Closed doors on my dreams…slammed shut.
My life, my dreams seem to be unfolding so much slower than everyone elses’s.
I listen to high school graduates with clearly defined dreams as they plan their next journey.
I step back, look at my life…. almost 40…my mind wanders to dreams yet discovered. Life often does not follow the neatly designed plan one would wish.
My dreams to write, to work in long term care administration, to adopt, to travel…some realized, some still held close to my heart, none forgotten.
Doors opening as my heart opens more, God speaking His truth into my soul.
A story published, an opportunity presenting itself…
This book….Draw the Circle, the 40 Day Prayer Challenge…my third time reading it. I finish it, I start again. It reminds me of His promises, His loves, His protection.
This today … “Go, Set, Ready”….you’ll never be ready.
No time is a good time. We make room for what is important to us. He opens doors and closes doors at the right times, in the right places, with the right people.
He doesn’t promise it will be easy but time after time, He promises to be there with us.
Sometimes you have to go before you feel ready. You have to take that step of faith to set you in the right direction. You may never feel ready, but when God says go, then it is time to go.
My door has opened.
I think you are more ready than what you realize.
Words of confirmation spoken to me by someone I respect deeply.
Now is my time to go. To take a step of faith. To learn as I go. To trust Him. He will guide my path.
Go….before you feel ready or you may never go.
Set….pray and take that step of faith.
Ready….if you have been praying and listening, you will hear His voice as He opens and closes doors.
The path may not lead in the direction you anticipated, but God honors a step of faith in obedience.
What’s holding you back?
