If love is an open door,
life must be an open road.
Both involve choices.
The path you end up taking depends on your choice, and no one else’s.
When you make a bad choice, you veer off the path you were meant to take, and enter a door you were meant to leave shut.
Both have consequences.
Being in the wrong place at the right time can leave you scarred, hurt, in pain, alone, pregnant, hungover or find you waking up somewhere you never expected.
Aligning yourself with the negative can drain the positive until before you know it, you are running on empty.
But you have never gone too far down the path for God to bring you back.
You can leave that room and close that door once and for all.
I am living proof.
When I have hit my lowest, God has been there to remind me just how loving & powerful He is, and how much bigger He is than the situation I am facing.
Not being in the drivers seat is a blessing in disguise when the Driver has perfect up close & long term vision.
Spending time with Him at the wheel helps us to safely navigate what might otherwise cause us to swerve and crash.
Taking the time to wait and pause before making major decisions is also one of the best ways of opening the right door. So is heeding when you are told not to go through a door.
If God has plans for us to prosper, bless and flavour us, why do we tend to rush on in without waiting?
I think most of us are afraid life will pass us by, and we will miss out.
We will miss that one thing we are meant to do, and as a result, miss our purpose for being here.
If you are spending time in His presence, listening for and to His voice, and living life in His Kingdom, you will not miss out.
He promises we will inherit. Those who press in for Him will find Him. He gives wisdom to all who ask.
Life can be a highway to those of us going too fast, moving at our own speed.
I think life is more like a back road passing through a community, connecting us with purpose, help and family.
But most importantly, love is an open door.
The single most important decision you can make in your life is opening the door of your heart to allow God in.
The choice is up to you.
