door quote

lately i’ve been praying for open doors

so many close to me really need one

an open door –

an answer to prayers

 a door out from the trappings of struggles & worries

a door opening to new possibilities

 *

whatever it is that moves you to seek an open door

 know that God works everything for our good

know that He has a plan that will be so much better than we can ever imagine

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.”

– Jeremiah 29:11

*

so as we wait

we trust in one breath

yet in the next we wonder  –

If God would only . . .

Why doesn’t God . . .

How much longer, God .  . .

*

we wrestle with impatience that wraps the heart

and understanding that seems out of grasp

as we stand at doors that refuse to open

*

the heart yearns

and God knows;

the soul prays and pleads

and He hears;

we ask

and He answers,

He always answers

in His time

*

as you wait for Him to work things out for you

He might be working things out in you

even in the waiting

you are where you are for a reason

ask for contentment in this moment

ask how He can use you right where you are

and when He opens a door –

be ready to take a big, brave step of faith and gratitude through it

*

 blessings, 

Tracy
