God Opens Doors When Doors Slam Shut

God Opens Doors

There was a time in my life a long time ago where I felt so bored and no sense of purpose.  Soon doors were starting to slam and at the time the new open doors seemed frightening to enter.  Many familiar doors were closing behind me and I forged ahead because there was no going back. I was losing part of my familiar source of security. 

 I finally faced the fact that the door had to close to the home that my husband and I had lived.  Fortunately we found a great renter while moved ahead to a new place.  We moved on through a new door and this door manifested into a very difficult time where the new atmosphere and circumstances were hard, but as I look back God was using it for a training ground for something better. 

 I prayed every day for a new door into peace and a beautiful new place. After finding the door to this place, I felt like it was God’s choice for this door and not mine and it was great for a while. Eventually the past bad doors that I had chosen many years ago that I had not let go were caving in on me. Things just weren’t going well anymore.

Some time has gone by and I am now entering a new door alone but with God’s guidance.  I just know that this will be the best door so far.  I am trusting and praising Him knowing that God opens doors and I am not alone in this journey.  I know that the trials in these doors I am going through will be used by God for the good. My own efforts with the past doors I thought would be great have been just the opposite.

 I am patiently looking forward to what God has behind this door because I trust that it will be God’s perfect plan this time and I am looking forward to what He has in store for my life.

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.  But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 1Peter 4:12-13

  1. Sometimes these doors are more like a training ground, molding us unto the image of Christ. Lately I’ve been clinging to Romans 12, be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer. Thanks for sharing this! #fmfparty

  2. What great promises our Lord has. I agree trials are a training ground, they have taught me quite a bit and I’m still learning! 🙂

  3. May God be with you as you travel through the new door that God has lead you to!
