"Behold, I stand t the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him and he with me." Revelation 3:20 KJV
You are at the right place! While today has ushered in some challenges and anxieties which were not anticipated, these circumstances, though fraught with stress, provide another opportunity for GOD to "break open the windows of heaven " and to open another door for you! Consequently, that which looks like obstacle is really opportunity...in other words, metaphorically, it is really like the "soot-covered maiden," unbeknown to others and even herself, as she had forgotten who she really is...believing it to be only a dream, who is in reality, CINDERELLA, or the Hunchback of Notre Dame disfigured and despised by many who on the outside appeared inimical, yet on the inside whose soul is as beautiful and spectacular as a multifaceted diamond!
Too many times, we have found ourselves staring at a closed door. Only when we have reached beyond the vestibule of our woundedness, complacency, fear, depression, loneliness, anger, sadness, doubt, and finite thinking can we see and access the open door to spectacular possibilities! God's love and your possibilities!
As we step through the door, suddenly, we become like Dorothy who was catapulted by turbulent world-winds into a strange land. She stepped into the "Land of Oz" not fully via her own volition, but by the force of grace, which like air, cannot be seen, but felt. Consequently, the world becomes alive with color, joy, and possibilities we have never allowed ourselves to imagine before and love we have never allowed ourselves feel before.
In essence, we know that OZ, The Ball, nor the ringing of The Bell does not last forever, neither are they experienced without the mixture of positive and negative danger. However, it enables our world to come alive with rich vivid color, infinite possibilities, and rich meaning! We can experience renewed hope and love daily! In essence, Cinderella offers us new garments of God, the Hunchback of Notre Dame the Holy Invocation to look inward, and still Dorothy the freedom allow to ourselves to journey through many doors which lead to new paths.
You must not only to look for another open door, but walk through that door!
Walk through the open door waiting for you!
Trust God! It is right there.
