons I never understood this statement was because I was not looking for the doors, I was creating my own. Instead of waiting for the door to be open I was just going threw the wall to get where I needed to be. That all changed once I become an unemployed guy waiting on God’s timing.
Patience was never a virtue of mine. So when I hear statements like God will open a door for you and close the ones that you do not need to enter I get a little frustrated, mainly because it is not in my timing.
Today I realized the timing of God. It is funny, chaotic, unexpected, and yet perfect. Do not ask me how it works or for that matter if you can predict when it will come. All I know is that over the last 8 months God has been opening doors that I did not see. Today, He made it obvious. I often wonder where I would be if I was not faithful to the little doors that He opened in the past. You know, those little opportunities that you get that seem promising, but lead to just a one time thing? Have you ever wondered what opportunities, or for this post sake, what doors you missed?
I think the more we try and get ahead of God the farther behind we become.
Today is a day to share your story. To share any story, but to share with this community and opportunity that you have had that God made a way. This can be a time of encouragement both to readers and to yourself, it can be a therapeutic time of confessing, or it can be a good story of laughter. All I ask is that you share…
Here is one from me called “I should have”
Now it is your turn…
