“There in heaven a door stood open! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.’” (Revelation 4:1)
So often in life we have the feeling that a door has closed to something that had great meaning for us. As sad as it may seem that this door has closed perhaps that old saying is correct, that when one door closes another one opens. At least that is always our hope. This now closed door can provide us with a time to examine how we view this occurrence. Maybe we are too quick to label it as negative. So, rather than dwell on the fact that this door before us now closed, maybe what has actually occurred is that the first door has closed from the draft of a new door God is swinging open, with new opportunity presenting itself. This new opportunity could very well be one that we would have never recognized if we were too invested in the journey through that original door. That door that has closed could be the best thing that ever happened to us. The draft from this new door opening is something we can affirm begins a new and exciting journey, replete with new opportunities to learn and grow. New corridors are exposed from which we can receive inspiration and insight.
New doors opening are all part of God’s divine ongoing creation. Since we know that we never take our journey of life alone, but that the presence of God/Spirit is always right where we are, we can rest assured that exciting adventures and experiences await us.
Affirmation: “God leads me to, and guides me through, open doors of greater and more abundant opportunity.”
